Workplace furnishings of modernist design have been this high-end retailer's sole focus for more than 70 years. From its downtown location in an historic former bank building, Knoll's Miami showroom reflects the aesthetic of its furnishings: sleek, colorful pieces occupy a light-drenched open space punctuated by textured fabrics and brightly hued wall panels. Kroll produces cutting-edge chairs, desks, files, and other workplace pieces that frequently find their way into modern art museums. (More than 40 Kroll pieces are in permanent residence in the NYC Museum of Modern Art's design collection.)
