In 1940 Hans Knoll founded the company that bears his name, which quickly earned a reputation for its progressive line of furniture. Florence Schust joined the firm and helped establish its interior design division, the Knoll Planning Unit, and in 1947, the year after their marriage, Hans and Florence added a third division, Knoll Textiles, bringing fabric production in line with a modern sensibility that used color and texture as primary design elements. With essays by design experts, profiles of some 80 designers, and some 400 photos and images of textiles, drawings, furniture, and ephemera, this handsomely produced monograph traces the firm's evolution in the context of modern textile design.
