Walter Knoll choses Cologne as an exceptional showcase to present this year’s new products, including the Muud sofa. Eoos is behind the design of sofa, a unique, light sofa, designed for urban, even smaller-scale floor plans. Muud unites clarity and coziness with functional diversity.
The fil rouge linking the new 2020 proposals is lightness.This confidence is based on modernity, which with its maxim of “less is more” is without doubt the most sustainable design school of all. And like the masters of modernity, Walter Knoll takes its design language from archaic patterns, colors and attributes which are interpreted with caution. The new products tell this story. A story of passion for leather, fabrics and wood, and how Walter Knoll uses them to create furniture and spaces which move us and have meaning. What remains is of value.
Also from EOOS is the minimalistic masterpiece Cuoio – a chair the designers reduced to such an extent that using any less material would make it float.
With the design language of the 1950s in mind, Walter Knoll has added two new family members to the iconic 375 series. The 375 Barstool and the 375 Relaxchair, an armchair like a good friend. And what these new products have in common is the brand promise of Walter Knoll. With the enduring confidence that they will remain for a long time to come – as classics.
Walter Knoll has been certified as a climate-neutral manufacturer for years. The building, the production facilities, as well as the processes fulfil the highest international sustainability standards. Only the very best materials are used to ensure sustainability and environmental compatibility. And we have reduced their deployment to an absolute minimum. At the same time, Walter Knoll cultivates old virtues and the techniques of craftsmanship and continuously develops them further to take them into the future.
