Generation by Knoll®

Generation by Knoll®

The first chair that lets you sit how you want.

This award-winning work 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. Generation takes the idea of elastic design—where a product rearranges itself in response to its user—to a new level.

Frameless Flex Back

The Flex Back fuses two innovative elements — the high performance elastomer Flex Back Net and a distinctive figure 8 structure — which together support many different postures and allow for multidimensional movement throughout the workday. The curvature of the figure 8 structure combined with the specific tension, pattern and unique properties of the Net enables side-to-side flex and ensures optimal localized support for shoulders and lumbar region.


Frameless Flex Seat

Generation by Knoll moves as you move, encouraging free expression, creativity and engagement at work. The Flex Seat offers 270 degrees of seat edge flex without a hard frame or obtrusive levers along the seat perimeter, as well as 3" of seat depth adjustment.


Dynamic Suspension™

Constructed from the same high performance elastomer as the Flex Back Net, the simple, non-mechanical Dynamic Suspension provides a weight-compensated, smooth ride — without the complexity of metal links or springs. The inherent properties of this material — flex and durability — enable an enhanced range of energizing, side-to-side movements
