Stonorov & Kahn were invited, along with six other architectural firms, by the furntiture manufacturer Hans Knoll to join a "planning unit," set up to study the needs of contemporary households and devise new "equipment for living" -- essentially furniture and appliances -- for his clients to manufacture. These were then to be placed in an ideal architectural environment (cited from: "Louis I. Kahn: In the Realm of Architecture).
