  • 1. WHAT’S NEW IN THEOFFICE CHAIRS WORLD?
  • 2. A HISTORY OF THEOFFICE CHAIRThe office chair has had a long and complex evolution. Theystarted to be used initially around 100 years ago when offices andcommercial services began to establish themselves. Suddenly anew breed of worker had been born - outside of the factories andinto the offices, where people would organise and file in a world ofbureaucracy.
  • 3. ROLL ON!The addition of wheels was perhaps the first real innovation thatmade a big difference to these workers - they could now movefreely between their desks and their filing cabinets, and whereverelse that was nearby, without having to get up. This greatlyenhanced productivity.
  • 4. FUNCTIONAL CHAIRSThe innovation of ergonomics was the first step towards creatingchairs specifically designed to increase productivity, and theres alittle bit more to it than just adding wheels!Chairs began to be able to move across the floor, be adjustableon the seat height and even have tilt mechanisms. The use ofergonomics has literally shaped todays chairs to have lots ofdifferent features. Many materials and shapes began to take effecton the office chair, with unique and fun designs now available.The following office chairs are of some of todays top picks foroffice furniture. Lets see who is in the line-up…
  • 5. HERMAN MILLERAERON CHAIRHerman Miller office chairs are probably best known for a singlepiece of design - the Herman Miller Aeron. This was an iconicpiece of design, first unleashed onto the world in 1994. The chairincorporated a mesh design, to allow office workers to remaincool, and adjusts itself to adapt to the shape, size and posture ofthe user - this makes for a chair that is naturally adaptable andcan allow the user to undertake all sorts of activities all day long,without causing discomfort.
  • 6. ORANGEBOX OFFICECHAIRSOrangebox Office Chairs come in a variety of shapes andsizes, all offering a good comfortable seat for anyone to sit in.Offices do not always need an office chair, but chairs for waitingrooms and visitors, which is where the variety of designs fromOrangebox will make an office look swish and modern with any oftheir amazing designs.
  • 7. BOSS OFFICE CHAIRBoss design office chairs are a good example of a manufacturerthat creates a wide range of chairs to suit a wide range of offices.The designer chair can be used for niche appeal, with manypeople desiring a retro look or whatever else - it just goes to showthat function isnt everything when you really need good form. Ofcourse, these sorts of chairs do have a high level of function - butjust not as high as it could be, with design taking more of a frontseat.
  • 8. HUMANSCALEHumanscale ergonomic office chairs are specifically used asergonomic office chairs. With ergonomic equipment and chairsbeing more widely used in offices, these chairs do not only lookgreat, but the products react to your movements and adjustaccordingly to your positions to support you where you need itmost.
  • 9. GIRSBERGERGirsberger chairs pay close attention to detail in every respect.Using some of the world’s finest materials and chairdesigners, they have come up with some of the world’s highestquality made chairs.
  • 10. GETTING THE LOOKGetting the right look for the office is important; its not just aboutfunction - although of course thats very, very important.Certain chairs give off a certain vibe - and so are suited toparticular offices if they want to put across a particular mood totheir clients or employees.
  • 11. ERGONOMICSThis fusion of aesthetics and functionality is really whatergonomics is all about. Getting the most out of your chair whenyou sit down is one thing, but with proper aesthetic considerationsyou can make the user really want to sit down in the first place -and get on with whatever they have to do.
  • 12. THE OFFICEOffices are continually changing and adapting, and this isreflected in their chairs - its something of a fallacy to suggest thattheres anything new or old in the office chairs world, becausethere is always something new and old. There is alwayssomething changing and evolving.Whether its an emphasis on function, on looks or a fusion of thetwo - youd better not blink because that emphasis can changepretty darn fast in the office chair world.
