HeadLine, the innovative office chair, not only provides optimal support in the lumbar zone, but also targets areas that are often neglected – the shoulders, neck and head. When the sitter leans back, the upper backrest extension tilts forward to support the head, keeping the line of vision on the monitor. This fulfills the ergonomic requirements of modern office work and prevents muscle strain in the upper back.
