Drumback task chair

Drumback combines the benefits of upholstered and mesh back chairs.
The mesh/fabric is stretched – a bit like on a drum – across a polypropylene back rest. This gives users the ventilated comfort of a mesh back combined with the stability of a single-piece backrest shell.

Design: Martin Ballendat
