By creating the revolutionary Knoll Planning Unit, Florence Knoll set the standards for modern interiors in postwar American societies. 

Drawing on her architectural background, she introduced modern notions of efficiency, spatial planning and overall office planning design. 
Florence ardently argued that she did not simply decorate the space. But she created it. 

The planning unit rigorously researched and interviewed each client, assessing their needs, defining their usage patterns and understanding corporate hierarchies, before presenting an overall design, informed by the principles of modernism and beautifully executed. by the signature Knoll style. 

Florence and the planning unit were responsible for the interiors of some of America's largest corporations, including IBM, GM, and CBS.

As part of her work Florence frequently contributed to the design of furniture for the Knoll catalog. 
His contributions for Knoll are immeasurable.
