For the avoidance of doubt and to ensure that we are completely open and honest with our customers, we would like to make the following points:
  1. Scott Howard has never been an authorised distributor of Knoll products.
  2. As we currently hold stocks of genuine vintage Knoll chairs at our UK warehouse, we are happy to offer these pre-used products for sale.

Having made these points, Scott Howard is more than happy to recommend pre-used Knoll products to all of our customers, as we hold the company in the highest regard and are happy to sell any vintage pre-used examples of their products we can source.

Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe (1886-1969)

Mies van der Rohe

Born in Germany and trained in the family stonemasonry business, the architecture and design of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe became iconic of the cool, minimalist international style from the first half of the century.

A member of the "Novembergruppe," an organization intent on expanding the scope and impact of modernism, Mies spent the first part of the 1920s designing buildings in this style. In 1927 the design and patent for his tubular steel cantilevered chair started to bring him into the international spotlight.

The most famous of his pieces is the 'Barcelona' chair; the outward appearance replaced the cosy qualities of a large upholstered armchair with a smaller and more streamlined chair.

Mies van der Rohe was director of the Bauhaus school in Berlin from 1930-32, and moved to Chicago in 1938, where he taught architecture at the Armour Institute. He designed the Seagram Building in New York (1962-67), a glass and steel building infused with the same affinity for balance and sleek visual form as his furniture.
