‘THIS IS KNOLL’


Once again this year, Knoll has called on OMA, the studio co-founded by the Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas, to design and install the firm’s stand at the Salone del Mobile. The space has been created to adapt to the flow of visitors, thanks to the unique choice of using mobile partitions to put this idea into practice. The walls of the main diagonal slide, making it possible to divide the stand into two separate sections, or to keep the area as open as possible.
OMA has chosen different materials that reinforce the concept of heterogeneity and create perfect backdrops for the products of the Knoll collection: soft and solid, organic and synthetic, transparent and opaque.

The “Architectural Glass Panels” by Sabine Marcelis represent a true experiment, combining glass, metal and touches of color to create architectural panels that act as spatial dividers or theatrical wings. OMA asked the designer to create a custom project for “This is Knoll” at the Salone del Mobile 2016. The work completes the theatrical choreography invented by OMA, bringing out its playful, unconventional side. A sign, a color, a material.
