Vitra, 2006

HeadLine not only provides optimal support in the lumbar zone, but also targets vulnerable areas that have previously been neglected – the shoulders, neck and head. In this way, it fulfils the ergonomic requirements of modern office work. In an upright sitting position, the head and spine are naturally balanced. But when the sitter leans back, most conventional office chairs do not provide sufficient support, resulting in strain and tension in the neck and shoulders.

Collaboration with Mario Bellini

HeadLine solves this problem: the flexible, elongated backrest hangs from articulated joints at the support points for the lower back and neck. In the upright position, primary support is given to the lumbar zone. When the sitter leans back, the shoulders sink into the back panel and the upper backrest extension tilts forward to support the head. This effectively prevents muscle strain in the neck and shoulder areas, and the sitter’s viewpoint remains horizontally focused on the monitor in the reclined position rather than shifting toward the ceiling.
