Created in 2013 the KNOCKOUT collection features some of the first designs from FRIENDS & FOUNDERS. The pieces have become symbolic of the brand and are representative of designer Ida Hildebrand’s geometric, architectural, and sculptural influences. This award-winning collection has gained attention for its contemporary and minimalistic architectural profile, one that breaks with tradition.
The KNOCKOUT tables are attractive both as stand-alones or in clustered groups. Each could hold a favourite item – a teacup, book, tablet. In fact the theme of the collection is accentuating personal moments. The KNOCKOUT collection suits many spaces and fits well in both public and residential contexts. The pieces are appropriate for a range of building architectures whether historic, mid-century or contemporary.
THE KNOCKOUT COLLECTION SHOWCASES A GEOMETRIC PERFORMANCE. BALANCED BY ITS SOLID GEOMETRICAL ACT, THE OBJECTS HAVE A NATURAL, BASIC, YET OBVIOUS APPEARANCE THAT CATCHES THE EYE.
The KNOCKOUT COLLECTION is manufactured in Europe where the tradition for marble craft is strong. Our selected marble is untreated and leaves a honed, matte, silky finish that is exquisite to the touch. The table top is made from solid aluminium and so is also suitable for outdoor spaces. The collection features a custom coating that makes the furniture extremely durable as in all Friends & Founders metal and outdoor products. The powder coatings are UV-resistant so they are suitable for sunny environments. A matte and slightly granulated surface-finish gives the collection a sophisticated feel and appearance. The coating has a slight sparkling of minerals that gives the surface more depth and makes the feel softer.
