Pilot High chair, 2015

Pilot High chair by Barber Osgerby for Knoll.

The Pilot is a striking and innovative new lounge chair, designed by Barber & Osgerby for Knoll to be a flexible and comfortable seating option for domestic, work and contract interiors.

The seat is strongly cantilevered from the sub-frame to create an impression of lightness and allowing the seat to flex downwards when used, greatly enhancing the sense of comfort. The seat also rotates on a charcoal grey cast aluminium frame for increased adaptability of use.

The flat back panel has been constructed to adapt to the sitter's back and is available in different heights and depths of upholstery. The ‘Slim’ version is the most visually lightweight, while the 'Soft' option offers an additional degree of padding. The back is available in low and high versions.

In addition, the chair can be configured with or without arms. Metal arms are available in either chrome or charcoal finishes, or upholstered arms can be added to transform the chair both aesthetically and functionally.

The modular construction of the Pilot chair means that the arms, back and seat can be upholstered in different colours of the same fabric, as shown in images above. However, if the leather is chosen, arms, back and seat must be specified in the same colour.

Please note: When upholstered in Eva fabric collection, there will be a lead time of 12-14 weeks.

The pricing example is for a Pilot chair with a 'soft' high back, no return mechanism and no arms, please enquire for more information about a version with a return mechanism or slim padding. See 'More products in the range' below for Low back and versions with arms.

Materials Dropdown

The Pilot chair has a simple T-shaped aluminium frame with a moulded foam seat, back, aluminium base and armrests are seamlessly mounted to this structure. This design reduces the chair to only six components, thereby optimising the efficiency of assembly and ensuring parts are easily interchanged. The cast aluminium base has been pared back to the slimmest possible dimensions in order to enhance the sense of visual lightness.
