Chair received today with thanks!

Can I check if I need to do anything to activate warranty or is it automatically covered already?

I will be placing the next order in the next few 1-2 days

Those who had not confirmed nor paid for their special orders(Size A, special colors), will be rolled over to later months like July onward.

Hi,

I don't see that on the Herman Miller store anymore, so i'm afraid it's no longer available.

Hi,

I've checked, we can't order that model.

We can only order those listed in HM's official webstore.

FAQ:

Difference between Hard castors and standard castors?

Ans: Hard Castors has a rubber coating for better grip and traction to reduce gliding from chair. Recommended for those who likes to lean back.

Headrest's difference?
Ans: Please check out:
http://deluxeforums.hardwarezone.com...3-post461.html

I personally highly recommend the fully adjustable mesh headrest.


Posturefit VS Lumbar pad's difference?
Ans: Posture fit can control exactly how much support with a knob, it can't go up-down and is fixed in position. Lumbar Pad can go up-down movement but with only two length of depth for support

I will recommend Posture fit, it not only supports the spine but the lower back muscles.
If you slouch, the lumbar pad may be pushed out of position.

Had not heard any complains before on Posture Fit, but sometimes on the lumbar pad.

Is it worth to get the Polished Aluminium?
Ans: Actually the polished aluminium is not only for the better look. IMHO the Chrome Plating seems to make it harder to scratch or scratches less visible.

Why it takes so long to arrive?
Even if you order from the local A.D, there's a good chance you will have to wait as long if it's not available on ready stock.
We go by ship which takes a long time to sail.
It's not only able to significantly reduce the cost of the chairs.
It reduces the chance of damage as handling by air freight is typically very rough compare to ocean freight.
When you go with air freight, they care about speed, not handling.
For Sea ship, there may be delays, subjected to
  • Enviromental factors - Weather or route taken for the best safety.
  • Customs delays - Need to pay for GST, apply permits, have inspections, etc
  • Warehouse delays - Need to que to unload
  • Fumigation process

So please be patient with your delivery as there's no way we can dictate the ship to sail faster nor have any tracking to know the exact location.


How long it typically takes to arrive?
If yours is an order with configuration listed on the MO, it's typically 8-10 weeks for delivery, but we always order in ahead of time so the waiting time narrows a little.

If your order is a configuration out of those listed on the MO, a custom ordered chair.
It will take much longer for delivery and subjected to delays.
As your order has to be made specially just 1 and have to fit into our available sailing dates.
Your chair may arrive too early, or come too late and need to wait for the next available sailing slot.

Typically a custom ordered chair takes 6-10 weeks just for Herman Miller to ship to the Vendor and the Vendor takes another week to ship to the Coast for shipping.
Shipping process takes about 6 weeks.

So it's necessary to wait at least 13 weeks for custom ordered chairs.

Once it's cleared from Singapore Customs, it only takes 1-2 days to arrange delivery on our side.
If self pick up, it will be fast, probably able to collect on next day.
If courier delivery, will take a little longer as the courier need to schedule on their own.
So you can see it's never us who is delaying, a bulk of the waiting time is actually from HM.

Hi,

The model is not available as earlier mentioned.

Even if we do, it cost $1.3K for the fully adjustable Celle chair with hard castors, and lumbar pad.
(Compare: Aeron + lumbar pad + hard castor is $1409)

The Celle has no posture fit, no possible headrest option, hard plastic polymer instead of patented flexible mesh and you will have to assemble on your own.

I remember we calculated at the start of this MO and it is not worth bringing in this model.

If you like hard back from plastic polymer, can consider the still existing Mirra range.
