Anni Albers, Eclat, 1974

When Florence Knoll decided to design and produce textiles in-house through a new subsidiary, Knoll Textiles, she turned among others to textile designer Anni Albers, who like Matter had been affiliated with the Bauhaus prior to her emigration to the United States. In the textile field in particular European connections remained vital, and the company retained suppliers and artists in Scandinavia, Italy, France, and Germany among other places.
