Computer & Office Seating
Also known as operator chairs, task chairs, swivel chairs or simply 'office chairs'. These provide practicality, quality and affordability for a wide array of professional and home uses. The range incorporates everything from compact computer chairs - ideal for where working room is tight - to stylish seats for receptionists, checkouts and other public-facing environments.
Viking has something for every requirement and budget. This selection of our best-sellers illustrates the key features to consider.
Ergonomic & Posture Chairs
With up to eight independent adjustments, posture chairs cosset your unique shape. They have been engineered to provide additional support over and above a standard office chair.
Ideal if you're often seated for extended periods of time, an ergonomic chair helps you maintain a comfortable posture throughout the working day. A full height back support chair encourages the correct S-shaped spine posture, reducing the muscle tension that leads to aches and pains.
Some of our ergonomic office chairs also use Air Care technology. Twin air cells inside the seat base distribute air pressure, offer optimum support, and work in tandem with a special backrest that helps to relieve pressure from the base of your spine. Assuring exemplary comfort for any occupant, they're also the perfect chair if you suffer from a bad back.
Others posture chairs feature an air-circulating mesh backrest, which keeps you cool as well as comfortable.
The following selection of our best-selling ergonomic chairs shows how features are added as you progress through the range.
These executive office chairs project sleek style and enhance the look of your office or home workspace. Our executive chairs are all generously proportioned for comfort, and upholstered with fabric or leather-facings in a variety of eye-catching colours. Many feature a fixed arm design for comfort away from your desk, while most include a reclining tilt mechanism for a more relaxed position. This can be free-moving or locked in place.
There are many different models, catering for different tastes and office styles. These range from the classic deeply padded designs, to sleek contemporary styles including sophisticated black leather and polished chrome.

Meeting Room Chairs, Stacking Chairs & Visitor Chairs
Meeting room and conference chairs need to be robust, comfortable and (should they need to be moved or stored regularly) stackable. Metal frame designs offer lightness and durability, while wooden frame seating provides an elegant impression and presents a warmer, more traditional image. Both are ideal for training and meeting rooms, as well as for dining areas. All feature hard wearing and fire-retardant fabric, while many designs can be supplied with or without arms.
These examples will help you choose which type of chairs suit your requirements:
Your reception area seating should give visitors a professional first impression, enhance your company's image, and be comfortable and long-lasting. To create a truly unique design that makes best use of your room, choose from one of our modular reception seating ranges and build a bespoke layout. Ensure you assess the available space before purchasing, as there is a wide range of both compact and more generously proportioned options to choose from.

The Back Care Statement
75% of the UK's working population is seated for more than six hours a day.
Back pain is a major cause of discomfort and work absence.
Lower back pain is the second largest cause of work absence in Europe.
Lower back pain is the second largest cause of long term sickness.
Lower back pain is the largest cause of disability for workers under the age of 45.
40% of the population are affected by back pain.
50 million working days are lost in the UK each year as a direct result of back pain.
It costs us £5 billion (or £200 per employee) in sickness absence each year.
Estimates show that for each person off sick with back pain, 13 others will suffer in silence.
"All of the above information points towards the necessity for seating that offers adequate, variable and flexible support which can be adjusted sufficiently to suit the majority of the workforce"
