Tuesday, May 22 6 – 7:30 p.m. Buy Tickets Members: $12 Public: $20
When Florence Knoll married the company’s founder in 1946, she was already a designer and architect in her own right having studied alongside Mies van der Rohe, among others. Learn how her business savvy and vision transformed a furniture design firm into an enterprise that played a major role in defining the mid-century modern design aesthetic.
Liz Zaczek has represented KnollStudio’s mid-century modern classic furniture products in the Chicago and Wisconsin markets for the past 2 years. In her position with KnollStudio, Zaczek educates students and the community on the history of mid-century modern furniture design and Florence Knoll’s role in its development.
