Propeller Credenza (1990s)
Made by Knoll
This is a pair of Propeller Credenzas in Birdseye Maple, designed by Emanuela Frattini for Knoll in 1994. The listed price includes one credenza, and we have two available for purchase. Their design features a steel frame, aluminum details, and a burled Birdseye Maple veneer. They have aluminum drawer pulls emblazoned with the Knoll logo, and the two top drawers have locks. They were likely a custom order commissioned shortly after production began circa 1994, and the burled Birdseye Maple facade is seldom seen.
The propeller series dates to a time when Knoll was exploring new postmodern forms for both office and home. Emanuela Frattini is the daughter of designer and architect Gianfranco Frattini, and both have had illustrious careers in design.
Each cabinet measures 20 inches deep, 36.5 inches wide, and is 29 inches tall. The credenzas show some light wear from use and are in very good condition. Please see photos.
