Many offices in America were furnished according to the same scheme because of Florence Knoll’s pioneering work together with the Knoll Planning Unit. Florence Knoll designed her Florence Table in order to create a place which would be better adapted to the communicative function than furnishings were before.
With her knowledge about architecture, Knoll banished the intimidating, massive table and replaced it by an inviting solution: The Florence Couch Table of 1961 is clearly inspired by Mies van der Rohe, one of Florence Knoll’s mentors. Some say that Florence Knoll had an argument with one of the employees because of a 16th and 32nd particle of an inch, in the moment of designing the proportions of the table.
The details of the Florence Couch Table are simple and make up clear beauty with perfect dimensions. These characteristics fast took the table out of offices and into numerous homes and public rooms all over the world.
There are different table tops available, for example out of marble or glass. We will gladly advise you for individual configurations.
