Florence Knoll’s name is synonymous with classic, iconic design that ranges from credenzas to modern-day workplace solutions.  Denver Design Week celebrates her 100th birthday with this session exploring the history of Florence and the Knoll brand alongside a robust conversation about the state of women in Colorado Design.

A panel of women architects and interior designers, who continue to make their mark on Colorado’s design culture, will discuss where it is, where it is going and what could be focused on to make it better.

We’ll also have cocktails, cake and ice cream to celebrate Florence Knoll’s birthday and celebrate Denver Design Week.

Cocktails from Bear Creek Distillery, bites from Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox, Salted Caramel Banana Pudding from Post Oak Hall  beer from Renegade and beverages from Blume Honey Water
