klismos by Knoll


In ancient Greece, Klismos was the name of a type of chair found in images of ancient furniture painted on pottery. 

Antonio Citterio drew on these images to design and name this seating collection — sofa, bench, and chaise lounge — for Knoll, well in line with the brand’s tradition of classic design.

The seats and backs are in natural cotton cord woven on an oak wood structure, crafted from natural, sustainable materials. The finish can be in either natural or black oak.  And leather cushions can be added to the seat for greater comfort. 

The sofa develops the design of the chairs in a symmetrical, dynamic and welcoming form, reminiscent of the classic recamier. Citterio brings classical values from different epochs to contemporary design.
