Designed by Formway Design - Knoll

Founded in 1956, New Zealand-based Formway Design has been designing furniture for more than five decades. In 1979 the company redefined itself, developing a new identity and philosophy that focused on team-based design and extensive research. Formway’s designs are informed by insight gained through the observation and consideration of human behavior. Their user-centered approach marries a rigorous design process, an aesthetic sensitivity, and a passion for the environment.


Designed by Formway Design for Knoll, the Life chair is made from eco-sensitive materials streamlined in a sculptural, zen-like silhouette, without sacrificing the ultimate in performance, precision and durability. Life sets the international standard for high-performance, ergonomic seating, fitting naturally into any work space. Ideal for the home office, the Life chair can be customized for any environment. A wide range of upholstery options enable the home user to benefit ergonomically without sacrificing aesthetics.
