Get Seen!

Arranging Objects

Order


Knoll (nōl) vb. Knolling is simply the process of arranging objects so they are parallel or at 90-degree angles. It helps keep everything organised and when photographed creates clean, noticeable images. The term was coined in 1987 by a janitor name Andrew Kromelow who was working at Frank Gehry’s furniture making shop. The story goes that Kromelow would neatly arrange the jumble of the day’s tools at right angles on the benches as he cleaned up.

He dubbed the practice knolling because it reminded him of the right angles in Florence Knoll’s angular furniture (Gehry was designing for Knoll at the time).

Eye of the Tiger

A Beak in the Wind

The nose of the Tiger might be unliked by some with its proboscis protruding from the eye-like headlights; but I find it offers a strong moto statement aiming for the road ahead.
