This elegant yet simple design has influenced so many designers since its original conception in 1954. Warmed through colour and texture, the Florence Knoll Lounge Relax family is a scaled-down translation of the rhythm and proportions of mid-century modern architecture.
With a square, geometric profile - an expression of the rational design approach Florence Knoll learned from her mentor, Mies van der Rohe - the sofa is utterly modern and totally timeless. The Relax versions were made with comfort and beauty in mind. This Knoll Florence Knoll Relax Sofa is a reinterpretation of the original designed by Florence Knoll in 1954. The original Sofa had a much firmer seat. This has now been redesigned by Knoll to give a softer sit for modern, more relaxed living.
