Description

As founder and director of Knoll Planning Unit, the space-planning arm of the furniture company founded by her late husband in 1938, Florence Knoll almost singlehandedly defined the look of midcentury-modern corporate interiors. To her, furniture was just one aspect of her “total design” approach to interiors, and when she couldn’t find a piece she needed, she designed it herself. She modestly referred to her furniture designs as the “meat and potatoes” of an interior, yet to this very day they hold the same iconic appeal as that basic, functional meal. Believing that an executive’s desk should be a tool to facilitate communication, she designed her pedestal-base Executive Desk (1961) – first known as Model 2485 – to serve as both a desk and table in order to promote collaboration. This is the authentic Florence Knoll Executive Desk by Knoll, with the KnollStudio logo and designer’s signature stamped into its base. The Florence Knoll Executive Desk must ship with our White Glove delivery service. Made in U.S.A.
