This award-winning ergonomic office chair offers a new standard of comfort and unrestrained movement. Responding to ergonomic research, which challenges the idea that we only sit in a single forward-facing position, the Generation by Knoll office chair is designed to support the range of postures and work styles typical of today’s workplace. Generation by Knoll takes the idea of elastic design where a product rearranges itself in response to its user to a new level.

 Knoll Formway Design Archival Image

Founded in 1956, New Zealand-based Formway Design has been designing furniture for more than five decades. In 1979 the company redefined itself, developing a new identity and philosophy that focused on team-based design and extensive research.

Formway’s designs are informed by insight gained through observation and consideration of human behavior. Their user-centered approach marries a rigorous design process, aesthetic sensitivity, and a passion for the environment.

Knoll and Formway first collaborated on the highly successful Life® Chair, introduced in 2002, which is celebrated for its sophisticated design, intuitive adjustments, responsive ergonomics and sustainable attributes.

Building on these features, the two companies came together once again to develop the Generation chair, introduced in 2009. The progressive design features new materials and an elastic design that supports the physical and cognitive activities of the modern office worker. Inspired by Generation, MultiGeneration® and ReGeneration® expand the Generation by Knoll® Family.
