Knoll Textiles Celebrates its 75th Anniversary With Updated Archive Textiles
The 1947 founding of Knoll’s textile division was sparked by the lack of upholstery options available in the post-war period. So, to cover her modernist furnishings, Florence Knoll turned to menswear fabric. Now, to celebrate Knoll Textiles’s 75th, the company launches eight updated archive textiles under the Heritage collection. Evolving the original design, Evelyn Hill’s open-net Filigree drapery from 1965 now comes in flame-resistant Trevira CS polyester and more colorways. 1972’s Rivers by Gretl and Leo Wollner switches from 3-meter cotton panels to a fullwidth repeat in bleach-cleanable polyester. Another standout is the handicraft aesthetic of polyester-blend Homage, which fuses three archival finds, Buster (1947), Jupiter (1967), and Marabu (1972), into an eccentric patchwork with contrast stitching.
