Knoll, Inc. And Alphaville Design, Inc. Resolve Trademark Dispute Relating To Mies Van Der Rohe Furniture

EAST GREENVILLE, Pa., March 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Knoll, Inc. (NYSE: KNL) and Alphaville Design, Inc. announced today that they have settled their dispute relating to Knoll's registered "BARCELONA®" trademark (U.S. Trademark Registration No. 772,313), and its trademarks relating to the Barcelona Chair (U.S. Trademark Registration No. 2,893,025), Barcelona Stool (U.S. Trademark No. 2,894,977), Barcelona Couch (U.S. Trademark No. 2,894,980), Barcelona Table (U.S. Trademark No. 2,894,979), and Flat Brno Chair (U.S. Trademark No. 2,894,978).  Knoll had alleged that certain products sold by Alphaville Design infringed the Knoll trademarks, while Alphaville Design claimed that the trademarks were invalid.  To resolve the dispute, Alphaville Design, Inc. and its owners, David and Peggy Lee, acknowledged the validity of, and Knoll's rights to, the above-referenced trademarks, and in return Knoll granted them the right to sell similar products for a limited period of time.  In connection with the settlement, the parties have agreed to dismiss the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.
