Knoll Celebrates 75 years of Iconic Design for the Home and Office

Modern always Campaign Launched in Social Media; Follow #modernalways

February 7, 2013

To celebrate 75 years of design, Knoll is launching Modern always, an integrated communications campaign. The cross-platform program embodies the essence of Knoll design innovation and celebrates the Knoll brand — past, present and future -- since the company's founding in 1938. Throughout this year, Knoll will be bringing its story of modern design to life as well as focusing on how Knoll is helping to set the standards for sustainable design.

Modern always will launch across six social platforms identified by the searchable hashtag #modernalways. The digital effort is reaching beyond the Knoll website to Facebook, Twitter, a new Instagram handle, Tumblr, YouTube and Pinterest. The goal is to reach a diverse audience of design enthusiasts as well as design professionals and their clients in the commercial, government, healthcare, education and residential sectors.

Knoll fans will have multiple ways to engage with the Modern always campaign, which will include 75 "modern always" moments from Knoll's history.

Follow the conversation on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Pinterest using the hashtag #modernalways.
