Whereas the frame consists of a more rigid, high-strength polypropylene, the seat and backrest adapt to the contours of the sitter's body. For even greater comfort, the backrest is connected to the frame by means of axial shafts with rubber buffers that enable the construction to gently flex in response to the sitter's movements.
