Saul Feldberg, who catalyzed a new era of office furnishings, recently passed away surrounded by his family at age 87. With a vision to create an efficient and affordable office chair, Feldberg founded Global Furniture Group in 1966 and later established Teknion, with the architecture and design community in mind, in 1983.
Under Feldberg’s leadership along with his sons Joel, president of Global Furniture Group, and David, CEO of Teknion, the companies have grown into international businesses that continue to profoundly shape how people move through and interact in interiors. Last year, Global Furniture Group was recognized as a 2022 Interior Design HiP Award honoree in the health and wellness: furniture and seating category for the brand’s Calidon seating and tables.
