In 1964, Robert, Eric and Frank Zoebelein, along with their cousin, Fred Drechsel, launched Reff Furniture to seize an opportunity. Against the backdrop of the social revolution of the 1960s, the brothers saw a way to revolutionize office furniture. At the time, architects designed office buildings and workspaces. Furniture makers designed office furniture.

Client Testimonial

We weren’t simply moving offices—we were looking to transform the way we work. This required significant change: we needed partners that we could collaborate with. Drechsel & Knoll were those partners, acting as more than our furniture suppliers. They were intimately involved in the design process that was so critical to our success. We couldn’t be happier with the result: our people love our new space and the furniture is such a big part of that.
