Leadchair from Walter Knoll

The Leadchair from Walter Knoll is a groundbreaking new design for luxe residential and executive environments.

The art of leadership needs excellent tools – tools for convincing management.

Designed by EOOS, the new Leadchair makes a clear statement: modern understatement. The result of a five-year development process, the swivel chair represents the DNA in design by Walter Knoll: modernity that remains timeless, the constant development of upholstery expertise, the elegant shaping of lines and surface, the transparency of function. Soft skills with persuasive arguments – particularly for women in the executive seat.

Its appearance is all about flowing forms and clean lines. Every component and every line is precisely defined to create a harmonious whole. Soft leather modulates the elegant upholstery – a true sign of a long tradition in upholstery making. Base, rotating column, seat and back fork, and the armrests seem all of a piece. Take a seat, lean back, feel good. The angle between the seat and the backrest opens. The seat moves back and down. The supportive effect of the back can be set individually using the rotary cylinder under the seat. Healthy sitting thanks to the synchronised mechanism. Whether as an executive chair, a conference chair or a visitor chair. For that ergonomic comfort of modern leadership culture.
