Looking for some classic design at knockdown prices? You need to make your way to the KnollStudio Sample Sale at the showroom in Smithfield, London.
It takes place on Saturday, 6th December 2008, running from 10am until 1pm. Not much of a clue as to what will be available, but as Knoll is the sole licensed manufacturer of the likes of the Barcelona Chair, Wassily Chair and the Saarinen Tulip and Bertoia Collections, you could have some iconic pieces of furniture at ‘greatly reduced prices’ by Christmas. The only difference is that these are ex display and photoshoot samples, so if you can deal with a few fingerprints, get in there.
And if you get in there early enough, you could pick up the ‘star buy’ of a Black Leather Barcelona Chair for £750 – well worth missing a couple of hours sleep for.
