Ergonomic Office Chair
The Chair Trifecta
The first office chair that doesn't make you choose between being ergonomic, economical, elegant. It’s all three, in one. Built with a 275lb weight limit.
We designed our chair to be the perfect trifecta. Then made it with materials that last a career.
- Actually ergonomic — 8D adjustable, more than even the most expensive chairs on the market.
- Elegant — with seamless design, color, straight lines, smooth curves, understated details and subtle colors.
- Economical — a third of the price of comparable chairs made by the same manufacturer.
Aluminum Alloy Base
Incredibly sturdy, intentionally heavy (to keep it from tipping over), extremely easy to clean, and stunningly beautiful.
Much more breathable than traditional furniture fabric. We selected it so your back and seat stay cool — even after hours of sitting. Beyond that, the fabric is better at stretching to wrap around your body and providing constant support.
Molded Foam Cushion
Formed to fit people of all sizes. Molded foam is unique because it can compress and provide support without becoming permanently deformed. Moreover, it gets better over time as it starts to slowly form around your body and posture.
Polymer bits and parts
We selected this light but strong material for a reason. It keeps the top lighter, so it’s easier to adjust — without sacrificing structural integrity and quality.
More than anything else, the quality of a task chair is defined by the degrees of freedom — a measure of how many adjustments you're able to make to get the chair and your posture exactly right. This chair had more adjustable features than any other that we saw:
- Adjustable Headrest height
- Adjustable Headrest Swivel Angle
- Adjustable Lumbar Support
- Adjustable Tilt
- Adjustable Armrest Level
- Adjustable Armrest Angle
- Adjustable Armrest Width
- Adjustable seat length
You may have never heard of synchronized movement before. For office chairs — it's a game changer. It's simple: as you lean back, the seat gently slides forward. This means that the lumbar support always stays in place. You will never place undue weight on your lower back.
Wide Shoulder Span
We designed our chairs to have a tapered back — because we designed a chair for everyone. Now, the broad-shouldered among us have a place to rest.
In Cement and Slate
Our chairs are available in two classic Essential shades. But doing this was harder than ever before.
Office chairs require so many different materials that it is challenging to give them a consistent style. We wanted ours to look as seamless as possible. So we had to line up colors for four completely different materials into one cohesive form. But we got it right. The cement looks incredibly elegant while the slate is sleek. Everything you expect from the Essential home.
The Technical Furniture Manufacturers in Huzhou
You might already own furniture from our creator. To design The Essential office chair, we partnered with craftsmen that have been making furniture for over 20 years. Their work is sold in 60 countries — some of their clients include Steelcase, Ikea, HON and Herman Miller.
The Essential difference — for the first time in their history, we aren't marking up their products. You buy them for the price we paid, and not a cent more.
Sold at Cost
Our chair costs $225 to construct and deliver. So that's how much we sell it for.
Steelcase sells a chair with the same functionality for $519. With delivery fees, the chair costs $627.
We've created a chair that encapsulates everything you're looking for.
Ergonomic — feel better at 5PM than at 9AM.
Economical — sold at cost well below market.
Elegant — looks right at home, in yours.
