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

There are some chairs that have these design features. Knoll
Chadwick is another example. The design allows you to sit onto chair, which will sink a little, to give a feel like you are sitting on a cloud, releasing the tensions on you bum. But that chair is fabric mesh, not full fabric upholstery like fern. Best to check with them in case the piston is faulty

Never tried before, so I looked up videos to try to see what you mean.

Is it similar to what can be seen in these videos?

If it's the same as seen in the videos then at least you know they're not BS-ing you about it being a feature. If yours is more pronounced, then maybe there really is a fault. Can try recording and sending them a video so they can assess the difference. Did you try before you bought and the demo piece didn't have this?

Happened to me with the Herman Miller Aeron, both the one in the office and the one at home. I just fiddle around with the vertical adjustment a bit and the issue went away.

Totally new to this world, but my company may be issuing $700-800 WFH allowance to claim and I was thinking of getting a good ergonomic chair.

What would the experts here recommend?

This chairs look aesthetically pleasing.. from china. Supposedly an Eames replica. Option to have PU leather, genuine leather and top grain leather

Not sure ergonomic but reviews put it comfy by customers who bought haha.

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

By "hard to use" did you mean that you're too tall for it? Because I'm 1.9m so if that's the case for you, I might have it even worse.

I have a 3 months old fern and i don't have this issue. It will definitely sink like a few mm (my butt gauge) which is the case in all such chairs I had sat on.

that is correct, also considering my upper back is slouched abit due to bad habits.

but this apply only to if you lock the chair not to lean backwards....if you lean backwards often shouldnt be a big problem.

Then again best is to try out in the showroom

I had an Aeron, it didn't happen to me though. I think this issue is not that it sinks when you sit on it, but it happens a bit later, which makes it a very weird kind of feeling.

That is different then. Didn't have that problem.

Maybe cut back on the beer and fries? :s13:

Any Aeron-like recommendations? Need a secondary chair with good lumbar support. Mesh is important. So far come across Ergohuman Mesh. Recommended?

tc4237 31-01-2021 05:33 PM

Either that or ergotune or benel aeria.

Just listing the various possibilities.

winthony 01-02-2021 02:28 AM

anyone know any good fabric/seat cushion cleaner?

made a mistake using wet towel to wipe down my haworth zody's seat cushion and how it has ugly water marks...

the backrest also got 1 spot i think got one "line" of dirt mark.

Thanks in advance!!!
