Task chair, office chair or gaming chair?

Task chairs

  • The back is firmly attached and does not allow any adjustment or positioning.
  • Designed for occasional use when working with a computer at home or in the office.

Office chairs

  • Adjustable and typically allow you to position back support and armrests.
  • Can be sat in for hours non-stop.

Ergonomic chair

  • Reduce the risk of health problems such as back and neck pain caused by improper seating.
  • Ergonomic, adjustable, and have adjustable head and arm support.

Gaming chairs and sofas

  • Designed to provide comfortable seating while gaming.
  • Some models are literal gaming accessories, as they can be equipped with a steering wheel and pedals and enhance the overall gaming experience.

Office chairs have different degrees of adjustability depending of their mechanism

  • Synchronous allows you to adjust the backrest into several positions depending on the seat incline, which means that the seatpan and backrest are linked and the angles adjust in a fixed ratio. The chair matches your posture and has good ergonomics. The chair can be locked into one position or allowed to adjust freely.
  • Asynchronous mechanism means that the seatpan and backrest angles can be adjusted independently, usually with three separate levers - chair height, backrest tilt, and seatpan angle.
  • Rocking mechanism allows the seatpan and backrest move together in a “rocking chair” motion. Neither the seatpan nor the backrest angle are adjustable. They are not suitable for long everyday sitting.
  • Extreme and Hard mechanism - synchronous mechanism types designed for heavier people and very long sedentary sessions.

What else should I know before buying an office chair?

  • Headrest - ideal for long sitting, it allows you to rest your head and relieve the stress on your neck.
  • Lumbar support - supports your body in the lumbar region and allows for a healthier sitting position.
  • Armrests - choose a chair with armrests if you want increased comfort. Some have adjustable armrest heights, others are fixed. Some chairs’ armrests can be flipped away if you find them uncomfortable. Some chairs make armrests optional, so the chair is supplied without armrests and you can buy your own according to your liking.
  • Wheels - make sure to choose the right material if you want them to actually work. For soft surfaces, select hard plastic wheels; for hard floors, choose softer rubberised ones. If you use your chair on different floor coverings, choose universal wheels with a hard edge and softer centre. If you do not want to risk scratching the floor, consider buying a chair mat.
  • Upholstery - in the office, where you hold business meetings, a leather chair makes a better impression. But if you spend long hours at your computer, then you should probably choose fabric upholstery, whose advantages include better breathability.
  • Weight capacity - when choosing an office chair, pay close attention to the maximum weight capacity as specified by the manufacturer. Otherwise you risk damaging the chair and it most likely will not work as well as it should.
