Contessa

Contessa™ represents the modern classic of mesh seating, a refinement of function, comfort and style.

Contessa is a feature-loaded chair that is also easy to operate. Contessa's "smart operation" concept - an advanced, patented mechanism that employs levers conveniently located in the armrests - enables users to make adjustments while seated, encouraging accurate positioning and continuous movement. Movement is critical to healthy sitting, allowing the body to continuously regenerate and promote healthful circulation.

The optional Tess Mesh seat is uniquely tensioned from the standard Tess Mesh back. Upholstered seat options include a co-ordinating Tess Cloth or Teknion Textiles offering.
