Surf task chair by Narbutas

Dezeen Showroom: Narbutas has released the Surf task chair, which features a sail-like backrest designed to keep the user comfortable for hours.

Surf features a curved backrest that Narbutas describes as resembling a windsurfing sail.

The Surf task chair comes in nine different colours

While bringing a contemporary silhouette into the office, the chair sustains a high comfort level and can be easily adapted to the individual user by adjusting its lumbar support, armrests, synchro mechanism and seat.

Its backrest is upholstered in Narbutas’s new Gabriel Runner mesh textile, which comes in nine different colours ranging from neutral tones to eye-catching brights.

The mesh backrest helps to maximise airflow and stop the user from overheating

The mesh aids comfort as it adapts to the contours of the back as well as maintaining constant airflow to avoid overheating.

Narbutas produced Surf in collaboration with German designer Justus Kolberg, who conceived the chair’s backrest and lumbar support.

“The design combines simplicity, elegance, modernity and comfort,” he explained.
