Part 2 of a series of photos I will be posting (via Knoll) leading up to Fathers Day, which takes a more intimate look at the life of these design icons.
Also, if you happen to be in New York this Thursday June 13th, don't miss the grand opening of Knoll's first ever retail showroom, Knoll Home Design Shop, at 1330 Avenue of the Americas (at 54th Street). Richard Schultz will be present and signing every Petal end table sold.
Special thanks to Elizabeth Mallory and Sarah McLellan.
