It’s that classic Goldliock’s moment anyone with a home workspace has suffered through. Trying to find just the right office chair. It has to be ergonomic. That is a given. For me it had to have good back support, a seat that doesn’t cut off circulation in your legs and arm rests to keep RSI at bay.
Herman Miller has done an enormous amount of research into ergonomics – we’re an industry leader in the area. I interviewed Gretchen Gscheidle, Director of Insight and Exploration, back in June of last year about her work with Bill Stumpf on the Aeron chair and how to choose an ergonomically-correct chair that’s right for you. We’ve actually made a lot of our hard work available to you here. It’s a great place to start if you’re thinking about buying a new home office chair.
And of course, it needed to look good. It’s part of your home and for a lot of us who aren’t lucky enough to have dedicated home office this chair will be in public view. So what’s the answer. I recently got an Aeron chair and have never been so happy. It ticks the ergonomics box and looks great in our hard working office/family room/guest bedroom. The nice news for Lifework readers is Herman Miller is now shipping Aeron, Embody, SAYL, Mirra and Setu for just $29. Welcome to 2012!
