The Knoll Museum, located in East Greenville, Pennsylvania, houses an unparalleled collection of no-longer-produced Knoll icons. The archival collection illustrates over fifty years of evolving tastes, technical and material innovations, and changing consumer needs, and underscores Knoll's place as a storied design leader.

Knoll is Modern Always because modern always works.
Knoll uses modern design to connect people to their work, their lives, their world. Since 1938, they have been thinking about how people interact with their environments, and how their environments impact what they do. Knoll has been recognized internationally for creating workplace and residential furnishings that inspire, evolve, and endure.
Today, their commitment to modern design, the understanding of the nature of work, and the dedication to sustainable design have yielded a unique portfolio of thoughtful products that respond and adapt to changing needs.
The Knoll museum features pieces from every era of Knoll's history. Explore 75 years of iconic Knoll design, from pioneering modernist vision to bold contemporary designs for home and office.
The museum is a place to get inspired by design stories, modern interiors and compelling conversations. Walking around one can learn about the product designers and understand the commitment to design, rooted in the relationship with these architects and designers. Knoll is a constellation of design-driven brands and people, working together with their clients to create inspired modern interiors.
Knoll asked us to make an 80-foot-long company timeline for their newly renovated museum in Greenville. We created a dense image driven timeline in two layers. Historic imagery was used as base, complimented with a superimposed second layer of colored text boxes, organized in world events (blue), corporate information (gray) and Knoll products (burgundy). World events were placed in the upper part, corporate news in the middle and products information in the lower part of the timeline.
By using 3M process color vinyl print technology, we had no limitation in color or image quality. Applied in pieces of 4 by 9 feet, as adhesive wallpaper, the vinyl is durable and color proof for a minimum of 10 years. It is a relatively easy procedure to add new additional information to the existing timeline.
Lively and well-organized. Why does a timeline need to be more than this?
The Knoll Timeline was awarded the "365: AIGA YEAR IN DESIGN 23" in the category Environmental Graphic Design.
