Chair
« on: Fri, 09 September 2022, 08:05:36 »
I'm after a chair for home office - I now work from home permanently so need a good chair.
I'm a heavy boy, so need something strong but also ergonomic. I suffer from coccyx pain, so it has to be ergonomic in this "area":)
I'm looking at Herman Miller Mirra 2 right now, not as expensive as Aeron, but has all the adjustments etc

What do you guys use and do you like it?
What would you suggest, recommend?

Adjustable lumbar support is important

I really like the Aeron as I got mine for a steal at around $200. If you can find a good one used with the PostureFit (updated lumbar support), it'll probably be the last chair you ever need to buy!

That is a steal, fortunately they can be found in this range fairly often but you need to keep an eye out constantly for these deals (one of the many reasons I lurk sales threads and pages constantly - I have a hardware hoarding problem too).

That's a ridiculous price. I bought a decked out remastered version at full price and I still feel it is a good deal. It will outlive me. The lumbar support hurts my back though, so I took that off.

Ended up with Herman Miller Mirra 2 Triflex.
Nice one :)

First, it's essential to make sure the chair you choose is adjustable in multiple ways, including the height, tilt, and lumbar support. Ideally, it should have adjustable armrests as well.

The seat depth and width are also important to consider. Make sure the chair is wide and deep enough to provide enough support for your body, but not too wide that it impedes movement or circulation.

The material of the chair is also important. Leather or vinyl may be more comfortable for some people, but it may not breathe as well as mesh or fabric chairs, leading to sweating or discomfort over time.

It's also essential to look for a chair with good reviews and a warranty to ensure its durability and longevity.

Regarding your specific question, the Herman Miller Mirra 2 is a popular choice for an ergonomic office chair. It has adjustable lumbar support, and the mesh backrest is designed to provide ventilation and support. However, it's essential to try it out before purchasing to ensure it's the right fit for you, especially if you have specific needs due to coccyx pain.

Other options to consider include the Steelcase Gesture, Humanscale Freedom, or the HON Ignition 2.0. It's always best to try out different chairs in person or order from a retailer with a flexible return policy to ensure you get the best fit for your body and needs.
