The first step to greatness is sitting down

From the prolific mind of industrial designer Marc Newson, the Newson Task chair features a simple, organic design packed with sophisticated hidden technology to deliver the personal support you're looking for.

Has your back

The Honeycomb Back supports the way you work through the pairing of a uniquely flexible frame and an elastomeric skin, so you experience a broad range of supporting movement.

Tailored to you

An innovation in mechanisms, the T1 Control utilizes a vertical spring system that allows you to tailor the recline experience so you can get the deepest dwell or sit upright while you focus. Twist the tension knob five full rotations to experience the range of movement.

A sensory experience

Designed to take work to the next level, the back and arm feel soft like suede, and the contrasting knobs and handles draw your attention for adjusting with bright colors and shiny smooth surfaces.

Floating seat

The seat adjusts forward and back along a cantilever platform to keep the seat light and open while providing the right fit for you.
