We got an email today from Knoll's public relations team. They are apparently readying an new task chair for introduction at this June's Neocon contract office furniture trade show in Chicago. He describes it:
The chair’s design draws from unique insights on the modern workplace, specifically on the new relationship between people and technology as well as their coworkers and is first work chair that allows you to sit and work the way you want.
The chair promotes the innovative use of materials to not only offer up an eco-friendly design, but also offer continuous support and flexibility for all of the body’s natural postures. This new chair builds on the iconic Knoll aesthetic and heralds a new era of office solutions that address ergonomics, and the intersection of design and the workplace, from a holistic point of view.
We have not shown too much here in the way of Knoll seating. They have always had oustanding design, but have not been the bleeding edge in seating recently. I'm excited to see what they have up their sleeve. I've requested a sample chair for review. We'll see if they are forthcoming with that.
