Our History

The Science Behind the Art

Charles Lane opened Lane Scientific Equipment with a vision in 1922, but even he had no idea what the company would become. His pioneering spirit still drives us. Today, under the leadership of owner and CEO Gregory F. Burke, we’re not only New York’s preeminent Knoll distributor, but we also use science in ways our founder could have never dreamed. As the exclusive NYC partner for DIRTT (Doing It Right This Time), for example, we use powerful 3D software to design and demonstrate workspaces in real time. We look at how your people work together most efficiently. We help our clients make every interior space decision, from workflow to layout to fit and finish. Whether the need is a single chair or a million square feet in the World Trade Center, Lane Office helps clients work in spaces that are works of art, as beautiful as they are functional.
