chadwick™ task chair

Design Don Chadwick, 2004
Made in USA by Knoll

Smart. Comfortable. Easy. Accessible. Just Right.

An innovative hybrid seating design that accommodates the changing needs of today's workplace. Don Chadwick, the chair's renowned designer (and inventor of the iconic Aeron Chair), conceived it to embody the best of his thinking and the finest principles of Knoll design. The result is the office chair refined - and redefined. Chadwick developed and refined his design for the Chadwick chair over some time: "Throughout my career," he said, "I've been striving to scale down what a chair is about materially. I think the result is a Knoll chair that is very sympathetic to its ergonomic goals but manages to bridge issues of materials and technologies, allowing a solution that's light in scale." Perfectly at home in domestic settings as well as the office, the Chadwick Chair is an instant classic.

Hans Knoll, the son of a pioneer German furniture manufacturer, founded the Knoll company in New York City in 1938, one year after immigrating from Germany. He hired Florence Schust, a Cranbrook graduate who had worked for Gropius and Breuer, and the two were married in 1946. The next year, they opened a textiles division and showroom that was flanked with some of the worlds leading designers. Knoll would triumph thanks to impressive international contacts, gaining exclusive rights to the works of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and producing them to their original specifications. This included the 1929 Barcelona Chair. They also commissioned Eero Saarinen to design the now iconic Tulip chair, and hold the rights to Marcel Breuer’s seminal Wassily Chair. Artists such as Harry Bertoia, Jens Risom, and Isamu Noguchi would also collaborate with Knoll.
