barokah. Home Office. April 28th , 2017.
You spend hours at a time at your desk, so hopefully youre sitting in a comfortable chair. If not, it might be time for an upgrade. This week, we wanted to know which office chairs you thought were the best of breed, either because they offer great value, great comfort, or great ergonomics. Here are the top five, based on your nominations. Earlier in the week, we asked you which office chairs you thought were the best of breed—the ones you suggest to anyone with a home office or who just spends a lot of time at their desk. We tallied up those nominations and picked out the top five in the category:
Herman Miller Embody The Embody, Herman Miller next generation office chair, was designed by one of the original designers of the Aeron. It takes a more modern approach, and hones in on ergonomics and full-back support. Any complaints about the Aeron ergonomics were largely addressed in the Embody, as it back can be independently adjusted and moved separately from the base and arms of the chair. Its still a pricey model, running retail between $1000 and$1500 depending on the finish, color, and fabric you choose, but it s easily one of the most comfortable chairs you ever sit in. The back conforms to your shape using what Herman Miller calls "Pixelated Mesh, with multiple points of flexibility all along the length of the chair back. Some people complain the Embody has subpar lumbar support due to its spine-like back, and its controls and settings are a bit more complicated than the Aeron, but—full disclosure—as someone who owns one, it the best chair Ive ever owned.
If you’re anything like me, you love looking at photos of large open plan office spaces. For some reason the symmetry of the repeating desks, lamps, chairs, and rows is really pleasing to the eye. I work in a small 4-person office, which is technically an open layout, but if you saw a photo of it it just wouldn’t have the same effect. While I do understand that open plan workspace layouts are not for every person, every company type, or every office – but whose to say we can’t look at some inspiring photos of them? Here are a few of my favorites, which for the most part are larger applications of open plan design. Aeria Games Berlin-based gaming company Aeria Games uses a large, light-filled open office space for their main work area. Rather than using prefabricated desks, the company opted to fill the space with over hundreds of custom tables. Adjacent conference spaces are available if the need arises. Hudson Rouge luxury brand advertising agency Hudson Rouge uses a bright, open plan office space. The designers explain of the space, “The main workspace is an open-plan studio focused around formal and informal meeting and collaboration areas.
