I Am Not A Decorator
In loving memory of a leading woman in the contemporary furniture design -Florence Basset Knoll, who was a great talent and an agent for others in the male-dominated world of post-war modern.
Anyone who appreciates classic designs has to thank Knoll Bassett for revolutionizing the way we live and work in the modern home and office. Florence, who joined the company in 1943, created timeless works that comprised nearly a third of Knoll’s catalog offers. She studied under Mies van der Rohe and Eliel Saarinen and worked with leaders of the Bauhaus movement, including Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, and Wallace K. Harrison
