Reff Profiles™

Pragmatic Planning for the Whole Office.

Inspired by the functionalist vision of the modern masters, Reff Profiles delivers a progressive and architectural design solution for private offices, administrative areas and open plan environments.


Building on the Reff tradition of high-quality wood casegoods, Reff Profiles offers broadened aesthetic options and increased design flexibility, with components ranging from grounded work walls to freestanding desks and tables to support different applications, aesthetics and budgets. From the corner office in floor-to-ceiling walnut, to the fast-paced team space in glass and aluminum, Reff Profiles delivers.

Key Benefits

FLEXIBILITY AND SCALABILITY. Reff Profiles components are scaled and detailed to transition from the private office to open plan workspaces. New enhancements are compatible with previously installed Reff components, ensuring the long-term viability of the furniture investment.

AESTHETIC QUALITY AND DIVERSITY. With combinations of wood, glass, aluminum and painted components, Reff Profiles offers a broad range of aesthetic options. Multiple leg styles and pull options enhance the clean lines and simple architectural forms of the case and surface components.

INTEGRATED TECHNOLOGY SUPPORT. Power and data cables are managed discretely via grommets, powered grommets, a universal cable curtain, removable modesty panels and open back storage elements.

Featured Projects

The story of Reff Profiles begins in 1964, when three brothers and a friend—Robert, Eric, Frank and Fred—started Reff Furniture with the motto, “Quality. Value. Service.” In 1978, interested in incorporating modular construction into contemporary design, the company moved exclusively to the design and development of office furnishings.

Five years later, System 6 was introduced, a revolutionary wood-panel office system that is still at the heart of Reff Profiles. Knoll acquired Reff and combined System 6 with another Reff product, System Z and rebranded it as simply Reff.

In 2010, 27 years after the System 6 debut, Knoll collaborated with Brian Graham to enhance and expand Reff. Reff Profiles retains the quality for which Reff has always been known, while adding new ideas, proportions and finishes.

Brian Graham: “We’ve really rechristened the classic look for the modern workplace. We’ve created a series of freestanding cabinetry and credenzas that are lifted off the ground, so they communicate lightness in scale and a fluidity that are very modern. The same exact storage componentry comes into the open office, which really fulfills the original Reff promise of total, seamless integration of the workplace.”


“For me sustainability isn’t just a buzzword, it’s integrated into the entire design process. Timeless, classic design is, in and of itself, sustainable.”
