The retrospective exhibition Knoll au Louvre "was a collaborative effort across continents, organized on-the-ground by Yves Vidal, President of Knoll Europe, in Paris, but conceived by Massimo and Lella Vignelli and Knoll associates in New York" (Knoll.com). The need for an innovative approach to exhibition layout in a challenging architectural space (the Pavilion de Marsan) resulted in the "Plexicube," their main mode of display for the show. All of the Knoll designs were enclosed in these 8-foot hight glass boxes.
This is the smaller version.
