Tennis Office Seating

project information

year:1997
  • The inspiration behind this chair is a tennis racquet. A wooden frame supports a stretchable synthetic fabric to create the backrest. Except for the synchron tilt mechanism constructed of steel and aluminum, the entire chair is made of recyclable or renewable materials. The backrest moves up and down to adjust for lumbar requirements as well as being able to tilt backwards up to 20 degrees. The complex design of the seat and backrest move with the body of the user so that the seat slides forward and tilts backwards synchronously as the user leans back; it also slides backward and tilts forward as the user leans forward.
