JamesH is a task chair with a mesh backrest that provides an excellent complement to Martela’s James series. ‘The impulse to developing a new chair came from customers,’ says the designer Iiro Viljanen. ‘The interest shown by architects, for example, specifically in mesh backed task chairs has been increasing all the time.’ The chair looks light and airy, but it still provides extremely good support for the back. The backrest’s frame is injection moulded. Thanks to the advanced technical structure, the mesh is extremely robust and the chair does not require separate lumbar region support. The solution is also evident in the chair’s durability: the edge of the backrest’s mesh is inside the framework of the backrest so it is protected from wear and tear. Star base: black plastic or aluminium grey or polished. Armrests: upper part black, shaft black or polished aluminium. Backrest: black mesh fabric. Adjustments: seat height adjustment and tilt adjustment downwards, backrest height adjustment, swing function, armrest height, angle, depth and width adjustment. Accessories: with or without armrests, wider armrests and neckrest.

James task chairs have all the features required of a good task chair, such as versatile basic adjustments, a synchronized swing action for active sitting and good back support. There are four basic models in the James task chair series. The chair can be tailored to suit the environment and the user’s needs with the aid of armrests, different types of legs and other accessories.
