Barker Street presents Knoll Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2024

Honouring the past whilst looking to the future, Knoll’s pavilion at the recent Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2024 presented new and re-defined ideas for contemporary ways of life.

Designed by Belgian architecture firm, Office, and constructed from repurposed and recycled materials, the pavilion envisioned residential life through a sequence of intimate spaces and flower gardens and housed a variety of home products, including items from the brand’s recent collaboration with cultural polymath Willo Perron.

Stand-out pieces on exhibit included the Perron Pillo Sofa by Willo Perron, the latest in the Knoll tradition of contemporary designer collaborations, a reissue of the Tugendhat Chair by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, as well as the Wassily Chair, Laccio Tables and Cesca Chairs and Stools by Marcel Breuer, and the MR Chairs and Tables by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in three new ultra-matte finishes.

Commenting on the new collaboration piece, Knoll said: “The Perron Pillo Sofa translates the designer’s distinct perspective to an unexpected form – seemingly, a stack of oversized pillows – that offers unforgettable comfort.

“Pillo evokes an all-encompassing comfort that feels easy and familiar. With deep seats designed to be sat in, not on, the sofa serves as a refuge, inviting you to jump in, curl up, and relax. Pillo’s components can be combined and reconfigured in countless ways and its simple construction welcomes a variety of textiles —a showcase for the customer’s creativity.”
