Original letter from Knoll from D.H. South (Textile Administrator). “The Knoll approach to materiality begins with one of the most ubiquitous symbols of interior design: the fabric swatch. Florence Knoll invented it. Other companies offered swatches, but Florence—who was trained as an architect—knew the importance of understanding materials. Shortly after she and Hans established Knoll Textiles in 1947, Knoll became the first company to mount squares of fabric to identification cards packed with information interior designers need while working on projects. Our evolutionary and revolutionary use of materials started with Florence and continues today.” - Knoll. Dimensions: 9”h x 8.75”w x 4”d (box dimensions). Provenance: From the personal collection of designer Ralph Rye – a multi-talented visionary with a career in city planning, architecture, interior design, lighting, and furniture design. Rye has collaborated with some of the finest furniture companies in America including Dunbar, Nessen, Thonet, Jens Risom, and Baker.
