Details

Maya Lin’s collection of Stones, introduced in 1998 in celebration of Knoll’s 60th anniversary, reflects the famed architect’s signature subtlety. The quiet, organic form of the Coffee Table brings a grounding quality to any space—indoors or out.

Maya Lin: “Before I began designing a single piece of this line, I did a significant amount of research and realized that the furniture with which we are familiar is derived primarily from a Western European tradition. My husband collects pre-Columbian art, and has several stone metate, ancient thrones which have slightly concave tops; he also has some porcelain pillows from China. These non-Western objects struck me as profoundly beautiful, and they became the inspiration for my designs.

"At the heart of this furniture collection for Knoll is my love for the land, which can be traced back to my childhood in the rolling hills of southeastern Ohio. It goes back to a childhood fascination we all have—that moment when you discover that the earth is round…and you walk around trying to see that curve.

"In the Knoll furniture, as in everything else I create, I am trying to engage the viewer, to get their attention. It is my way of gently encouraging people to see the world in a different light… It is very important for me, as both a sculptor and designer, that the collection walks a line between art and design, that it plays the middle ground. This way of working follows the legacy of Knoll and its roots in the Bauhaus — which really did combine and cross borders."

Maya Lin

US, 1959

Maya Lin received her Master of Architecture from Yale University in 1986, and has maintained a professional studio in New York City since then. Maya Lin has maintained a careful balance between art and architecture throughout her career, creating a remarkable body of work that includes large-scale site-specific installations, intimate studio artworks, architectural works and memorials.

Landscape is the context and the source of inspiration for Ms. Lin's art. She peers curiously at the landscape through a twenty-first century lens, merging rational and technological order with notions of beauty and the transcendental. Utilizing technological methods to study and visualize the natural world, Ms. Lin takes micro and macro views of the earth, sonar resonance scans, aerial and satellite mapping devices and translates that information into sculptures, drawings and environmental installations. Her works address how we relate and respond to the environment, and presents new ways of looking at the world around us.
