Generation by Knoll® Desk Chair


This award-winning 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, Generation is designed to support the range of postures and workstyles typical of today's workplace, allowing you to sit how you want.

Understanding that no combination of adjustment levers could make a chair equally comfortable in each of those positions, Formway sought to achieve an elastic design—the idea that a product would rearrange itself in response to a user’s movements. After years of design and development, spent considering and reconsidering every component of the chair, Formway arrived at a truly innovative design.

Online options include choice of height adjustable arms or high performance arms with a plastic base, hard casters, dark color frame, onyx back net and onyx seat fabric. Both height adjustable arms and high performance arms provide arm height range of 22.75-32.5", while high performance arms allow adjustment of the width between arms as well as distance from the chair's back. Additional custom options* available.

Frameless Flex Back fuses two elements: high performance elastomeric Flex Back Net cradles your back, providing integral lumbar support, and figure 8 structure enables multidimensional movement. Flex Seat offers 270 degrees of unobstructed seat edge flex with a buoyant two-piece cushion and nest structure. Continuous Lumbar carries the lumbar support from the back into the arms to support side sitting. The Dynamic Suspension™ offers weight-compensated, synchronized recline for a smooth, effortless ride. Flex Top folds over as armrest for side sitting. Tilt Preference Selector offers three ranges of recline movement. This chair has been tested and is approved for use by individuals weighing up to 300 pounds. This chair is warranted for 12 years, 24-hour, 7 days a week, multi shift use.
