Knoll Los Angeles Showroom & Offices
Located on the 29th floor of The Gas Company Tower, Knoll Los Angeles exemplifies contemporary workspace design while paying tribute to the iconic brand’s history and the panoramic views of downtown Los Angeles. ARO has also designed Knoll offices and showrooms in Washington, D.C., Houston, San Francisco, and Philadelphia.
The project offers flexible open office layouts with informal meeting areas and includes traditional concepts of private offices and a formal board room. This interior evolves design elements from our original Knoll New York flagship, translating the material palette in response to the southern California location. Neutral pink finishes in stone, lacquer, terrazzo, felt and textile refer to the beach climate; wood flooring adds warmth to the interior; and, supergraphics reference film stills from Hollywood classics.
Like previous showrooms, the Los Angeles space is organized by a sculptural brass rail that displays a changing selection of Knoll textiles. Utilitarian spaces such as the pantry, copy, and server room form the center of the floor plan, while the showroom, conference, and office spaces have access to natural light and expansive views of the Los Angeles skyline. Knoll textiles – including The ARO Collection – are integrated throughout the interior as architectural finishes, creating materially rich spaces and displays of furniture and fabrics, while also providing a testing lab for new product applications.
The project is certified LEED Gold and WELL.
