 EAST GREENVILLE, Pa., May 30, 2019 -- Knoll, Inc.,(NYSE:KNL) a constellation of design-driven brands and people, will launch its Chicago Showroom at 811 W. Fulton Market on Monday, June 10. The new space will host the first-ever Knoll Design Days, June 10-12, an immersive event where Knoll will debut products, host engaging programs and inspire the design community and its clients with a new view of Chicago. Knoll will debut products across its constellation of brands – Knoll Office, KnollStudio, DatesWeiser, Spinneybeck | FilzFelt, KnollTextiles and Muuto – that reflect co-founder Florence Knoll’s pioneering “total design” perspective, which channeled the power of good design and blurred the lines between workplaces and homes.

During Knoll Design Days, Knoll will also host the Florence Knoll Women in Design Dialogues on June 10-11. The Dialogues honor Florence Knoll who passed away at 101 in January 2019 and will explore her “total design” approach in the context of today’s design, artistic and workplace environments.

Andrew Cogan, Knoll Chairman and CEO, said, “As the workplace constantly reinvents itself, our ever-evolving constellation of design-driven brands unites legacy and innovation to create inspired modern interiors that foster rich interactions and impact what we do.”

“The Fulton Market District, with its vibrant architecture and streetscapes, is the ideal setting for Knoll to present a transformative view of how we work and live today,” he added.

Designed in collaboration with Gensler, the 24,000 square foot space over three floors demonstrates ideas and inspiration for individuals, small groups and teams; natural materiality; architectural and acoustic harmony; hospitality experience; and engaging technology. The fifth floor is the North American flagship showroom of Scandinavian design brand Muuto, the latest addition to the Knoll constellation of brands. Muuto collaborates with the best of today’s contemporary designers to bring new perspectives to Scandinavian design through forward-looking materials, techniques and bold creative thinking.

Commenting on the new space, Benjamin Pardo, Knoll Design Director, said, “We’ve designed Fulton Market to inspire our commercial, education, healthcare, hospitality, residential and public sector clients to plan environments that adapt to evolving workstyles. Florence Knoll’s ‘total design’ perspective, blurring the lines between workplaces and homes, is more relevant than ever.”

Anders Cleemann, Muuto CEO, added, “At Muuto, we want to tell our story of new perspectives on Scandinavian design to the North American audience, showing how our collection of furniture, lighting and accessories can affect workplaces and public environments for the better. Our new space in Chicago is a natural extension of that desire as well as a means to engage a broader audience.”
