People ask us what we think is the best office chair when you are starting your company and budget is a great consideration. My answer is “one that is comfortable to the majority of the users and fits your style in terms of looks and budget”. 🙂
There are so many chairs available that it becomes mind boggling trying to seat an entire office with just one chair. Price is always a big factor, so you want to get something that will work and be comfortable as well as not break the bank.
First you should to consider if there are any specific ergonomic needs in your group such as wrist, back or hip problems. Are your users mostly men or woman or a mix? What are the job functions of your users? Do they sit and work at a computer all day, or are they walking around the office a lot and occasionally need to relax in a stretching position? These are a few of the many factors you need to think about when you are picking a single chair for many users.
To help with your decision, we at Commercial Design Control Inc. have come up with two chairs that we call the “one size fits all”.
When using these chairs, you can be quite confident that you will be please the majority of the population in your office. Special needs aside, these chairs are supportive and cover the basic ergonomic functions with a price that is easy to handle.
I like to use a Manager’s chair style that doubles as a board room/conference room chair, and a good task chair to serve your users in admin, sales, customer service and accounting. Here are two chair models that will get you started.
