    Marc Krusin: “The chair has a particularly traditional framework — arm at a certain height, back at a certain height — and it has to do certain things, it has to be a robust chair. Within that framework, we worked tremendously on the proportion. Both proportion in the macro sense — the height of the arms with relation to the height of the back and the height of the seat, and also proportion on the micro scale —the angles of each rail of wood, you know, they’re not just square blocks.

    “We spent a lot of time making changes that were not only aesthetic, but also structural and made a difference from an ease of fabrication point. It was actually very interesting, a lot of the time we’d be cutting something off, or taking an angle out, and what I found was that it actually gave something back to the design, it simplified it.

    “I see it as being a design that can fit into a lot of scenarios. To me, there is something very noble about an object, a chair, whatever it may be, that sits within a space not shouting for your attention, but blending into it. The outcome is absolutely contemporary, but at the same time absolutely classic and absolutely timeless.”
     

    Marc Krusin is steadily making a name for himself as one of the most promising and exciting young designers in the industry. After graduating from Leeds Metropolitan University with a degree in furniture design, Krusin founded the Milan-based group Codice 31 with five other designers. Krusin is also the Design Manager at Piero Lissoni’s office where he is responsible for a client list that includes Alessi, Thonet, Flos, and Knoll. Additionally, Krusin has established his own firm Klay, and was honored in the Europe 40 under 40, an annual program that celebrates the best young European designers.

    In 2006 Knoll International introduced wa, a brilliantly simple office system designed by Marc Krusin and Piero Lissoni. wa’s defining feature, a patented 360 degree clip mechanism, allows any component to be attached to any workstation, on any side. There are no predetermined connection points.

    Marc Krusin collaborated with Knoll again to introduce the Krusin Guest Seating and Table Collection, elegant wooden designs with an industrialized craft aesthetic. The chair design was awarded the 2011 GOOD DESIGN Award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design.

    Krusin's latest introduction with Knoll is Anchor™, a portfolio of individual storage products that includes credenzas, doublewide pedestals and lockers.
