Designed to last lifetimes.

Our most essential environmentalism is simply anti-obsolescence. Our products are designed to endure, both physically and stylistically. Things that work are things you keep—we want your Knoll furniture to be shared with future generations and be enjoyed for years to come. Not end up in a landfill.​

We imagine, design and manufacture with the environment in mind.

When engaging with sustainable design, its important we consider each and every material that goes into our products. Our clean manufacturing practices minimize impact by conserving natural resources and reducing waste. We are an industry pioneer in advocating for, and submitting our products to, independent third-party certification, including the Declare labeling program. We believe that respected third parties provide the most impartial and trustworthy foundation for broad compliance.
