Design & Innovation

What if your desk chair could offer the refined coziness of your favorite sweater along with the support and style of the latest running shoe—combining beautiful knit patterns, soft high-performance fibers, and breathable comfort?

Produced using state-of-the-art digital knitting machines and custom fiber compositions—based on our specific requirements for strength, durability, and softness—Haworth Digital Knits offer new and unexpected textile possibilities. Removing typical design constraints, knits provide more freedom to create striking, unique pieces with patterns, colors, textures, and performance elements unavailable elsewhere. This also opens the door to future opportunities for creating bespoke pieces through yarn fibers, colors, and stitching.

Haworth Digital Knits are the embodiment of design and innovation—creating workspaces with the residential warmth people are drawn to. Look for more designs and fresh ideas to come, as our scientists, engineers, designers, materials experts, and globally renowned manufacturing partners continue to work together, researching and developing new uses for knitting technology across our range of product lines.

And because Haworth Digital Knits are engineered to exact dimensions, there is no cutting or leftover material, producing perfectly-sized, zero-waste results that support organizational sustainability efforts.
