The Washington Collection for Knoll, David Adjaye's first collection of furniture, transforms his architectural and sculptural vision into accessible objects for the home and office. The collection consists of two cantilevered side chairs, a club chair, an ottoman, a side table and a monumental coffee table.
David Adjaye said, "It has been hugely exciting to work with Knoll’s team. The design concept has been enriched by the intensely collaborative engagement and as a result, this collection challenges materiality and form in much the same way that I try to work within the architectural context."
Commenting on Adjaye’s work, Knoll design director Benjamin Pardo said, "David is doing really innovative and important architectural projects, and what really interested us was to see that work on an entirely new scale."
Adjaye’s limited edition cast bronze coffee table reflects this cross-over. The sculptural table with a clear glass top is constructed from four cast bronze panels, and four connecting plates. The roughhewn exterior contrasts the highly reflective, hand polished interior surface. To mark our 75th anniversary the bronze coffee table is limited to an edition of 75.
