Knoll Associates, Inc., 1950. First Edition. Spiral-bound quarto. Comprehensive catalogue of Knoll's mid-century modern designs. Designed by Herbert Matter, the catalogue is organized into six chapters devoted to "Chairs", "Tables", "Chests, Cabinets, Beds", "Desks, Offices", and "Textiles". Each chapter includes comprehensive black and white photography of the furniture, both isolated and in-situ. Matter's simple yet innovative graphic design is displayed throughout; for example the chapters are divided by a different cardstock, chosen to evoke some element of the materiality that follows. Designers included are Franco Albini, Hans Bellman, Bonet, Kurchan and Hardoy, Pierre Jeanneret, Florence Knoll, Donald Knorr, Mies van der Rohe, George Nakashima, Isamu Noguchi, Eero Saarinen, Abel Sorensen, Richard Stein, Elias Svedberg, Jean Bauret, Michela Bronzini, Dorothy Cole, Eszter Haraszty, Stig Lindberg, Franz lorenz, Noemi Raymond, Astrid Sampe, Marianne Strengell, Angelo Testa, Harry Bertoia, Charles Niedinghaus, and Murray Rothenberg. Additional photographer credits are extended to Hockaday Associates, Erza Stoller and (Robert) Damora. Some light offsetting on the cardstock chapter dividers, small bump evident at base of spiral binding, light wear to edges and corners; a near fine example of a fragile book.
