When Marketing asked Knoll Director of Design Benjamin Pardo to develop a new monitor arm collection — something that would be simple and intuitive without sacrificing usability — he immediately thought of Richard Sapper.

Sapper designed his eponymous chair for Knoll in 1979, a product celebrated for its quiet style and sensible control mechanisms. Pardo: “Here was an opportunity to work on a kinetic object with a guy who does that absolutely wonderfully.”

Sapper’s signature refined aesthetic brought simplicity and intelligence to a category crowded with overly-complicated, ill-considered designs. The Sapper™ Monitor Arm Collection sets a new standard for intuitive functionality, ease of reconfiguration and unobtrusive visual elegance, or as Sapper put it himself, “Everything is done so it explains itself.”
