The Life-Changing Magic of “Knolling”

2 of 4

The term "knolling" refers to the act of arranging objects at right angles to each other or the surface they rest on. Sculptor Andrew Kromelow coined the name in 1987 while working as a janitor in Frank Gehry’s studio; artist Tom Sachs, who also worked in Gehry’s studio at the time, popularized the organizational concept.
