Cool Hunting Video: David Adjaye for Knoll

The renowned furniture brand recruits a brilliant young architect to create a fantastically structural chair

Recently, CH spoke to architect and designer David Adjaye, a rising star whose award-winning firm is working on the National Museum of African American History and Culture for the Smithsonian in Washington, DC. A thoughtful and charming individual, Adjaye has a very clear vision of his relationship with structures and design. But this was challenged when he was given the opportunity to take a break from buildings and design a collection for the furniture brand Knoll. We spoke with Adjaye about this new experience, the difference in designing furniture and the purpose of a chair.
