Islands Collection by Knoll®

In today’s collaborative workplace, tables shape conversations, in person and virtually, like never before. There are few functions to which the table cannot be adapted, with endless possibilities for arrangement in open spaces and private offices.

Imaginative in form, function and materials, Islands, designed by Dan Grabowski, shapes the conversation and supports work in a variety of office spaces. Islands includes a range of table styles for use throughout the workplace, including meeting and conference tables as well as side, coffee, dining and café tables.

Dan Grabowski hails from Detroit and is a graduate of The College for Creative Studies. His life’s work was inspired early on by his father who is a builder and by a friend’s father who was an automotive designer. He wanted to pursue a career that combined his love of art and working with his hands. He considered being a sculptor, but then he studied the work of Harry Bertoia in college, where he discovered the connection between sculpture and industrial design. That is when Dan knew he wanted to build things that were inherently functional and beautiful.

After graduating from The Center for Creative Studies, Grabowski worked on a range of projects, including power tools for Sears Craftsman and infant care products for Gerber. His primary focus, however, has been furniture design, with a special passion for wood casegoods.
