Clear-shaped and classic armless three-seat sofa.  Manufactured by Knoll International. Florence Marguerite Knoll Basset pioneered in manufacturing modern furniture as her innovative interior decoration has had a lasting influence on contemporary interior design. She studied architecture with icons of 20th century such as Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Florence and husband Hans Knoll founded the successful, award-winning company Knoll International for which they won over designers like Eero Sarinen or Marcel Breuer. One of the most popular series of the Knoll company became the furniture series "Barcelona", designed by Mies van der Rohe for the World Expo.
