Designed by Don Chadwick - Knoll

One of the world’s foremost experts in ergonomics, Don Chadwick received his principal design training at the University of California, Los Angeles. He then worked for architect Victor Gruen before establishing his own practice in 1964.

Over the last several decades, Don Chadwick has pioneered the use of modern materials, molding processes, and mechanisms to revolutionize the field of ergonomic chair design. In 1994, Chadwick designed the landmark Aeron Chair for Herman Miller, catapulting him to national attention.

In collaboration with Knoll, Chadwick applied his expertise to develop the Chadwick Chair in 2005. He returned to Knoll in 2009 to introduce the Spark Series. Knoll Design Director, Benjamin Pardo said of the Spark: “Don worked within the architectural constraints of the chair without adding unnecessary embellishments or sacrificing comfort. Spark’s subtle design allows it to change personality through color, texture and pattern. This subtlety brings an enduring quality to the design that is consistent with our modern design heritage at Knoll.


One chair. Multiple functions. Perfect for working, meeting or training. Chadwick is a new definition of affordable seating. Don Chadwick, an ergonomic design pioneer, created a chair that embodies the best of his thinking with the finest principles of Knoll design. From its streamlined form to its smart engineering, Chadwick is the office chair refined — and redefined. Its Active Suspension™ technology couples a unique synchronized recline with a proprietary elastomeric fabric that together anticipate and respond to your body’s movements throughout the day with energizing comfort and a supportive ride. Chadwick strikes the perfect balance of simplicity and innovation that is just right.
