Once again this year Knoll has called on OMA to design and install the stand at Salone del Mobile. This time, the project draws inspiration form the minimalism of Marcel Breuer, as applied in his original design for the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. Taking formal and material cues from the original space, the OMA pavilion’s focal point is a replica of the modular suspended ceiling he designed for the museum.
Beneath the signature ceiling, modular design, prefabrication and geometry give rise to a versatile, functional space. OMA has chosen different materials that reinforce the concept of variety and create perfect backdrops for the products of the Knoll collection: tactile and solid, organic and artificial.
