With working from home here to stay in 2022, OnOffice rounds up five ergonomic chairs that help make your WFH space more comfortable
As many of us are still working remotely from home, OnOffice selects five office chairs that are made with ergonomic comfort in mind. Read our full selection below.
1. HÅG Tion by Flokk
Flokk’s new HÅG Tion is the brand’s most sustainable chair to date. The product was realised by the Flokk in-house design team, and three revered design studios: Oslo’s Anderssen & Voll; Swiss designers BIGGAME; and London-based Norwegians Hunting & Narud. Suited to even the most compact of home-working set-ups, the chair features the brand’s trademark HÅG inBalance movement mechanism, an ergonomic feature providing comfort while encouraging movement. As part of Flokk’s ongoing mission to push the boundaries of sustainable design, HÅG Tion is made with energy-efficient processes using recycled and renewable materials – including 94% post-consumer plastics to form the seat and backrest shells and 97–98% recycled aluminium for the base and optional armrests. flokk.com
2. Rookie Chair by Vitra
A favourite of Lee Jones, leading workplace and ergonomics consultant for Wellworking, who shared 5 tips to help you choose the right office chair in OnOffice 156, Autumn 2021, the Rookie Chair by Vitra is small, agile and simple. Designed by German industrial designer Konstantin Grcic for Vitra, the chair is an ergonomically designed and stylish piece of design that helps make working from home more comfortable. Providing comfort and adaptability, Rookie is highly flexible, with both the seat and backrest being height-adjustable. In addition to the classic functions of a task chair, other ergonomic features are incorporated into Rookie’s clever design, with the backrest flexing slightly when pressure is applied, while the front edge of the seat is extremely pliant. vitra.com
3. Variable Plus by Varier
Norwegian furniture company Varier has made its name by creating ergonomic chairs that encourage us to move while we sit. For more than 40 years, the brand has focused on textures, colours, materials and shapes, as part of an ethos that’s aimed at making our lives healthier, more sustainable and comfortable. Today, that ethos of relaxation and productivity is made clear in the form of the new Variable Plus. Featuring an upholstered backrest, the chair offers a wider range of seated positions. The backrest provides support so users can lean further back to make the most of that pre-meeting stretch while shin cushions allow homeworkers to shift their weight forward and really focus on those last-minute tasks. varierfurniture.com
