AIA Miami to Host Florence Knoll Tribute

For Women’s History Month, AIA Miami will hold a panel honoring the life of the designer.

Passionate about architecture and design from an early age, Florence Knoll pioneered “total design” in the post-war corporate interiors of America. She became a leading figure in an industry dominated by men through her work with Knoll and the Planning Unit, trailblazing the way not only for American Modernism, but for women in design as well.

For Women’s History Month, the Women in Architecture Committee of the AIA Miami Chapter will host Women’s History Month: A Tribute to Florence Knoll at the Knoll Miami Showroom. The event will feature a panel discussion on the extraordinary life and legacy of the pioneering designer, highlighting how her work transformed the world of design and workplace interiors. Panelists for the tribute, who will share personal stories from their experiences with Florence Knoll, are Beth Dunlap, a writer and editor; Jim Lutz, Vice President of Sales, KnollStudio; and Paul Makovsky, Editor-in-Chief of Contract magazine.

Women’s History Month: A Tribute to Florence Knoll will take place on Wednesday, March 20th from 6-8 pm at the Knoll Miami Showroom (200 South Biscayne Boulevard, Suite 1700, Miami, FL 33131). The event is a partnership between AIA Miami, Knoll, CDI Workplace Solutions, Miami Center for Architecture & Design and IIDA South Florida Chapter.Tickets may be purchased through AIA Miami here.
