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.
