Florence Knoll was a leading force of modern design. She worked from 1945 to 1965 at Knoll Associates, first as business partner with her husband Hans Knoll, later as president after his death, and, finally, as design director. Her commissions became hallmarks of the modern era, including the Barcelona Chair, the Diamond Chair and the Platner Collection. This title looks at Knoll's extraordinary career in close-up, from her student days to her professional accomplishments.
