Knoll | Favourite Piece

Share a photo of your favorite Knoll piece and tell us why you love it!

We've shared an image of the Womb Chair, designed by Eero Saarinen, which was inspired by Florence Knoll's request to design a chair that "is like a basket full of pillows…something I can curl up in.”

Like many of Saarinen’s furniture designs, the Womb Chair required production techniques and materials still in the infancy of their existence. Saarinen and Knoll found a boat builder in New Jersey who was experimenting with fiberglass and resin to help develop manufacturing methods for the new chair.

Florence Knoll: “He was very skeptical. We just begged him. I guess we were so young and so enthusiastic he finally gave in and worked with us. We had lots of problems and failures until they finally got a chair that would work.”

The Wassily Chair (B3 chair) was designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925-1926. Minimalist, eye catching, architectural.

My favourite. Classic design, funky, can add a pop of colour. Plus, it's ridiculously comfortable.
