a brief description Florence Knoll (1917-2019) was a pivotal figure in the development of modern design. She worked at Knoll Associates from 1945 to 1965, first as a partner in business with her husband Hans Knoll, then as president after his death, and finally as design director. The Barcelona Chair by Mies van der Rohe, the Diamond Chair by Harry Bertoia, and the Platner Collection by Warren Platner are only a few of her commissions that have become modern age icons. She designed timeless pieces such as the Parallel Bar Collection, which is still in production today.
Through her innovative interiors and the development of the acclaimed “Knoll look,” which is still a staple for interior design today, Knoll invented the visual language of the modern office. She breathed new life into the International Style by making textiles, lighting, and accessories more human. Despite her slogan of “no compromise, ever,” Knoll had to make accommodations to gain respect from her colleagues, customers, and partners as a woman in a white, upper-middle-class, male-dominated world. Knoll’s remarkable career is examined with detail in No Compromise, from her student days to her professional achievements.

Designers are often faced with juggling competing design criteria, such as weight versus power, speed versus life, efficiency versus complexity, or efficiency versus cost, to name a few typical trade-off scenarios. As the designer attempts to change one parameter, the other appears to deteriorate. Near tolerance gears in a gear pump mean greater pumping efficiency but higher manufacturing cost, and so on.
Designers will usually create a device that can meet specific performance objectives, such as lifting a certain maximum load a certain distance at a certain speed. Designers are often usually capable of comprehending that users never run a device in the way that they expected. They also recognize that actual systems made of real materials may have some variance in their performance. Designers will usually define and develop to accommodate these differences. Some designers may also design a product to meet a specific factory cost goal. This is a significant accomplishment. Unfortunately, consumer standards have grown to the point that even this capability isn’t enough. Customers with more sophisticated needs are demanding predictable life-cycle costs, a guaranteed life, a guaranteed maintenance-free duration, and, in some cases, a guaranteed level of performance retention. The designer is, in general, struggling in these circumstances. Since life problems are the least well known, they are the ones that attract the least consideration in the design compromise trade-off scenario.

Many elements play an important role in design, but unless you’re sitting with a designer who can point them out, such as Benoit Tallec, you’re likely to miss out on some interesting information.
I’ve always had a keen interest in design and try to put what little experience I do have to good use while working on Project Rough. Benoit’s 1984 BMW R100RS, which he affectionately refers to as L’Intrépide (The Intrepid), is a design masterclass on the other end of the continuum.
The factory-spec R100RS is the epitome of a gentleman’s motorcycle. It’s a comfortable ride with large fairings and plenty of storage – everything you need for a cross-country road trip.
While Benoit knew that heavily modifying a pristine R100RS wouldn’t earn him many points with the purist crowd, the BMW 247 air-cooled flat-twin (or’airhead’) motor’s bulletproof durability and classic styling made it an obvious option.
Benoit drew inspiration from aircraft to create a fuselage that was devoid of the usual clutter. The futuristic fuselage also needed to flow as a single piece, with no lines separating segments (such as the fuel tank and seat).
