Careers with Parker Knoll

Who we are

Ever since Frederick Parker created the business back in 1869, Parker Knoll has been renowned
for designing and developing the best of British furniture of the highest possible quality. Over
time, with the help of his sons the business was very quickly established in the UK, leading to
exhibitions at the British Industries Fair where the brand was frequented by royalty.

With the help of Willi Knoll, Parker continued to develop a highly innovative business that broke
the boundaries of design and sought to enhance the everyday sitting experience. Today at Parker
Knoll these founding principles remain at the core of our business and our dedicated team of
craftsmen and women bring their experience and high standard to production today.
