The Knoll Chadwick Office Chair was designed by Don Chandwick in 2005. Chadwick: seat and back frame: integrally coloured black glass filled nylon. Seat and back suspension fabric: polyester monofilament warp with multifilament fill fibres. Arms: Urethane arm pad with flexible spring steel insert. Integrally coloured glass filled nylon post.
The Knoll Chadwick chair has synchronised recline with tilt tension, height adjustable seat, and tilt stop. Arms are spring loaded and height adjustable.
Light Touch: Active suspension couples a unique synchronised back and seat tilt with an elastomeric suspension fabric. The tilt recline opens with the natural movement of the user whilst maintaining continuous lumbar support. The soft aerated suspension fabric conforms to the shape of the user and minimises pressure points. Chadwick also features a 3 degree forward tilt.
Light Tech: There are two, straightforward adjustment controls; seat height and tilt tension, both within easy reach, allowing you to customise your chair perfectly. A tilt stop gives the option to lock the back in an upright position. Arms may be fixed or height adjustable.
The Chadwick frame is formed with a minimal number of light injection moulded components. Strength is optimised with hollow air shafts using ‘gas assist’ technology. The principal components are linked in just 6 points. This engineering foresight gives tremendous efficiency of labour,
further contributing to the cost competitiveness of the chair.
Green Light: Chadwick was designed to the Knoll product Environmental Design Guideline. This sets out to minimise environmental impacts across the entire product lifecycle and carefully analyses the inter-relationship of the various environmental decisions. As a result Chadwick benefits from:
Raw materials with high recycled content. Clean manufacturing technologies. A minimum number of components. Component parts that are easy to assemble and disassemble. Structure and materials that are robust and durable.
