The Knoll Generation Chair is designed with movement in mind. This flexible and progressive ergonomic chair uses an innovative high-performance elastic material to make up its unique Flex back, which promotes good posture in almost any position. The Generation Chair's back stays breathable and it flexes as the user moves. The back material does not crumble or sag over time and the back's ergonomic design supports the shoulders, lumbar area and the spine.
This ultra-modern chair is high on style and functionality. The Knoll Generation Chair makes is easy to get comfortable with intuitive adjustment controls. It also features a comfortable and depth adjustable padded seat and an optional "ultra" seat cushion for more padding. The optional enhanced arms are width and depth adjustable and they pivot for changing tasks and positions. The Generation is also light and built with fewer parts than most other office chairs, making it an environmentally friendly option.

Generation fabric is made specially for the Knoll Generation ergonomic chair. It is 100% polyester and certified for 100,000+ double rubs.
Volo leather is a lightly corrected, aniline leather. The correction process refines the surface so it better accepts grain enhancement. Volo grade U leather receives a special retannage. This tightens the grain and provides a finer hand than other corrected leathers.
Sabrina leather is a full grain leather. It receives a special retannage which makes it a smooth, tight grain and supple leather. Sabrina is an excellent choice for both elegance and high traffic use. The average thickness is .9 - 1mm, and the average weight is 2.25 - 2.5 oz per square foot.
Almost the perfect chair
July 24, 2011
I am a computer programmer and work from my house several days a week. I wanted to make an investment on a very high quality "perfect" chair. This is almost it. I have owned the chair since early May 2011. It is indeed very comfortable. I really appreciate the way the seating surface and back support give and move with the way you are sitting. It certainly makes a long day so much better than a cheaper chair. I only gave it four star simply because of the price to own the chair. It took over 6 weeks for delivery (made to order I suppose). The fit and finish isn't exactly what I would expect on a chair of this caliber. There are several sharp edges on the seat bottom and the arm rests don't adjust very easily (behave like they need lubricant). Don't misunderstand it's not poor craftsmanship. I think it just needs some polish and refining. Then maybe it will be the perfect chair.
Looks good, nice ride

Had my knoll generation chair for about a month and my only complaint is that I didn't order the super adjustable arms. I'm all over the place in this chair - dig the flexible back... just wish I had gotten the arms that move around more to work with me sitting sideways, backwards, etc. Chair looks great in my office, and it's the most comfortable chair I've owned - well worth the wait.
The Knoll Generation chair is perfect for those looking for a truly modern, progressive and flexible ergonomic office chair. True to the Knoll brand, the Generation Chair offers unique, eye-catching style and a light, easy-to-move frame that's great for collaborative environments. Plus, its shaped to provide excellent back support and promote healthy postures all day.
