Herman Miller office chairs


#21

If your office chair needs to handle the same high lateral G as a football stadium then


#22

With the Aeron you’ve got to make sure it’s the right size and correctly set up. At that point they are imho pretty much perfect, I just don’t have the moolah for one.


#23

We preferred these “Mirra” Herman’s to the Aerons… and I’ve been using this for a good ten years now, excellent chairs. Would recommend . Mercifully not with my money.


#24

Remember if your posture is shit then it won’t really matter what chair you buy in terms of long term comfort.


#25

You can pick those up in ‘as new’ condition for under £200. Thankfully, they are available in a range of colours that includes the ‘I was never confused pink’ displayed above.


#26

Terracotta, but yes. Again not my choice… Excellent chair at full price. For <£200 its a bargain.


#27

I wondered what had happened to my used string vests


#28

Tried a few chairs out today in John Lewis. Hope they don’t mind the chair races I did, it was a pretty quiet Friday morning.

The Aeron was OK, but nothing spectacular given the eye-watering price.

Best VFM was the John Lewis branded Lois at £129

Best overall for me was the Humanscale "Diffrient World"

£425 and I haven’t shopped around yet. Gets a big guarantee too.

Not quite in the same league but today this is my coffee chair


#30

Clearly a masterpiece of design as it has a lower shelf for parking of said coffee cup, or maybe even a muffin…


#31

Need to replace mine at home - what did you end up getting?


#32

Haven’t purchased yet due to sufficient spare cash, but it will be the Humanscale one.


#33

Thanks :+1:.
A trip to John L on the list now to try it out.


#34

I revisit this thread as I need to buy a new chair.

Tried an Aaron and an Aaron remastered, and whilst I don’t mind the mesh, I find the seat back too low.

Tried a humanscale freedom chair yesterday, but didn’t really get on with the arm rests. Tried the boss’s Herman Miller Celle and found it too uncomfortable

I am think of clicking on a ErgoHuman

anyone tried one? or the plus version


#35

Fucking poncy chairs, just get one of these and be thankful you don’t have to stand up for work


#36

I can only dream of sitting down at work


#37

Haworth.


#38

thanks - any particular model. I need good lumbar support, currently having an awful bout of sciatica


#39

As above, a Zody, though I think it was called something else then. Most other folks had Aerons - I hated them.

I’m aiming for a height adjustable gas-lift desk at work so I can stand at my work station. Sitting down is slowly fcuking my back, the shit chair doesn’t help either.
