Lounge Chair, Model no. 92,designed by Pierre Jeanneret
Hans and Florence Knoll saw the chair while touring Europe and licensed the design for Knoll Associates, introducing it as Model 92 in 1948. It was listed in the 1950 Knoll catalogue and later became known as the Scissors chair. Simple leather-covered pads for the back and seat rest against a webbed wood frame. The popular chair was used in many midcentury minimalist interiors, including those designed by Florence Knoll, and two of the chairs were featured in her installation for An Exhibition for Modern Living at the Detroit Institute of Arts in 1949.
