The KN04 chair, with more compact proportions and ideal for completing domestic corners where relaxation is a style, has been added together with the KN05 settee, with a very distinctive feature. Both have a fixed structure in chromium-plated or coated metal rod, and a shell produced in polyurethane and covered in leather or fabric.
The salient feature of the project is the shell, a smooth, curved unit for both the KN04 and the KN05, which gives the pieces a recognizable, original design. Though this latter aspect has been simplified, the new versions become very versatile seats that offer pure relaxation. Ideal for domestic spaces and waiting rooms, all the way to informal office settings, KN04 and KN05 are perfectly coordinated with all the collections in the Knoll catalogue, where the elegant, sophisticated touch of Piero Lissoni generates an aesthetic of lightness that sets the tone of the entire KN family.
Piero Lissoni has a wide-ranging practice including product design, graphic design, interior design, architectural and industrial design. Born in 1956 in Italy he studied architecture at the Polytechnic of Milan in collaboration with the University of Barcelona, before founding his own studio in 1984.
Knoll products are defined by a distinct modern sensibility. From classics by the likes of Mies van der Rohe to ground-breaking designs by contemporary creatives including Marc Newson, David Adjaye, Barber Osgerby and Rem Koolhaas.
