If you spend up to 8 hours sitting at a desk, you need a good office chair with high comfort level and attractive design. Aesthetically pleasing, the chair should help achieve an ergonomically correct seating posture to minimise work-related stress. The adjustment options are the key for the additional comfort.
Ergonomic chairs are designed for long hours of daily work where the recommended seated time frame go beyond the normal hours. In addition to their ergonomic design, what really sets these office chairs apart is a higher number of adjustment functions.
The executive chair is designed for shorter periods of time up to five hours a day, and often comes with fewer adjustment options. The executive chair is particularly suitable where there is a lot of contact with customers or business partners, and where creating a senior image is important.
Draughtsman chairs are particularly suitable for people who often have to switch between seating and standing or who need to move a lot during their work as in warehouses, laboratories, medical practices or production facilities.
Whether you are just sitting down to reply to a few emails or spending hours on end behind your desk, the amount you spend working is an important consideration while selecting your office chair. At Viking, you can find an extensive range of office chairs that meet different needs in terms of daily usage.
While the seats and backrests of most chairs are cushioned with a thick foam filling, there is a large selection of materials for the seat covers. While the type of cover greatly influences the appearance of the chair, it should also increase the comfort of the occupant.
A mesh cover is an extremely breathable and flexible fabric, and is often used to span across backrests, helping to ensure good air circulation around the body.
Probably the most popular cover material for office chairs is a fabric covering. Not only is it particularly durable and long-lasting, it is also available in the widest range of colours. Unlike leather, fabric is a warm material and breathable at the same time.
Chairs with leather covers lend an air of elegance and exclusivity. Leather is a natural product with unique properties.
For those who prefer an animal-free option, chairs are also available with an imitation leather cover. These are just as easy to clean, and unlike natural leather, do not show any irregularities, but have a uniform, consistent surface.
Everyone has their own seating habits and a unique physical build. A good office chair should therefore have a wide range of adjustment options so that it can be individually tailored to the physical dimensions of its occupant and help to prevent back pain.
Viking places great value in offering high-quality, excellent products. This is our top priority when it comes to office chairs, which is why all models in our Niceday and Realspace ranges are subject to intensive tests and are required to meet a wide range of European standards.
These standards comprise of various factors including the seating time, load-bearing capacity, and roller capabilities. This overview provides a summary of the standards that the different chairs are required to meet before they can be included in our range
