EAST GREENVILLE, Pa., November 19, 2020— Knoll, Inc. (NYSE:KNL), a constellation of design-driven brands for the workplace and home, today launched a cause marketing partnership with global housing non-profit Habitat for Humanity. The debut coincides with the Knoll Cyber Week Holiday Sale.
The partnership expands the Knoll commitment to good design and sustainable building practices. Last year, Habitat helped over 7 million people build or improve a place to call home. The organization builds sustainable buildings, largely by following energy-efficient construction standards that prioritize safety, health and materials conservation. Habitat prioritizes locally available materials and climate-sensitive designs.
“Giving back to the communities where we live and work has been part of the Knoll culture since our founding. Our partnership with Habitat is an exciting new way we can build on that heritage and make an impact on affordable housing,” said Andrew Cogan, Knoll Chairman and CEO.
From November 20, 2020 to December 31, 2021 customers will be able to donate $5.00 to Habitat for Humanity at checkout at the Shop at knoll.com and on orders placed at retail Knoll Home Design Shops in New York and Los Angeles. Knoll will match all customer donations up to a total of $100,000.
