Apples is a screen-printed textile created in 1950 by ceramicist and illustrator Frederick Stig Lindberg. "After Hans and Florence Knoll are married in 1946, they go to Europe on their honeymoon and spend time in Sweden looking for furniture and textiles to bring back to the U.S. and put into the Knoll line," Makovsky says. "They worked with Astrid Sampe, who was the director of textiles at Stockholm department store Nordiska Kompaniet, or NK. Apples was part of NK's line and became part of Knoll's collection in 1948."
