Furthermore, Lissoni designed the Avio Sofa System which is also on display with new enhancements, namely an innovative system of upholstered furniture with a relaxed and informal style, and Matrioska, a system of open and closed containers of varying geometries, where light and shadow confer lightness and simplicity to the volumes.

“I imagined that Avio could move, responding to the user’s wish for convenience and sociability. For this, I designed a mechanism that is hidden but at the same time appealing, like the detailing of certain motorbikes, and most importantly very easy to use.” – Piero Lissoni

 “Matrioska is a cabinet (credenza) conceived as a container made to house other containers that house things to contain. Each part is visible and reveals its structure in relation to the others, along with its function which is to accommodate and organize.  I thought of it as an open and minimal house with forms one inside the other, a sequence of empty and full spaces. A kind of rulebook of shapes, proportions and dimensions that narrate the way the space can be organized through an orchestration of colors and materials – marble, wood, lacquer and glass.”

The goal of our innovation is always timelessness and adaptability – rejecting short-term trends and anticipating the inevitability of change. Our task is to ensure that Knoll remains vital and synonymous with good design for generations to come.” – Andrew Cogan, CEO of Knoll, Inc.
