Florence Knoll is one of America's most important and influential designers. Over the course of her distinguished career, she made countless contributions to architecture, and interior design. After studying architecture at Cranbrook in London, she worked with Bauhaus head Walter Gropius, the legendary Marcel Breuer and Wallace Harrison.
The influence from Gropius, Breuer, Van der Rohe and the Bauhaus is obvious when one examines Florence Knoll's designs. She used a highly minimalist approach to tables, seating and other designs.
Florence Knoll can be attributed with changing American workspace with her philosophy based around "total design." Knoll's integrated use of architecture, interior design, textiles, and presentation changed the way design was approached. This philosophy was also applied to space saving techniques for office space, which is still used today. In 2002 Florence Knoll was awarded the National Endowment for the Arts' prestigious National Medal of Arts. While working with the greatest masters of contemporary design as the Associates Planning Unit Director for Knoll, Florence Schust Knoll was able to design her "lounge collection" in 1954. More than a half century later, Florence Schust Knoll holds her own place in design history.
