Join SAH/SCC as we welcome Dr. Ana Arujo to talk about her new book,No Compromise: The Work of Florence Knoll(Princeton Architectural Press, 2021). Florence Knoll Bassett (1917-2019) was a leading force of modern design. From 1943-1965, she worked at what became Knoll International. She and her first husband, Hans Knoll, were business partners. After his passing, she became design director.

Knoll invented the visual language of the modern office through her groundbreaking interiors and the “Knoll look,” which has become a classic interior design style. Her commissions became hallmarks of the modern era, including the Womb and Tulip chairs by Eero Saarinen, the Diamond Chair by Harry Bertoia, and the Platner Collection by Warren Platner.

The book, named after Knolls motto, “No compromise, ever” explores her fascinating career and the legacy her work has left on design and the modern movement.

Ana Araujo, PhD, is an architect, teacher and researcher. She has led design studio at the Architectural Association in London from 2010 to 2021 and is now on a sabbatical year. Araujo has lectured and published internationally.
