In this conversation, the designers will talk about the innovative work that they did for Knoll—how it informed, or remained independent of their current work in the studio—and their role in educating a new generation of designers.

Suzanne Tick is the head of Suzanne Tick, Inc. From 1997 to 2005, she was
creative director of KnollTextiles, and she continues to design for the company.
