Toboggan® Chair Desk

A versatile chair desk that supports new ways of working.

Toboggan is a playful, yet practical solution for focused, shared or team work in an increasingly social and mobile workplace. A sled based chair desk for collaborative and learning environments, Toboggan makes clever use of shape and scale to allow users to shift 360 degrees in the seat, with the back serving as backrest, armrest or impromptu tablet worksurface.


Unique Design

The signature dual-purpose back serves as a backrest, armrest or tablet worksurface for front, side and rear-facing postures. The molded plywood surfaces of the back and seat are angled for comfort and allow users to shift 360 degrees.

Versatile in Form and Function

Not only versatile in how it can be sat on, Toboggan is lightweight enough to be carried throughout the office, offering users a portable workspace perfect for collaboration or quiet refuge.

Diversity of Finishes

Five frame paint finishes and six tablet/seat veneer and laminate finishes ensure that Toboggan will complement your space.

Antenna Design was founded in 1997 by Masamichi Udagawa, a Cranbrook Academy graduate, and Sigi Moeslinger, who holds degrees from NYU and Art Center College of Design. Antenna's people-centered design approach aims to make the experience of objects and environments more meaningful and exciting. Among Antenna’s best known projects are the design of New York City Subway cars and ticket vending machines, JetBlue check-in kiosks and displays for Bloomberg.

When Knoll set out to create a new open plan office system, Antenna’s experience with the ever-expanding presence of technology, and their expertise in user experience made them an attractive collaborative partner. Together Knoll and Antenna conceived Antenna Workspaces, an innovative open plan system, which reflects Udagawa and Moeslinger’s interest in functional simplicity and their expertise in using design as a tool of social interaction that bridges people and technology.

Antenna has been recognized with several prestigious design awards, including the National Design Award in Product Design from the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. Both Udagawa and Moeslinger are senior critics in graphic design at the Yale University School of Art.
