Life®

Formway Design 2002

As Shown

Life sets the standard for sophisticated design and effortless comfort. The advanced control automatically responds to shifts in body weight, providing personalized ergonomic support.

SHARE THIS CONFIGURATION

Synchronized Recline

Life features a synchronized recline mechanism with auto-balanced tension. The fluid, natural movement of the mechanism uses your body weight as a ounterbalance, supporting reclined, upright and forward seated positions without the need for manual adjustments.

Dynamic Seat Pan with Forward Flex

The innovative flexing seat pan alleviates pressure points, allows for proper circulation, supports perched postures and eliminates the need for thick foam upholstery. Seat pan has 4" of depth adjustment.

Knit Back Suspension on Flexible Frame

The Life Back Suspension Fabric (BSF) is an exclusive elastomeric knit that is soft, resilient and durable. Coupled with the curve and flex of the back frame, it provides integral pelvic, lumbar and shoulder support.

Life: Video Operating Instructions

Although Knoll has emphasized and incorporated sustainable manufacturing processes since the 1970s, the 2002 introduction of Life® marked a new level of commitment to environmental responsibility.

Designed in collaboration with Formway Design, Life® represents a complete rethinking of how to approach sustainability through design. It’s not just about what materials are used, but how much material is used and how readily those materials can be separated and recycled. Almost all of the parts can be removed and updated, which combined with superior ergonomic comfort, make Life® quite possibly the last chair you will ever buy.
