Meet the Generation Family!

This is the first family of chairs that lets you sit how you want.

Recognizing that we fidget – from tapping our feet to twirling our pens – to keep us alert and engaged, Formway Design gave MultiGeneration form and function that encourage natural movement, allowing us to focus, interact and communicate more effectively.

The Knoll Generation Chair is designed around the idea that there is no single right way to sit. The typical task chair is made for sitting in an upright, forward-facing posture, which is only one of many ways workers use their chairs in the increasingly dynamic modern workplace. With this in mind, the Generation moves as users move.

Knoll Generation Chair Features
  • High performance elastomer in flex net back and dynamic suspension control are extremely user-friendly
  • Height adjustable arms provide lumbar support when sitting sideways
  • Flex back top and figure 8 structure to allow multi-dimensional movement
  • Construction with fewer parts and processes than comparable chairs

Knoll MultiGeneration Chair Features
  • Full, curved back allows for upper body movement and supports the lower back for upright, interactive posture
  • Gently contoured seat with rounded corners lets you shift positions easily
  • Cantilevered arms feature contoured arm pads to lean against when side sitting
  • Passive flex encourages natural movement
  • Flexing shell promotes comfort and movement
  • Perforated back provides airflow
  • Rolled top edge for ease-of-use
  • An armrest for side sitting
  • A handle for easy transport
Would you like to experience the movement? RJE Business Interiors in Indianapolis has several of the Generation task chairs and MultiGeneration chairs in their showroom. Just give us a call or stop by our showroom at 621 East Ohio Street, Indianapolis, IN 46202.

RJE Supports United Way

RJE Business Interiors is a proud supporter of the United Way of Central Indiana. The United Way of Central Indiana helps sustain vital human services for those who need it the most while reducing such needs for future generations. RJE has held a 100% employee participation rate for the last six years during the United Way's annual campaign. Our Indianapolis office furniture dealership continues to support the organization through participation on the Board, Emerging Leaders Steering Committee, the ReadUP program, Oscar Night Committee, along with various other committees. RJE's participation with the organization will continue to prosper!

RJE participates in the United Way of Central Indiana's annual meeting each year. Over 900 people gather in downtown Indianapolis to celebrate the success of the organizations fundraising campaign. This year the event was held on March 22, at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. RJE supported the event by sponsoring a table and participating in the organizations fun, celebratory activities. Each table was personalized with a special chocolate music note that included all the ways each organization has been involved with the United Way. The event was a true success and RJE Business Interiors is honored to be a partner of the United Way of Central Indiana!
