For 2020 Knoll presents Matic, an innovative system of sofa components created by Piero Lissoni and conceived as a platform suspended in space, somewhere between an island and a work of architecture. The distinctive characteristics, here again, are aesthetics and technology. Low, linear seats, enhanced by capitonné details, are joined by armrests and backs that can be shaped thanks to an internal mechanism offering structural support and comfort. The cushions complete the collection, guaranteeing absolute ease during use. Timeless aesthetic details of lightness and elegance meet with precise workmanship at the highest levels of technology and quality.
Piero Lissoni has a wide-ranging practice including product design, graphic design, interior design, architectural and industrial design. Born in 1956 in Italy he studied architecture at the Polytechnic of Milan in collaboration with the University of Barcelona, before founding his own studio in 1984.
Knoll products are defined by a distinct modern sensibility. From classics by the likes of Mies van der Rohe to ground-breaking designs by contemporary creatives including Marc Newson, David Adjaye, Barber Osgerby and Rem Koolhaas.
