Based on these excellent results, in 2016 the collaboration continues between Knoll and the designer, who after years of work in Italy has opened his own studio in London. “The objective is to introduce a discreet product that is silently attuned to the surrounding space. This is the thinking behind the conception and design of the new products, which will then work perfectly with the company’s classic icons,” says Benjamin Pardo, Executive Vice President for Design of Knoll.
The study of space and objects, with extreme attention to detail, has enabled Krusin to propose a series of items that are precisely aligned with the philosophy that has always inspired Knoll’s work: discretion and timeless quality.
“I often think about the objects I design as classics: presences that stand out for their discretion and balance. And my job is to perfect them, honing the proportions, the details, to improve their image and their functional quality. I have imagined this seating family as noble objects, that you learn to appreciate more with the passage of time. Something like a bespoke suit, that gets more elegant with wear. For this collection I wanted to create bespoke beauty, perceptible in the fine workmanship and the details.”
