In today’s ever-more connected workplace, you switch tasks, toggle between devices, and collaborate more than ever before. You need the freedom to work however you choose – to sit how you want. 

Generation started a revolutionary movement as the first holistically-inspired chair – drawing on cues from the body, the mind and today’s range of workstyles. In a world of prescriptive chairs with lots of adjustments, Generation has you covered with intuitive movement that takes the work out of sitting—so you can sit and get to work.
