KNOLL ASSOCIATES, INC.
Knoll Box of Textile Swatches
New York, Knoll Associates, Inc.. This is a very good cardboard container with 332 textile samples produced by Knoll during the late 1950's. The box itself, like other Knoll advertising and promotional work from this period, was designed by Herbert Matter. The design is a geometric pattern in blue, black and white (see photograph). The box is in reasonable condition: the top of the box shows the colorful design clearly and has just a few tiny abrasions. The sides are also printed with the same blue, black and white pattern. There are various small defects to the edges and corners, which are rubbed, or show wear. Also at some time there was tape was used to secure the sides to the bottom of the box, these applications have left some residue to the sides. The textile samples themselves are all in very good condition. The individual white printed cards with the Knoll logo and "320 Park Avenue" address, each have swatches of original textiles stapled to them. The cards do not identify the individual designers, but carry the name of the textile design, its' Knoll number, the fiber it is made of, the size of the roll it is produced in, and the finish. A wide range of textile designs is represented in this collection. The colors include solids and plaids, and more complex weaves. The variety of colors includes blacks, grays, tans, beiges, cream-colors, sand, yellows, greens, blues, reds and purples. The box bears the title "Textile Swatches" and the company name "Knoll Associates, Inc." and was most probably issued to retailers of Knoll products to help customers select fabrics for their Knoll furniture. This is a unique and invaluable resource for an institution or a collector. The box is 11.5" square X 3.5" high. Call or write for more details and photographs. This item will be securely packed in a sturdy box and shipped with tracking and insurance. Very Good.
