This is is your first furniture collection. Did you approach designing the pieces in the same way you do for architectural projects?
I explored a number of themes in the Knoll furniture—such as monumentality, materiality and history—which are also evident in my architectural projects. So the formal language is shared with some of the buildings I am currently working on. There is a common line of inquiry.
The aluminum Wahshington Skeleton Chair (shown above) is available in four different finishes. Its lattice pattern is reminiscent of Adjaye's design for the National Museum of African American History and Culture's facade. Photo by: Josh McHugh
