Wall Street Journal design editor Sarah Medford selected the Pilot Swivel Lounge Chair by Barber-Osgerby for Knoll as a top pick work-at-home chair in her April 7 WSJ online feature “Desk Chairs That Don’t Sacrifice Design Cred”. Medford focused on chairs that provide, “support without sacrificing style, providing various options from classic to high-fashion.”
Introduced in 2016, Pilot by Knoll marries visual and material lightness with exceptional comfort. The cantilevered seat, which features a unique upholstery substructure for greater flexibility, appears to float in the air, giving the chair a refined silhouette and an essential, timeless appeal.
“The Pilot by Knoll would fit well in Don Draper’s living room,” writes Medford, adding, “it is as light on the back as it appears in the home.”
