Basyx HVL521 Work Chair, Mesh Back
by HON

This is our most basic work chair, with a mesh back flourish. The mesh is first and foremost all about breathability. The back of the chair allows air to pass freely, keeping you cool even in the warmest offices. The 521 also includes armrests and standard adjustment. Somewhat reminiscent of the Eames Aluminum Group chairs, this model is a great style buy as well as a great value buy. The Basyx HVL521 mesh-back task chair is the perfect chair for those whose primary need in seating is breathability. The contoured seat supports and cushions, and the mesh back features a curve for spinal support. It's a great value for task environments, and comes in basic office standard black. The HVL521 is right for you if you just need a mesh-back work chair with arms.


  • Swivel-Tilt: perfect for those up and down throughout the day, the combined 360 swivel/tilt allows for smooth recline that helps keep everything within reach.
  • Fixed Arms: simple, secure, sturdy, attractive.
  • Mesh Back: highly breathable, with designer contours.
  • Sturdy Frame & Base: five-star base for stability and casters for mobility.

      Yes, the seat of the Basyx HVL521 Work Chair is fully upholstered with foam cushioning. Your second question is very subjective, but yes, the mesh back is supportive.
