The Rogers Television Canada production, Structures, which visits the 54th floor of the Toronto-Dominion Bank Tower, showcases designs by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe for Knoll. In this episode, the award-winning Ontario cable series explores the bank’s historic building and captures how seamlessly furniture can work to complement a space without undermining it.
The 54th floor is almost entirely 1960s-original and a tribute to Mies van der Rohe design philosophy. The details he labored over five decades ago have been painstakingly maintained.
Cracks in the Italian travertine floor, visible since its installation, have never been filled in—a detail Mies wanted preserved. Among the 1960-originals are black leather and chrome Brno chairs and brown Barcelona chairs, manufactured by Knoll, as well as credenzas by Florence Knoll that add to the timelessness of the space.
