About the Brand

Knoll ® Generation Chair

Promotes interaction and collaboration. Flex Back and Flex Top created from high performance elastomer facilitates changes in posture and position throughout the work day. Extends range of movement, allowing you to sit comfortably in any position - even sideways. Flex net enables side-to-side flex and ensures optimal localized support for shoulders and lumbar region. High performance arms incorporate free-floating arm pads that naturally adjust as you change positions. Dynamic Suspension control counterbalances body weight, resulting in smooth, effortless ride. Tilt preference selector allows for additional resistance in recline.

Sustainable design is a key component of Knoll's environmental focus. Commitment to social responsibility and a healthy environment has prompted Knoll to further articulate its longstanding environmental programs and, with encouragement and support from colleagues in industry, has re-energized their focus on such ''green'' initiatives as life cycle analysis and LEED certification. Knoll is proud to have contributed to projects that have received LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The Generation Chair is Greenguard certified. The Generation Chair has earned the Sustainable Platinum rating under SMaRT Consensus. Each authentic product includes a certificate of authenticity. The Generation Chair is the first chair that lets you sit how you want. It offers a new standard of comfort and unrestrained movement, supporting a range of postures and work styles typical of today's workplace. The Generation takes the idea of elastic design - where a product rearranges itself in response to user - to a new level. Form way Studios joined forces to create a chair that moves as you move, without forcing you to choose between freedom of movement and continuous support.

It's not a chair. It's a movement.

from New York

My work place bought a bunch of these chairs for the newly constructed edit suits. As a TV editor I sit almost all day. The Knoll Chairs are so bad even 4 hours sitting in one will make your back hurt. It is not just me, 75 of the other editors make sure to switch out these chairs for other ones. Stealing good chairs and replacing them with the bad Knoll chairs is not uncommon. The Arch of the back hits you just below the curve of your spine. With no way to adjust this, you can not sit properly in the chair. Some of the shorter editors find the OK but if you are over 5'10 it is bad,bad, bad. The top of the back is very flexible which collapses if you lean back at all. I have sat in much cheaper chairs that are much more comfortable.
