Design Antenna Design, 2015
Powder-coated steel, molded plywood with veneer or laminate
Made in USA by Knoll

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 work surface.

Antenna Design was founded in 1997 by Masamichi Udagawa and Sigi Moeslinger. Antenna's people-centered design approach aims to make the experience of objects and environments more meaningful and exciting. Their work reflects an interest in functional simplicity and using design as a tool of social interaction to bridge 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.

Toboggan desk chair is offered in a diverse finish palette. It features a curved, molded plywood seat & back for comfort with a lightweight powder-coated steel frame design for easy transport. Also includes molded nylon tip stops and glides. Toboggan chair has been tested and is approved for use by individuals weighting up to 300 pounds. For split finishes on tablet and seat, please call the hive showroom.

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.
