Fine art and inter­na­tion­al fash­ion are pow­er­ful influ­ences for artist and design­er Dorothy Cosonas, the for­mer Cre­ative Direc­tor for Knoll­Tex­tiles and Knol­l­Luxe. A fine arts and tex­tile design grad­u­ate from FIT, Cosonas worked for 21 years as Design Direc­tor for tex­tile design­er Sina Pearson’s Uni­ka Vaev. In 2005, she was named the 11th and final Cre­ative Direc­tor of Knoll­Tex­tiles, respon­si­ble for the design and devel­op­ment of all col­lec­tions for over 16 years until the merg­er of Miller­Knoll. In addi­tion to col­lab­o­rat­ing with a host of inter­na­tion­al design­ers, Cosonas also con­tributed her own work to Knol­l­Luxe. In 2016, she received the IIDA Titan Award for her con­tri­bu­tions to inte­ri­or design. 

Her Qui­et Riot” col­lec­tion of uphol­stery tex­tile and wall­cov­er­ing pat­terns devel­oped for Wolf-Gor­don offers Cosonas’ fresh per­spec­tive, with a focus on high per­for­mance. The sev­en prod­ucts fea­ture impact­ful col­or and inter­con­nect­ed linework, bal­anced with strong foun­da­tion­al products.
