Don Chadwick is one of the world’s foremost experts in ergonomics. He 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. 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.
In collaboration with Knoll, he applied his expertise to develop the Chadwick Chair in 2005. He returned to Knoll in 2009 to introduce the Spark Series.
