This elegant yet simple design has influenced so many designers since its original conception in 1954. Warmed through colour and texture, the Florence Knoll Settee 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 settee is utterly modern and totally timeless.
