For the 55th edition of the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan, OMA designs a new pavilion for Knoll.
This is Knoll Pavilion 2016, using marble walls from Solid Nature and glass panels by Sabine Marcelis, is an asymmetrical composition of movable partitions. Combining a variety of materials - soft to solid, organic to artificial, transparent to opaque - the walls provide the background for the furniture.
The central diagonal sliding walls either separate or open the central space, adapting to the flux of people. The movement, perspective and superimposition of layered surfaces is inspired by Mies van der Rohe collages.
