Architecture for the Workplace.

Through decades of experience and accumulated knowledge, we understand that one planning model rarely provides a solution for the whole office. AutoStrada synthesizes 40 years of Knoll’s best ideas to deliver a comprehensive, architectural system that accommodates the full spectrum of your company’s workspace needs.


Designed with four planning modes — spine-based, storage-based, wall-based, and table-based — AutoStrada offers an aesthetically consistent design solution for the entire workplace. So whether you require a high-performance open plan system, architectural case goods, progressive private office furniture or a collaborative “big table” concept — or a mix of all four — AutoStrada is the answer.

Featured Projects

In the late 1990s, Knoll identified the role of a new system, a product that would combine the specific strengths of several Knoll systems — the technology management of Currents®, the modular flexibility of Morrison and the elegance of Reff™.

Charles Rozier worked with Robert and Douglas Reuter to engineer the most comprehensive Knoll office system ever offered. Douglas Reuter: “It was really an exercise in perpendiculars — figuring out how to re-envision the panel-based office system so as to maintain the modular logic while increasing flexibility and style.” Flexibility was achieved through the introduction of multiple planning modes and innovative engineering. Knoll design director Carl Magnusson took care of the aesthetic aspect, styling the collection with refined, clean detailing and classic modern materials.

The pragmatic architecture of AutoStrada, combined with the timeless quality of the finishing and details, ensures that it will never go out of style. While the technology management and modular engineering give it the flexibility to continue adapting to the changing workplace. AutoStrada is designed for the way we work today, and ready to support the ways we might work tomorrow.
