Architect and designer Florence Knoll Bassett has had a profound influence on over 50 years of building interiors. As the director of the Knoll Planning Unit, she revolutionized interior planning by implementing a “total design” approach that embraced everything about each unique space, including architecture, graphics and textiles. She brought those same sensibilities to designing her furniture, illustrated by the Hairpin Stacking Table (1948) and other pieces. Based on the compact design of earlier studies using steel rods at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, it received accolades in the International Design Competition held by the American Institute of Decorators in the year of its inception. This versatile table, reintroduced by Knoll for the first time in decades, features a durable steel base and laminate top. Stacks up to five high. Made in U.S.A.
