Walter Knol FK bucket seat chair


Walter Knoll FK armchair made by Preben Fabricius & Jørgen Kastholm. The Walter Knoll FK armchair is completely dressed in leather and amazes with its simple yet very elegant aesthetic. The FK armchair (first prize "Gute Form" in 1969) is the direct descendant of the FK Bucket armchair, icon of Scandinavian minimalist and classic design of the late 1960s, also made by Preben Fabricius and Jørgen Kastholm. As a dignified heir, in the clean lines of the FK armchair, as well as in its low chair, we find the influence of mid-20th century furniture. Upholstered in very beautiful white leather, the wrap-around seat offers rare comfort to the occupant. The base in 5 aluminum branches is equipped with wheels that allow it to move easily. The FK armchair is a design and practical creation, ideal for working. Who said office chairs can't be aesthetically pleasing? Price per piece, not adjustable in height. Walter Knoll's father, Wilhelm Knoll, founded the Knoll dynasty in the mid-19th century. Walter Knoll took over his father's company with his brother in 1907, specializing in the production of leather chairs. Together they create the first German club chair. Success came quickly: Walter Knoll's famous range of "Animott" armchairs furnished luxury zeppelins. The firm will also collaborate with the great German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe to furnish five of his creations. Today Walter Knoll continues to create design icons.

Brand / designer:Knoll

Knoll deelt samen met Vitra wellicht de nummer 1 positie als het gaat om het op de markt brengen van legendarisch design icons. Denk aan de Barcelona Chair van Mies van der Rohe en de Tulip table van Eero Saarinen. Knoll werd in 1938 in New York opgericht door de Duitse Hans Knoll die een meubelzaak van zijn vader overnam. In 1955 komt Hans Knoll om het leven bij een auto ongeluk in Cuba en neemt zijn vrouw Florence Knoll, die al langer in het bedrijf werkzaam was, de leiding over. Florence is eveneens ontwerper en onder meer geschoold door Marcel Breuer van wie Knoll later de Wassily Chair in de collectie krijgt. Je mag gerust onder de indruk zijn van het team aan topontwerpers dat zij aan Knoll wisten te binden zoals Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Harry Bertoia en Eero Saarinen. Knoll staat bekend om haar moderne visie en is zeker vandaag de dag één van de populairste design merken.
