This exclusive new collection was designed by renowned London-based architect, David Adjaye. The Washington Collection for Knoll consists of seating that transforms David Adjaye's architectural and sculptural vision into accessible objects for the home and office.
The two cantilevered chairs - Washington Skeleton™ and Washington Skin™ - establish a play between propping and balancing, so that they are simultaneously functional and sculptural. Like complementary inversions of each other, the aluminium chair is reduced to a fine geometric lattice, while the nylon chair offers a colorful envelope of the same form.
The Washington Skin™ nylon chair is an injection molded, glass reinforced nylon cantilevered chair. The chair's shell and legs are cast in three parts and are connected using mortise and tenon joinery and stainless steel fasteners. The unique leg design is reinforced internally with a cast aluminum brace that is over-molded with nylon. The chair features four integral glides that elevate and protect the leg profile. The chair is available in several UV stable colors.
The Washington Skeleton™ aluminium chair is constructed from die-cast aluminium. The chair's shell and legs are cast in three parts and are connected using mortise and tenon joinery and stainless steel fasteners. The chair features four nylon glides and is available in several ultra-durable paint finishes or copper plated; a finish that will patina with age. All chairs are for indoor use.
