Original Florence Knoll Design
With her architect’s eye and keen sense of proportion, Florence Knoll knew that furniture could make daily life a well-designed pleasure—a fact that’s true as ever today. Presenting the reissue of Florence Knoll™ Model 31 Lounge Chair and Model 33 Sofa, two archival designs that speak in a contemporary voice.
A Florence Knoll Design
Seventy years since its debut, the Florence Knoll Model 31 and Model 33 speak effortlessly in a contemporary voice. With their tubular steel bases and thoughtfully scaled cushions, these pedigreed pieces have a light visual footprint. They offer a supportive sit with a casual posture, making it a versatile option for the modern home or office.
Proportion and Scale
As head of the Knoll Planning Unit, Florence Knoll had a holistic understanding of interiors and paid special attention to scale in her furniture designs. The Model 31 and Model 33 exemplify approachable seating with just-right proportion. Lightweight and strong, they can convey a sense of welcome in residential, workplace, and hospitality settings—an effortless fit for small spaces and repeatable for larger contexts.
An Ideal Canvas
The rectilinear cushions of the Model 31 and Model 33 lend themselves easily to different types of upholstery, thanks to their uncomplicated construction and streamlined shape. The versatile seating offers a brilliant opportunity to specify custom Knoll Textiles, from colorful weaves to durable leather and vinyl, all with the high-quality craftsmanship, timeless aesthetics, and historical significance for which Knoll is known.
