Walter Knoll is known as the oldest upholstery brand in Germany. Founded in 1865, the company continues to make its mark in the history of furniture; it has created classic pieces and icons of the avant-garde and is a by-word throughout the world for modern design. Since the end of the last century, the company has grown considerably, has increased its output seven-fold and today is one of the trendsetters at the premium end of the market.
Design awards: Over eighty international awards for product design over the last fifteen years, several architecture prizes for the brandland building which was opened in 2006 in Herrenberg, a multiple prize-winning corporate film and accolades for the company's ability to communicate its brand philosophy all bear witness to its endeavour to make a holistic contribution to design. The first Design Management Europe Award presented in 2007 is a characteristic example.
