Description

Vitra’s ID Mesh is an elegant task chair designed by Antonio Citterio that, due to its features, is very well suited for even longer periods of sitting. A study conducted by the Institute for Biomechanics at the Swiss university ETH Zurich found that chairs in the the ID range prevent health problems by activating muscles in the abdomen and back as well the lower spine. The soft seat and supportive backrest make the chair comfortable even without adjustments, but the adjustable height, seat depth and armrests help in making the chair optimally ergonomic for each user. The chair is also equipped with a forward tilt mechanism, backrest resistance and lumbar support, all adjustable. The backrest of the ID Mesh chair guarantees air flow even in higher temperatures.
