WALTER KNOLL: CRAFTMANSHIP & DESIGN

Grünbeck

30.9.–8.10.2016

Everything under one roof! For three generations, the Grünbeck furnishing house has developed from a fine cabinetmakers workshop into a center for upmarket interior architecture, international furniture design, and quality
craftsmanship. It was obvious that the house was thus the perfect place for the high-end upholstered furniture manufacturer Walter Knoll to present new handicrafts, classics, and avant-garde icons as part of the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK. During a striking upholstery show, country manager Harald Schachinger and a development specialist also illustrated how the leading furniture
manufacturing company of modernism still handcrafts the leather club chair by the Swiss architects Haussmann.
