Knoll, which always maintains the Modern Always philosophy, uniquely blends the brand’s values, timeless line and Knoll comfort with new collaborations.

Piero Lissoni first began collaborating with Knoll in 2007 with an experimental project dedicated to offices. Starting with WA, a modular system inspired by the Japanese philosophy of simple living, the partnership continues with iconic products such as Avio, Matrioska, Red Baron and Grasshoper.

Complementing his designs with a distinctive elegance and aesthetics with the chair collections of the KN collection and the Gould sofa with a modernist air reminiscent of 1950s America, Lissoni uniquely blends his own contemporary line with the values of the brand.

Born and raised in Milan, Piero Lissoni is one of today’s most important architects and interior designers. Lissoni is known for his nuanced sense of proportion in his minimal designs, reflected from the Alessi espresso maker to furniture collections such as Knoll. Lissoni’s characteristic refined details and extreme comfort elevate interiors, harmoniously complementing furniture of any period and style.

In 2020, Knoll presents Matic, a sofa component designed by Piero Lissoni that evokes a platform suspended in space between an island and an architectural structure.

Matic’s distinctive feature is its technological elements within its aesthetic structure. Low, linear seats enhanced with quilted detailing can be combined with internal mechanism armrests and backs that offer structural support and comfort.

Among the novelties is the seating collection KN06, an expansion of the KN Collection family presented by Piero Lissoni in 2018, adding a stylistic elegance to the understated design.

With its elegant, slender legs and available in several variations, KN06 fits perfectly into any environment, from a modern, elegant living room to a luxurious lounge area.

Piero Lissoni describes the creative process behind his collections in the following words,
The visible form is the synthesis, the transparency; the invisible part, the work that makes it possible for the visible to come to life. The success of a sofa, of a chair, of an arm-chair depends on the way in which the visible and invisible speak to each other.

Lissoni Collections – Moodboards

In line with the “Modern Always” philosophy, Knoll and Lissoni have created a product collection that perfectly interprets the brand’s values: the timeless image and the consistent design with which the company has always been identified, skillfully combining uniqueness and comfort, Knoll’s revolutionary idea was from the beginning to think of the space, not the individual furniture element. This approach has resulted in products where functionality and aesthetic value are on the same level. The success of pieces designed in different time periods, but belonging to the same design philosophy, was determined by Florence Knoll’s vision of a new “total design” approach to modernist principles.
