The Walter Knoll brand has one of the longest histories in the furniture industry, with a century and a half of heritage behind it. Wilhelm Knoll established the brand in the 19th century and founded a dynasty which is still in existence today. Although the original focus of Walter Knoll furniture was on leather chairs, the range grew and developed over the decades that followed to embrace a wide range of designs. The 1912 Nestra chair paved the way for modern pieces thanks to its wooden frame and its half-backed back rest which extended over the armrests. Subsequently, the 1920s saw a move towards lower lying upholstered chairs that featured the popular steel tubing, aluminium or wooden bases of the time. Upright seats slowly morphed into more casual, relaxed positions, and Walter Knoll chairs became famous for their comfort and modern elegance. During the 1950s, their bucket chair set a trend and by the time the 1970s came round, the FK chair was the ultimate choice for executives of the day. Walter Knoll furniture is still thriving today and the brand name remains a byword for high quality German engineered furniture.
