Interior Design's video report from the Salone del Mobile 2016, "Milan Minute: People and Products at Salone del Mobile 2016," includes Benjamin Pardon, Design Director, Knoll, and the designer Marc Krusin. Knoll debuted the Krusin Collection 016 to the European market at the industry trade show this year;
Pardo opens the video by observing of Salone: "I find a very calm tone and a relatively elegant tone, and a calmer palette associated with a lot of the things that are taking place."
Later, Krusin comments on the Krusin Collection 016, his latest collection of seating for Knoll, saying, "What we wanted was a chair that had real presence but at the same time was discreet and silent."
The Krusin Collection 016 includes three chairs: a seat with or without armrests and an armchair with an enveloping back. All three types are unified by the same base and are available in die-cast aluminum or solid ash in a range of finishes.
Krusin has collaborated with Knoll on impeccably designed and calibrated workplace pieces since 2011. Pixel™ by Marc Krusin, which Knoll introduced at NeoCon last year, received Best of NeoCon GOLD in the Tables: Training and Work category.
Knoll also presented new collections by Piero Lissoni, alongside modern classics by Florence Knoll, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Eero Saarinen, and Harry Bertoia. The Knoll booth was designed by the critically acclaimed architecture firm OMA. Learn more about the Knoll at Salone 2016.
