Architect and designer Florence Knoll Bassett has had a profound influence on more than 50 years of buildings' interiors. As the director of the Knoll Planning Unit, Knoll Bassett revolutionized interior planning by implementing a "total design" approach that embraced everything about a space, including architecture, graphics and textiles. She brought the same sensibilities to designing furniture, illustrated by her iconic Two-Seater Bench (1954) and other pieces. The Bench is manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Frames made in Italy, upholstered in U.S.A.
