“In 1938, Hans Knoll, then aged just 24 years old, arrived in the United States from Germany. One month later, he nailed a sign on the door of a single second storey room in New York that read: Factory No. 1. The Hans G. Knoll Furniture Company. From this humble beginning, his company, Knoll, grew to become one of the 20th century’s most influential producers of contemporary furniture. Seventy years later, Liberty, itself renowned for its championing of contemporary furniture, will pay tribute to Knoll by hosting a retrospective show of some of its key designer pieces from the past to the present, from Mies van der Rohe’s iconic Barcelona® chair to Ross Lovegrove’s Sprite Stacking chair.”
