New Lounge Collection for Knoll Praised by Complex Magazine

Freshome and Mocoloco Also Highlight New Collection by Pierre Beucler and Jean-Christophe Poggioli

November 16, 2012

The Lounge Collection, designed for Knoll by Pierre Beucler and Jean-Christophe Poggioli, is praised by Complex Magazine, Freshome and Mocoloco for the Collection's strong visual presence and elegance.

The Lounge Collection is highlighted for adding "big style to even the smallest living room" in an October 30, 2012 post on Mocoloco, a web magazine dedicated to modern and contemporary design.

"This new set, Lounge Collection by Architecture & Associés, hits [the] nail on the head and builds on an already sound legacy," notes Nick Schonberger of Complex Magazine. "[It's] perfect for those who've just bought an airy new loft."

"Modernist masters, Knoll International have a superb track record of brilliant releases and sensationally designed furniture," continues Schonberger.

The Lounge Collection, which debuted at Salone 2012 in May and previewed at NeoCon 2012 in June, includes an arm chair, two and three seat sofas, a chaise lounge and an ottoman.

The fully upholstered surround "envelop and comfort the sitter." The composition of the furniture is characterized by graceful transition between the surround and its upholstered core. The signature leg, evoking the purity of refined women's footwear, elegantly delivers the frame to the floor.

"Its highly modern appearance makes each of the items easy to integrate in a variety of contemporary arrangements and create a strong visual effect," comments Freshome.
