In 1965 Florence Knoll retired from Knoll Associates, Inc., where she had served
as design director and head of both KnollTextiles and the Knoll Planning Unit.
From its founding in the late 1930s, the firm exerted a profound influence on
the modern interior through the design and production of furniture and textiles
and through its interior design service for private and corporate clients. In this
lecture Bobbye Tigerman will trace Florence Knoll’s education and training and
explore how she combined the resources of the firm’s three divisions to create
the distinctive “Knoll look” and to shape the nature of modern postwar interior
Bobbye Tigerman is assistant curator of decorative arts and design at the Los
Angeles County Museum of Art.
