FLORENCE KNOLL CREDENZA As a pioneer of the Knoll Planning Unit, Florence Knoll created what she
modestly referred to as the “fill-in pieces that no one else wants to do.” She refers to her own line of desks as the “meat
and potatoes” which had to be provided. “I did it because I needed the piece of furniture for a job and it wasn’t there,
so I designed it.” Like so many of her groundbreaking designs that became the gold standard for the industry, the 1961
executive collection made its way into the pantheon of modern classics. Florence Knoll’s designs are reserved and cool,
severe and angular, reflecting the objective perfectionism of the early 1960s.
