    O-Knit Back

    Familiar geometry and a taller, more upright back frame pair with Knoll’s O-Knit to create consistent, resilient tension that mirrors your everyday movements.

    Active Pivot

    The active pivot control delivers a smooth, effortless recline without any manual adjustments. The automatic, synchronous motion between the back and the seat dynamically responds to you, sliding the seat forward and up as you recline.
