The answer is in a sturdy, performance-driven chair. The Generation Chair by Knoll. So how does the Knoll Generation Chair make you more productive at work, and more supported?

The primary design element that lends itself to performance is literal flexibility. The Generation Chair is the first office chair to remove the stigma from non-traditional sitting styles. Many people sit in their chairs upright and facing forward, which is the way most chairs are designed. However, the designers at Knoll understood that moving in your chair, reclining and twisting, shifting positions, was not merely a tic of restless activity or a way to stay awake. It was essential to the maintenance of attention, circulation, and, more and more, to effective job performance. The average work chair cuts off circulation with hard edges and straightforward posture. The Generation Chair makes the front edge of the chair flexible so that doesn't happen. When the pressure on your thighs is relieved, as it is when sitting in the Generation Chair, your blood circulates better throughout your body. That includes your brain, which, due to the healthy flow of blood, stays alert and focused during the long workday. The Generation Chair can actually help you think!

Furthermore, the Generation Chair is designed to accommodate an endless number of seating styles and variations. The back of the chair is designed to support not only the back and shoulders when sitting forward, but the arms and chest when straddling the chair backwards. That's right, the Generation was designed to be so personal and flexible that sitting backwards is not only possible, not only acceptable, but encouraged and planned for. The arms of the chair are at a height and angle that makes it easy to sit with your legs underneath them. That allows not only backwards seating, but also side saddle sitting. The Generation Chair is the first of it's kind to offer users more than one way to sit, and the first to recognize shifting not as a problem but as an advantage. The Generation Chair thinks the way you do about seating; it should be comfortable; it should be adaptable; it should be personal.
