Knice Stair

Last year Knoll moved from Chelsea to Midtown, having been booted out of the historic full-block Port Authority building that Google bought in 2010 for nearly $2 billion. Its new location should give the furniture company more exposure, since they now have a storefront presence on Sixth Avenue between 53rd and 54th Streets, not to mention space on three more floors above. The award-winning showroom, offices and store are designed by Architecture Research Office (ARO), and a highlight of their design is a staircase covered in wool felt that connects the showroom and the main office level. Fittingly, the felt is Knoll's signature orange.
