The elegant and refined Florence Knoll Relax 2-Seater Sofa was designed for the leading manufacturer Knoll International by the much revered, American-born architect and designer Florence Knoll. After she graduated from the Cranberry Institute of Art, the young designer obtained a degree in architecture from the Illinois Institute of Technology. Equally successful as both an architect and furniture designer, Knoll's most famous projects include the Connecticut Life Insurance building and New York's CBS building. During the 1950's, Florence Knoll's work was on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art and in 2002, she received the National Medal of Arts.
Although first designed and manufactured in the early 1950's, the Florence Knoll Relax 2-Seater Sofa is still a timeless, classic piece of furniture that complements modern and contemporary décor, as well as more traditional rooms and themes. The premium-quality, supple leather covers the entire piece, including the arm-rests. The sturdy frame is constructed from chrome and ensures that the furniture is robust and long lasting. This charming sofa comfortably seats two people, and it measures 159 x 80 x 88 cm, with a seat height of 43cm.
