Hi guys, those who have used the Benel Wonder or any Benel chair before; how is the build quality? Would love to hear any feedback because there aren't much reviews of them online. Thank you!

Hi all! You guys are the experts here, so I thought I'd just consult yall.. What is the chair that you would recommend if I only had a budget of $300?

Thanks!!

Kitchen table chair (with backing) until you save enough for a secondhand HM Aeron or any recommended mesh ergo chair alternative by HWZers here.

I've been using the Benel Aeria since last June and it's been holding up fine so far. No issues encountered and I don't think there's any significant sagging yet as well.

You can check out my thoughts HERE.

My Markus was great and lasted me a pretty long time but I did experience very slight discomfort during extended periods working from home.

Since switching to the Aeria, I've not experienced that anymore.

I've not tried the other chairs shared in this thread but the Aeria works for me so I'd still go for it if I had to choose again. I wanted to go for some other options like the Sail but they were mostly OOS back then.

Everyone's been raving about the Aeron and I must say I was really tempted back then. But I didn't know how long I'd be WFH so I was hesitant to spend that kind of money. No harm giving it a try before deciding I suppose.

Thanks so much for responding. I really appreciate it! My only concern with Benel is the build quality and unfortunately there aren't many people here who have shared their experiences using Benel chairs. I'm intending to drop by their showroom this weekend to try and hopefully find something I like. Thanks again!

You’re welcome.

I would say the build quality is worth what I paid for it.

Nothing moves when they’re not supposed to, except for the headrest which tilts a little too easily. I wish they had designed it a little better, but it’s not a deal breaker for me.

Just a feedback from using Benel Wonder for those who are considering.

Its been about 3 months since I got it and gotta admit that I am pleased with it so far.

Previously was using a random 200 dollar office chair that wasnt exactly comfortable and caused discomfort on my back.

Pros
1) The seating is really comfortable and you can feel the cushion, on its mesh covering.
2) No more back discomfort even after hours of sitting
3) doesnt exactly cause me to sit straight but it is better than my previous chair

Cons
1) Considering my height at 1.8m its hard to use headrest especially if you lock the seat not to lean back.

The feedback is based on me locking the chair rather than being able to let it loose and lean back since I am not a fan of it

But overall I am satisfied with this purchase. Cant say much about the durability yet but there are no problems so far

Does anyone have experience with Haworth Fern's seat sinking when seated and bouncing back up when you leave the seat?

I weigh 70kg and did not have such experience with other office chairs.

Benel Qmesh cushion flatten fast and will feel like sitting on no cushion, lumbar support always drop and stay at lowest level, other parts like frame, mesh, legs, headrest are good. Not sure about other models.

Had mine less than 3 months, I find it strange that it will sink when seated. Even my cheap office chair doesn't do that and Haworth side is saying that it's a standard feature. I am feeling let down by their terrible warranty service.

Make an appointment with their sales side to try out their chair at their showroom then you can call them out for it
