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.

high task. aspect is an afterthought
, more than a month ago.
i purchased this chair due to the raving reviews for this price-point. the chair has some nice design features and does move with your body well. the back and armrests flex nicely will adding support. the problem with this chair as a high task are two-fold: 1) the front lip of the seat angles up. even though it is flexible it is still firm enough that with your legs hanging over the edge, which is the case with a high task chair, it tends to cut-off circulation. 2) this could be alleviated through the footrest, which should allow your feet to rest in such a manner that your legs create a 90ish as if they were on the floor with a regular chair; however, the foot rest is not large enough in diameter and is too high in lower seat settings due to the steep angle of the base. as a result, the foot rest is unable to provide a reasonable location for your feet to eliminate the pressure created by the front lip of the seat on your hamstring.

3) another issue is that the reclining functionality is disabled with the high task model, which was not communicated by any of the documentation or websites, neither any second party sellers or directly from knoll.

i would be willing to bet that the regular version of this chair is pretty solid, they just need to make some slight design changes for the high task version.
