Modernism in design was born as a means toward social good. It rejected frivolous ornamentation, privileged functionality and envisioned a world in which technology could transform society for the better. Hans and Florence Knoll and their many collaborators inaugurated a new era of integrated design based on principles that remain vital today. We are what we know, and what we do, as much as what we make.
