A brief history of Walter Knoll

Walter Knoll has built its reputation for quality craftsmanship, eye-catching design and unrivalled build quality for over 150 years. With a reputation for modernity, it is no mean feat to continue innovating for more than a century. But that is precisely what this company has managed to do since it first began its life as a leather business in Stuttgart, Germany.

Over the decades following the company’s inception, the style of Walter Knoll furniture developed and grew to suit the mood of the time. During the 1920s, for example, Walter Knoll furniture took a somewhat futuristic turn, leaving behind the heavy, traditional furniture of the Victorian and Edwardian eras in favour of lighter structures with wooden, aluminium and tubular steel legs that captured the sophistication and modern style that was so prominent in this period. Upright, straight backed chairs were eschewed for comfortable, relaxed and casual pieces and the Walter Knoll name sealed its reputation as a furniture brand that represented comfort as well as elegance.

The Walter Knoll bucket chair, first introduced during the 1950s, is still an iconic feature of many office reception areas and hotel lobbies today, while the FK executive chair is a classic of any 1970s office environment.

The hallmarks of Walter Knoll furniture

The Walter Knoll brand is epitomised by style, comfort and a futuristic retro look that remains popular in the present day.

Exquisitely stitched leather upholstery is a key feature of Walter Knoll chairs and sofas, but colours range from classic browns and blacks to eye-catching blues and yellows, making them a striking feature of any room.

Simple lines and elegant shapes set Walter Knoll furniture apart, while the chairs often feature the wooden, steel tubing or lightweight aluminium legs that mark them out as truly special.
