Why We Needed So Many Aeron Chairs
There’s always a need to get bigger offices especially when some of our clients have opened a new headquarters office or satellite location in Singapore.
Herman Miller Aeron chair is always the most requested ergonomic task chair our clients require.
Statistics have shown that backaches are one of the highest claimed ailments in an office environment which costs billions of dollars of claims. This explains why many big corporates would choose to work with Herman Miller for their office chairs which have a sound reputation as they are designed with orthopedics, with patients in mind.
Choosing the Aeron Chair Model
After substantial research, we considered options like Steelcase, Haworth, Hinobi, Ergoworks, Sihoo, but most of those options are not ergonomically designed based on research. As such, we went with the safe choice and selected the Aeron chair as the most recommended options when clients require us to furnish their offices. The quality is guaranteed.
Seeking Adjustability, Why the Remastered Aerons are the best options
Most staffs shift positions frequently, and the Aeron has full adjustable ergonomic settings toprovide flexibility. In the latest ergonomic research, it’s found that movement is critical to improve blood circulation. This is why the remastered Aeron chair was designed to take over the Classic Aeron chairs which we have fully replaced. The older Herman Miller Aeron chairs were excellent product, however, it has a rigid design, which users found discomfort especially in the leg and lower lumbar area. The Remastered Aerons are more adaptive to the human body, with the mesh softer for more comfortable sitting. We do not miss the Classic Aerons which were phased out and we have sold them off to liquidators and have found the Remastered Aerons to be better performing in comfort and ergonomic values.
