Knoll Chadwick Chair
designed by Don Chadwick

Simple is sometimes better than complicated.

Knoll Chadwick Chair Tilt

The Chadwick chair combines a synchronized control and tilt tension (Active Suspension Technology) with a supremely breathable seat and back fabric to create a cradle for your body. The fabric works to provide body-conforming support without requiring you to figure out a bunch of controls to get it "just right," and the active suspension allows your torso to open up when you lean back; your circulatory system is given a better environment to do its work, and you end up more comfortable as a result.

And all that with the least amount of work on your part. Simply adjust tilt tension and seat height and you're ready to sit comfortably.

The Chadwick chair's built-in lumbar support (enhanced by the curvature of the task chair's back) gives you the support you need. If you need more, there's an optional lumbar pad (also easy-to-operate: simply install using the provided magnets) to give you the comfort you're looking for.

The Chadwick chair by Knoll: innovatively simple.

        Glides are like feet for chairs. They are not wheels, they don't roll, they just cap off the bottom of the chair leg and are smooth for direct contact on floors.
