Knoll and Gensler New Jersey Team Up for Fashion Meets Finish 2019In preparation for the event, Gensler designers visited the Knoll plant in East Greenville.
For the last five years, the New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware Chapter of IIDA has hosted "Fashion Meets Finish." For its sixth annual event, IIDA set the theme as "The Art of the In Between." Sixteen design teams will be participating, one of which is Gensler NJ. The event is taking place on October 10th at the iconic Bellworks building, designed by Eero Saarinen and originally opened as Bell Labs in 1962. The space has been recently restored and re-opened as a two million square foot "metrohub."
To gather inspiration and prepare for the show, Gina Morgan, Knoll A&D Manager, invited Gensler NJ to the Knoll plant in East Greenville, PA. Designers from Gensler NJ explored a vast array of materials and KnollTextiles. Fabric in hand, designers left the plant to begin designing for October 10. Stay tuned for a recap of the event.
