I already tried it out and I can safely say that the back support is quite interesting. My wife who had no opinions on other chairs we tried (HM, Steelcase, Ergo, etc) immediately took a liking to the Fern. The "piano" effect when you rest onto the back is really something you need to experience yourself, feels nothing like the type of support you get from other chairs specially at this price.
How much was the Fern in the end?

To the bro/sis say go down to Haworth to try, is it they allowed to open already?

Sorry to hear that, but don't buy a chair without trying out first.

Got of course, 3.

1. Head rest crack -> replaced within a week
2. Arm rest crack -> replaced within a week
3. Gas strut not smooth -> replaced within a week

Fabric all that surprisingly still fine, just a bit dark due to wear and tear.
That sounds very problematic leh.

The mesh can choose? I went to the see the specification of the mesh, abrasion test only 70000, that's very low like 1/3 the durability of Aeron leh. Don't know got better one or not.

The seat is cushion or mesh? My thighs always sweat when sit hot.

Wah, how is it problematic? In non-aircon environment things will wear out faster, when got crack they replaced it no questions asked other than serial number during the 11 years. Don't really see how that is an issue when they respond quickly to any faults.

You can ask Haworth about better quality surface, most likely have to top up. Seat is cushion. Maybe you should consider another brand instead or get a HM instead.

Price looking quite fair oso for the quality. Quite promising design / theory.. How about lumbar support? For the pricing, have any here tried those from UMD - in shopee / lazada? Those $250 above seem quite good leh.. Adjustable lumber support, 4d arm support...

Really chiongster, did you customize anything? I still think it's better to sit on the chair first before deciding.

Any wallet friendly alternatives to HM Aeron, HM Sayl, or a decent mesh computer chair on taobao/ezbuy? Or anywhere?

Preferably less than $175
