You know Knoll better than you know.


According to an exhibit at San Francisco’s Academy of Art University, there’s a bit of Florence Knoll in everyone’s office space. The exhibit includes a message that reads, “The traditional mid-century desk was an oblong box with many drawers and a table behind it that tended to become cluttered with paper. Florence Knoll reversed this plan, creating a desk that could be used as a conference table and adding a credenza behind it for ample concealed storage.”

The exhibit ends today, October 25, but you may still be able to watch a video about it on the Academy’s website.
