Milan, 18 April 2023 – At this year’s Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Knoll will debut a renewed design direction, led by Jonathan Olivares, Senior Vice President of Design, beginning with the introduction of the all-new Salone del Mobile pavilion. The pavilion—designed by OFFICE, the studio founded by Belgian architect duo Kersten Geers and David Van Severen— refers to the domestic scale, providing rooms, gathering spaces and gardens, and is built with recycled and recyclable materials.
The pavilion houses the brand’s new collections, such as Piero Lissoni's Outdoor Collection, a re-launch of an archival lounge-height Saarinen Table, and Richard Schultz's 1966 Collection in a dark red frame, alongside the brand’s iconic products, such as Tulip Chairs, Barcelona® Collection, Florence Knoll Sofa and Bertoia Collection.
“At its best, Knoll has acted as a platform that captured and catalyzed the zeitgeist in architecture and design,” said Jonathan Olivares, Senior Vice President of Design, Knoll. “The pavilion provides a residential setting for Knoll to inhabit with its existing and new collections, and a space to dream about future pieces as we embark on a new chapter in Knoll’s history.”
