Casements with more structural interest


As glass-walled office buildings proliferated in the mid-1950s, Knoll’s collection of casement fabrics, as a category distinct from draperies, expanded rapidly. Casements are defined as open-weave or sheer fabrics which filter light without blocking it. Fishnet and Minnow were early experiments, both being literal translations of simple net structures.
