Florence Knoll (née Schust) is primarily remembered as an architect, furniture designer, and interior designer.
Knoll felt that architects should use their well-honed design instincts to produce furniture as well as architecture. In accordance with this philosophy, Knoll recruited architects to Knoll, Inc. such as Eero Saarinen, Marcel Breuer, Pierre Jeanneret and Hans Bellman.
The Oval Table/Desk pictured above embodies Knoll’s love of simple, geometric design. It has an oak oval top, perched on a chrome steel pedestal base.
