When will their stock be coming back? Or when they will come back. Will the price still be 1550SGD?

Seems like they have gone AFK...

that price is not final...
not fully loaded, delivery and CC charge add up about $1800+ if i not wrong.

Thanks!

Just saw the Haworth Fern potential MO.

I tried the Leap v2, Comfort Genidia, Comfort Classic, and the Aeron.

And I thought I was super set on the Aeron, till I saw the Fern MO...

Is Fern more like Leap or Aeron. the Leap v2 was not the best for my back. Not like Aeron which was pure comfort as soon as I sit down...

some people take few days to get used to aeron.
if you like it then just go for it else you might regret in future.
the chair will stay with you for a long time

It's best to arrange for a test of the Fern at Haworth. There was one user who preferred the Fern over the Aeron, but it's subjective. Once I get the quote, I can assist to arrange a test seating. Do note Haworth store is only open during weekdays and working hours.

Here is a first impression of the fern, read the comments too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gp-LDFiYVw0. From reviews online, it seems comparable to Aeron, but probably lacking in terms of quality due to build material differences. Still, you are covered by 12 years warranty, which makes it more value versus the Aeron.

Try to email them, they reply sometimes.

Got a call from the delivery guy 1-2 hours after I made payment and the chair was delivered at around 5pm. Spoke briefly to the delivery dude and he mentioned that he collected it from Pasir Panjang Terminal before delivering it to me.

Wow, that's quick. Must be damn satisfying to get it on same day as order :s12:

Fern at the MO price point does look attractive. Saw the chair mostly have a fabric material covering it? I am guessing say maybe around year 5 the fabric would wear out or color faded? Any idea is it possible to replace the fabric then?

I am discussing with Alicia and awaiting a final quote in the next few days. I am looking to a mass order for the standard Fern and executive Fern model. I believe the pricing will be at or below the promo pricing ($743 before GST). I will also organise shipping on my side which will likely be cheaper than the quoted $50 per chair given the economics of scale.

This mass order is on, so anyone interested in getting a new chair, please delay that decision a couple of days. I will probably need to gather 100 or so orders to get a good discount for everyone, so will appreciate any support you can give.

I would be interested in this, is it possible to get an individual invoice for this MO?

Unfortunately, no warranty will cover ageing of fabric. I believe it's replaceable but at your own costs. If you are concerned about long term durability, you might want to pick more durable colours. The effect of ageing will not be as apparent for a colour like black for example.

Unfortunately, individual invoice is not possible as this is being treated as a corporate purchase by a single entity/person. Be rest assured, the warranty will still be valid, you can reach out to me and I will reach out to Haworth.

Seems like there are some UMD chairs with that feature - https://shopee.sg/umdlife/4601533928

Ya, something like this. Will check them out.

Thanks for the link!

Butt is okay since cushion, not hot.. Back is definitely airy.. If you are tall and sit very straight and like to back stick onto the backrest, take note the back support will probably end just below your shoulder blade..

Is seat cushion ok when not working from home wo ac? Material is similar to any padded fabric office chair?

Xtra ran a free trial of the Aeron over National Day, anyone booked a slot with them?

Usually these companies provide substantial corporate discounts if you can reach a certain level of volume or quantum. I am not sure if that will take 100 orders or 20, but a larger order will allow me to negotiate a more substantial discount. I am planning to identify interest in both tiers the more basic black promo model and the higher-end executive model to see if I can achieve a certain quantum should the quantity target not be met.
