Design by Formway Design, 2009.
By Knoll.

Because the work spaces of today require almost constant movement and varying tasks, Knoll has teamed up to design a work chair that fits the individual, for the ultimate in mobility and comfort. Generation by Knoll offers a new standard of comfort and unrestrained movement, supporting the range of postures and work styles typical of today's workplace. Designed by Formway Design, Generation takes the idea of elastic design — where a product rearranges itself in response to its user — to a new level.

Current ergonomic research challenges the idea of a single, forward-facing posture, recognizing that maintaining one seated position for an extended time is not compatible with the body's natural tendency toward movement. Created from a high performance elastomer, the innovative Generation by Knoll Flex Back facilitates changes in posture and position throughout the workday. The Flex Top extends the range of movement, allowing you to sit comfortably in any position (even sideways). The curvature of the chair's figure 8 structure combined with the specific tension, pattern and unique properties of Flex Net enables side-to-side flex and ensures optimal localized support for shoulders and lumbar region. Responding to your range of movement, the Flex Top folds over the top edge of the back providing a comfortable armrest for side sitting or other informal postures. Generation® features a recycled content of 40% (plastic base version) and 46% (aluminum base version). This ingenious chair is constructed using minimal materials and manufactured using clean technologies.
