Sandis presents a dark, romantic
exterior—this striking wood grain
pattern is inspired by a design from
the Spring 2008 Runway Collection
by Proenza Schouler. Sandis was
among five upholstery fabrics from
Knoll Textiles that were added to the
Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, National
Design Museum's permanent collection
for its innovative quality combined with
its contemporary significance.
Whip upholstery pairs the softness and grain of fine leather with high durability
and a saturated color palette. This polyurethane fabric combines resilience with
cleanability and is both stain- and water-resistant, making it an excellent choice
for high-traffic areas.
Some brands need no formal introductions and Knoll Textiles is among the elite names that have established a legacy of producing nearly instant design classics. The iconic textile manufacturer has been
churning out innovative, high-quality designs since it began weaving fabrics
for commercial interiors back in 1947 with Florence Knoll’s unexpected
adaptation of simple menswear fabric for furniture application—signaling
the birth of commercial textiles.
Under the direction of Creative Director Dorothy Cosonas, Knoll Textiles has
maintained its commitment to state-of-the-art manufacturing and material
development while fostering design collaborations and expanding into new
product categories. The manufacturer consistently introduces products in
clear colors and, at times, reinvents what comes next for interiors with
fresh color combinations. From the outset, Knoll Textiles’ objective has been
to lead with simple, timeless designs, and it continues to combine beauty
and function in the modernist tradition.
Here, interiors+sources selected an assortment of Knoll Textiles at a range
of price points that make classic designs available for virtually any budget.
