When the opportunity to develop a new lounge collection arose in 2007, Knoll Director of Design Benjamin Pardo immediately went to German designers Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub.

My name is Alexandra Diaz, but everyone calls me Alex.
I am a senior Interior Design major, graduating this coming May.
I can’t wait to hopefully move onto graduate school to earn a Masters degree in Architecture.
My dream is to design homes, inside and out. My biggest inspiration is Rick Joy.
I am taking Parametrics to get myself acquainted with programs I might need in the future…
Here’s the chair I will be working on for the first project:
