Desktop Chair Roundup - Ergonomic Chair
 
Currently, I am looking for a really good and solid ergonomic chair, and basically spoilt by the choices we have in the market. Ideally I am trying to keep the budget below 2000ish, but am still open to choices. The choices I have in mind are as appended below:

[1] Herman Miller - Aeron - tested at xtra feels good but expensive at 1700 with full configurations
http://www.hermanmiller.com/products...on-chairs.html
http://www.hermanmiller.com/content/...n_chair_3h.jpg

[2] Haworth Zody - dropped

[3] Okamura Contessa - need inputs to find and test
http://www.okamura.jp/en_eu/products...ssa/index.html
[img]http://www.okamura.jp/en_eu/products/seating/contessa/img/contessa_detail03.jpg[.img]

[4] Okamura Baron - dropped

[5] Ergohuman V2 - definitely feels better than Aeron at 600 bucks
http://ergohuman.com/ergohuman-v2-ch...rame-and-mesh/

Lai Lai, need help and recommendations to save my backside from the pain. All inputs are welcomed.

I find that this chair very low. If only the maximum height is higher, then it would be more comfortable. The left arm rest gets loose very easily. Have already replaced the handle once. But now it's loose again. Think need to replace again..

Might be looking for new chair.

what do you mean by the aeron vs ergohuman v2 comparison? if price wasn't a factor, the ergohuman v2 still feels much better?

Ergo feels better, love the lumbar support, but the legs doesn't look that sturdy.
Aeron has size c which is larger, but at 1.5k without good headrest and lumbar support is a turn off. Have yet to try contessa, but I have already contacted the agent for trials.

sacredrays 24-08-2015 06:41 PM

sounds interesting.. will wait your updates..

are you big size? i actually would prefer a smaller sized chair (taking aeron as reference, size b) because my thighs not that long.. :s13::s13:

Then Ergohuman v2 would be good for u. To be fair I am suffering from the conundrum that the more expensive chair will be better lol. Well Aeron has 12 years warranty after all.

Anything around the 3-400 range usually ok.
Make sure they are heavy.

Is there any squeaking sound? Mine will start to squeak and the hydraulic lift mechanism fail to stop the chair from slowly sinking. But mine is the cheapo sub $100.

Those leather dx chair is more for cold countries. Our climate is bad for those.
Ergo chairs allows ur butt not to feel pressure points and mesh is really for the win. Hopefully this agent replies me for the contessa so I can go try one day and buy them.

i own an Ergohuman V2. nv try the HM bcos exceeded my budget. I would say the chair elevated my backpains from those plastic chairs. Helps that it is very adjustable too. slight regret is choosing the bigger sized one as arms sometimes cant rest properly on armrest. if possible, i would suggest u ask them if can include the extended footrest and get it together with your chair. used for 3 years plus and still very sturdy with no signs of defects. mine is the fully black mesh model.

I tested the Ergohuman at Apres, very solid chair. Can I check where you got yours and what is the pricing?

i got it at Apres too. I went down during lunch time to test the chair. Was quite impressed with the showroom and the number of chairs they have. Also tested almost all before i decided on this. I made an appointment before i went down though and was quite surprised the MD personally briefed me on how to choose a good ergonomics chair. Made a deposit on the spot. Pricing was 700+ (can't recall exact figure). Tink the chair have 10 years warranty too. Btw, the mesh doesn't sag after prolonged usage.

I got the md s name card. Very earnest fellow. I think I will buy from him lol. The comfort is better than Aeron in my opinion as the lumbar support is solid.

sacredrays 25-08-2015 02:25 PM

when you bought it? so now lowered price liao? (600+?) tempting sia... :s13::s13:

yup agree. u can adjust the lumbar support height to suit ur lumbar position. works well when u decline the chair too. i use the chair as it is with no other support/cushion and can sit for few hours per session without any pain/discomfort.

additional info. iirc, think the price is inclusive of delivery and can do COD. they will deliver to you wrapped in plastic protectors and fully assembled. just roll into your room and use. I was late for around 15 mins and told my brother to pay them first but they very kindly waited until i am back and inspect the chair before they left. not trying to promote them or anything but the overall process and experience was very pleasant.

will try HM when this chair fails or cant be used. heard good reviews of it too.

Mikiberry 25-08-2015 02:31 PM

Contessa chair is 1200. Wide headrest is 310. Decisions to make lol.

Aeron lumbar support is more passive. I don't really like it. What draws me is the design of the chair lol. Oh and seat is solid.

wizardundo 25-08-2015 02:48 PM

I just bought the Ergohuman V2 like 2-3 months ago. Total pricing inclusive of delivery and assemble ($609/- [includes GST]). *This is just the default full mesh chair itself without the leg rest.* I was told that V1 and V2 had the same pricing whereas V2 is the newer model.

If you had compare their "V2" to the original V2 as introduced on the website, you will noticed a few differences.



1) Handle bar is different (same old V1 plastic handle)
2) Black plastic cover under seat (same plastic cover instead of revealed metal parts)
3) The seat adjustments (Using 3 in 1 trigger instead of 3 individual controls)
4) The tension control is turning knob instead of crank turning

Basically I would that the model feels like V1 plus instead of V2. I think I also read somewhere that says that the real V2 version is not release in SEA.

Anyway, I tested the chair and feel that lumbar support was there, the mesh seat is quite comfortable. The chair was much much cooler than my previous leather chair.

Overall, I like the chair but It does makes some noise if you keep shifting it around. :s13:

P.S. This is the most expensive chair I've owned so far, as I've not tried others (like Herman Miller or similar expensive brand), I was not able to compare the effectiveness of the ergonomic feature of such chair. Except that it is way better than the previous $300+ I used to have. :o


You can try it out at the showroom, Apres No.9 Harrison Road #06-01 Singapore 369651. Tel: 67410009

Mikiberry 25-08-2015 07:09 PM

Mhmm it looks too similar to the v1.
Does ur chair Manual indicates otherwise?

ginseng1 25-08-2015 07:18 PM

I've tried the Ergo and HM Aeon.


End up I bought the MARKUS Swivel chair from IKEA for $399.

Price has dropped to $299.

Got 2 sets.

Lumbar support and good for big size people.


Cheap and good.

Koenig168 25-08-2015 10:02 PM

You can't tell how good or bad the Herman Miller Aeron is just by sitting on it. Please let me explain.

The Aeron is an ergonomic chair. It is designed to keep your spine straight. To do that, you first start with the right frame. The frame comes in three sizes (at the time I bought it), depending on your height. You then adjust the various levers for height, tilt etc until the chair is customized to your liking. To sit on the Aeron, you have to move your butt all the way back until the lumbar support is nestled against the small of your back. (This is why the frame size is important. Too big and your knees will not hang over the edge nicely.) This way, you will be sitting in the correct posture with a straight spine.

Koenig168 25-08-2015 10:06 PM

By lumbar support, I mean this.

http://i1058.photobucket.com/albums/...ps7obnbxex.jpg

The Aeron has two types of lumbar support - the horizontal type which is useless (in my opinion) and the butterfly-shaped one in the above pic.

While I can't comment on the other chairs in the OP, I have used the Aeron for years and have two of these at home.
