Frequently cited as a benchmark of modern cross-national design, Maya Lin's work draws influence from Japanese gardens, American Indian earthen mounds, her parents and her architectural design training at Yale University. While studying there as a senior, Lin won a nationwide contest for her controversial design of the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial. Her career has been marked by her memorials, public spaces and keen sense of simple, elegant beauty. These elements are gracefully displayed in her work for Knoll, which includes outdoor seating stones, a chaise lounge and side chair. In 2003, Maya Lin won the Finn Juhl award for good design.
While still an undergraduate at Yale University, Maya Lin came to international prominence with her award-winning design for the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in Washington, D.C. Her Stones Collection, which blurs the boundaries between architecture and art, demonstrates a passion for topography, celestial elements and natural phenomena, and a fondness for elliptical shapes and subtle curves.The Design Maya Lin's first collection of Stones, designed in celebration of Knoll's 60th anniversary, includes this coffee table and both an adult and child sized seat. 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, says Lin. 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. This Stones Coffee Table reflects Maya Lin's fascination with the relationship between human beings and nature through elegant, poignant forms, arcing curves and the use of natural, recycled and living materials. It is available in a range of colors and materials, including cast stone and molded polyethylene, and features a slightly convex top.Features:
