MultiGeneration Hybrid Side Chair by Knoll

The hybrid Generation Chair doubles as a task and side chair as needed. Similar to its progenitor, the Generation Chair the MultiGeneration Chair encourages movement. The open design allows the user to sit however they like. The slim cut of the back and the arm design built into the back of the seat permit 270 degrees of movement, so you can twist, turn, and squirm however you like.
Available with glides or casters for hard floors or carpet.
A stacking version of the MultiGeneration Chair is also available.

The unique hybrid chair design combines comfort and mobility. A buoyant, cantilevered form meets a 4-leg construction with the option of casters. The Dynamic Seat Structure creates an active ride for enhanced performance and comfort.
The full, curved back allows for upper body movement and supports the lower back for upright, interactive postures, while a gently contoured seat with rounded corners and a cantilevered arm design lets you shift positions easily. The arms feature contoured arm pads to lean against when side sitting.
The back of the chair, while visually simple, is designed for performance. The perforated back makes the chair more breathable than typical shell chairs. The rolled top edge serves as an armrest for side sitting and a handle for easy transport.
Sitting doesn't have to be a static state. MultiGeneration removes the constraints of the typical static chair and provides the right balance of responsiveness and support with innovative features.
