Krefeld Sofa by Knoll designed by Mies van der Rohe
The Krefeld Sofa sprung from the mind and drawing board of legendary modernist designer and architect Mies van der Rohe. While designing the homes of the Esters and Langes in Germany, Mies van der Rohe was inspired to create beautiful furniture for the rooms. The Krefeld Collection, with help from the Museum of Modern Art in New York, was born. The Krefeld Collection now holds a rightful place at the front of the class when it comes to modernist design. Beautifully proportioned, plainly beautiful, comfortable and stylish, the Krefeld Sofa is unsurpassed.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Without question, one of the most significant designers of the modern era. Born in Germany in 1886, van der Rohe began a career in architecture and interior in an era that challenged traditional concepts of aesthetics and design. Rejected classical, cluttered notions of beauty, he was a proponent of clean, efficient lines expressed using industrial materials. This design movement gained ground after World War I, but Mies van der Rohe was forced to move to the United States in 1937 due to political pressure from the Nazis, who rejected his new ideas on art and architecture.
He took a position as head of architecture in Chicago at the Armour Institute of Technology, now known as the Illinois Institute of Technology. His career in the United States spanned 30 years and saw him create numerous standout buildings in the Chicago area. He is perhaps best remembered today for his inspiring furniture designs.
Founded in 1938, Knoll has nurtured many of the most inspiring and iconic furniture designs of the last century. With an extensive collection of modern classic furniture for the home as well as cutting-edge office furniture with a focus on functionality as well as aesthetics, Knoll is at the forefront of how furniture interacts with us and affects us in our daily lives.
