  • Miami, FL (1888PressRelease) July 11, 2013 - Circle Art at Home, a modern and contemporary inspired furniture and home accessories gallery in South Beach, has been named the exclusive Miami Beach retailer for Knoll home and office furniture, announced Jesse Brody, founder of Circle Art at Home. For more than 75 years, Knoll has been recognized throughout the world as a design leader and innovator that has remained true to the Bauhaus design philosophy that modern furniture should complement architectural space, not compete with it.

    "Being able to add Knoll to our portfolio is truly exciting and I've wanted them in the store for years," Brody said. "I recently attended the furniture show in Milan, and Knoll's new 'Tools for Life' collection blurs the boundary between home and office furniture to focus on the way we work. The pieces are retro, contemporary and futuristic all at once. Today, as South Floridians, we work anywhere and this new collection addresses that by focusing on how we work, not where."

    Echoing that sentiment was Knoll CEO Andrew Cogan at the launch of the "Tools for Life" collection. In recognizing the disintegration of work- and home-specific spaces, Cogan was quoted as saying the "categories are becoming increasingly meaningless. To blur this line in the collection shows a bit of our intent in our direction over the next 75 years."

    Knoll has a rich heritage of working with the top design minds in the world. The new "Tools for Life" collection was created in partnership with Rem Koolhaas, the Dutch architect behind OMA, which is also one of the design teams vying to redevelop the Miami Beach Convention Center.

    Landmark collaborations with architects and designers have also resulted in such iconic design as Dining Tables and the Tulip Collection by Eero Saarinen; the Barcelona Collection by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe; the Bertoia Collection by Harry Bertoia; and the Wassily Chair by Marcel Breuer.

    Founded in 1938 by Hans Knoll and continued after his death by his wife Florence Knoll, Knoll has produced a long line of award-winning and museum worthy designs. Knoll products are exhibited in major art museums spanning the globe and more than 40 pieces are in the permanent Design Collection of The Museum of Modern Art in New York.

    Circle Art at Home is open Monday-Friday from 11:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. and Saturday from noon - 7:00 p.m. The store is located at 1560 Lenox Avenue, Suite 101, in Miami Beach.
