Design Ergonomics: Our Top Office Chair Picks
Investing in quality chairs for the office seems like a simple endeavor, but nothing could be further from the truth. The office chair industry is massive, with sales estimates for 2021 around $12.9 billion, and expected figures of nearly $18.5 billion by the end of 2027. With so many available options, the research necessary for selecting seating is just as daunting; with evolving ergonomic considerations, functional requirements, and design elements that speak to the expression of a company’s brand and culture, chair choice will also make a loud and clear statement to staff and clients. Savvy investors know that time is money, and the dedicated and talented designers at Working Spaces are here to save both with a list of our Top Office Chair Picks of the season.
Simple and Strategic
Meeting the individual needs of many different chair users can be a challenge, but the Diffrient World by Humanscale is an all-around winner. Designer Niels Diffrient set out to create the most minimal, fully-functional task chair ever made, and with an innovative all mesh tri-panel backrest, custom back and lumbar support are integrated into a lightweight design, comfortable support is accomplished without the need for traditional mechanisms. Since the chair uses the laws of physics and the users’ body weight to offer a uniquely perfect recline, the Diffrient World is the ultimate user-friendly sitting experience, making it one of the best rated office chairs available.
Clean in Construction
The Kimball Helio is a staff favorite for the best rated office chair because it provides freedom of movement and adjustable comfort that is seamlessly integrated to eliminate visual disruption. Refined options like contrast seat stitching and premium casters with polished accents serve up sophistication, and elevate the durably constructed back support created with cross-woven nylon. This provides excellent ergonomic lumbar support while maintaining the crisp, clean lines of a light-scale design.
Evolution and Ergonomics
Business today is evolving faster than ever, and the Lavoro by National manages to merge comfort, design, and functionality for the workspace you have today and the one you’ll need tomorrow. The Lavoro boasts an impressive array of features; the synchro tilt mechanism with infinite lock and slide seat options provide extreme ergonomic support, available conference arms are sleek, height adjustable and inviting, and with back options in both mesh and upholstery, the Lavaro offers great design freedom in height and style while maintaining an excellent price point. Lavoro also offers complementary task stools and guest seating, making it a great option for streamlined selections.
Action-Packed and Comfort-Backed
When inspiration drives innovation, the result is the Sitonit by Hexy™. The Sitonit engineers ergonomics right into the frame, and with a hexagon core to create natural support, there’s no need for external lumbar controls. High-performing mesh fuses with the extra-wide backrest seamlessly, making it the perfect selection for high-energy environments requiring the support of quality comfort and a top pick for best rated office chair.
