Notes from the Archive: "Less is more" has never been more beautifully stated. This iconic couch was made even more famous by it's use in Philip Johnson's well-published New York apartment in the 50's. This offers an opportunity to acquire an important design manufactured by Knoll to the original and exacting specification of the designer. This design won a 1977 award from the Museum of Art and is included in many international museums collections.
