Knoll Oral History Project Describes Life at Cranbrook

Atlanta Magazine featured an excerpt from a Knoll oral history project undertaken by the Atlanta-based nonprofit Art Papers. In it, several Cranbrook Academy of Art alumni are featured, along with Knoll’s experience at Cranbrook. She says, “…at Cranbrook [Academy of Art]. There were many people there; it was a fantastic group. Charlie Eames was there, Eero [Saarinen] and people like Ed Bacon, who was a fantastic city planner of Philadelphia; Harry Weese, an excellent architect from Chicago; Ben Baldwin, an excellent interior planner. It was a diverse and very interesting group. Harry Bertoia was there. He came as a silversmith. He gradually got involved, as everyone did at Cranbrook, in all forms of design.”
