We primarily think of chairs for their utilitarian purpose – sitting. What is less obvious, perhaps, is that sitting is a far more complex activity. Sitting is far from static, and in today's fluid, collaborative work environment, a variety of seating is required to flexibly adapt to the needs of different users across different activities.
A person may sit in up to six chairs throughout their workday. From focused, 'heads down' individual work to casual, shared work between colleagues to more formal team work, Knoll's seating portfolio offers solutions that consider design, ergonomics, and materials for each of these occasions.
Knoll's research and approach to seating invokes holistic ergonomics, which integrates the physical considerations of engineering ergonomics and the mental considerations of cognitive ergonomics. The blend of the two addresses seating's functional requirements as well as its intangible ability to affect personal performance, company culture, and social interaction.
Across styles, our array of seating delivers on diversity in design, attention to detail, unmatched quality, breadth of material, and a commitment to sustainability for any office.
