Gould Sofa

Design by Piero Lissoni, 2019 

On the occasion of the 15th year of collaboration with the architect Piero Lissoni, Knoll presents Gould, a collection of upholstered furnitures based on a more relaxed, informal way of sitting, in a spirit of classic-contemporary taste, relying on ample proportions and large cushions to ensure extraordinary comfort. 



Accommodating with its more accentuated depth, Gould becomes a gathering place, a perfect synthesis of design and classicism, ready for insertion in modern spaces with a minimal-chic tone, refined and informal at the same time, in tune with the natural desire for relaxation. 


Gould is a large, extra large and extra-extra large sofa, where the panels of the support structure can be covered in fabric or produced with a chestnut wood finish. 


Polyurethane foam panels upholstered in fabric and leather or chestnut wood panels. The panels are fixed to the seat structure. The painted metal seat frame has double layer straps.

Product Story 

Piero Lissoni’s goal was to simplify the traditional idea of the sofa, which is often the result of a complex construction. At the same time, however, he did not want to overlook the high quality standards of Knoll requires of every designer, in every project.

In perfect Knoll style, to create a comfortable and elegant product, Lissoni has come up with a sofa whose design sums up and explains its genesis, full of technological and sartorial content, reflecting the research and craftsmanship that have always been key factors in the company’s genetic code. Relaxing on a Gould sofa, one immediately has a pleasant sensation of comfort thanks to the padding of the cushions, in down or polyurethane/wadding. A series of decor cushions, with very precise design that leaves no geometric figure to chance.

A balanced game of geometric lines and volumes, replicated for a new line of furniture that has the ambition of becoming a new classic, easy to insert in any setting, from private homes to contract applications.  

Gould Sofa will soon be avaialable in our e-store.
