Design by FormWay Design, 2010.
By Knoll.

Informed by FormWay's Senior designer that "we fidget to focus", Knoll's MultiGeneration Chair permits natural movement with its flexible design that encourage users to remain alert and focused throughout the day. Made of curved nylon, back promotes liberal upper body movement, while still providing enough support to the lower back to maintain upright posture. Plus, the perforated shell moves with you while promoting airflow and refreshing coolness. The shape and material of the seat shell give the chair a buoyancy that prevents the user from feeling "locked in" while the arm and leg positions allow for a full range of movement.

The unique hybrid base is a design solution that combines the comfort of a cantilever form with the sturdiness of a four-leg construction, providing the option of mobility from casters while freeing up the front corners for various postures. The combination results in a design that responds to the user's weight and allows 270 degrees of sitting on a mobile base with legs that are set back from the perimeter, unlocking users from a fixed position. As one of Knoll's most accessible and functional seating options, the MultiGeneration Chair can be used in a number of environments including private offices, conference rooms and dining rooms. The chair can be customized in frame finishes and a wide range of shell colors to make this awarded chair uniquely yours.
