Designed by award-winning architect Sava Cvek and backed by more than half a century of Stylex know-how, SAVA® Mesh Back represents a revolution in control, comfort, and movement. Its groundbreaking Balanced Tilt mechanism functions through a set of user-friendly, clearly visible paddle adjustments to optimize the seated experience. Based on its flexible seat pan and a mesh back that pivots around a forward point under that seat, the chair incorporates correct geometry to achieve a grounded, remarkably responsive ride that is both poised and effortless for a wide range of individuals up to 325 pounds.


SAVA® Mesh Back is a task chair that actually works. With a seat upholstered in fabric or leather to accompany the mesh back, it is easy to specify for many different environments including conference rooms, executive suites, and open-plan workspaces. With such a high degree of functionality, it smoothly addresses the broad spectrum of requirements the modern office demands. It’s a multi-purpose, multi-tasking product line that always feels coherent and singular.


SAVA® Mesh Back wasn’t conceived to be flashy, faddish, or dated. Instead, it is simply timeless. With classical lines, a clean profile, and the most advanced ergonomics, SAVA Mesh Back is a highly polished, generally appealing solution for workplace seating. Making a sophisticated first impression and performing beautifully throughout its working life, this family of chairs is built for demanding, knowledgeable users in this generation and the next, and the next.
