Slipper chair designed in 1955 by Florence Knoll and produced by Knoll International. Model No. 65, produced from 1955-1973. We bought this chair directly from the family who bought it in 1956. Still all original condition! The chair does still look great, but the foam is not resilient anymore. There is also a pinhole in the fabric at the rear as pictured. Reupholstery is therefore strongly recommended.
This chair came with a matching 2-seater sofa with arms we also have in store. The upholstery of the sofa is worn and scheduled to be fully restored by our upholsterers.

Her iconic designs, such as the Florence Knoll Sofa, remain timeless classics, embodying elegance and practicality. Her influential contributions continue to resonate, making her a true icon in the world of design.
