Differences Between Office Chair Types
When purchasing an office chair, you will need to consider the variety of different types on offer in order to select the ideal model for you and your workspace. With three main categories available, each comes with its own host of highly functional features.
The simplest and most lightweight model is the operator chair, often without armrests. Cutting a slim silhouette, they’re great if you’re pushed for space and seek compact storage. Slick nylon casters provide optimum mobility, ensuring speedy, easy movement around a desk or workspace. With upright, ergonomic moulded seats, they’re typically covered in a durable and hardwearing fabric that’s designed for heavy usage. Comfortable yet compact, they boast adjustable backrests for variable height and tilt, as seen in models like the York.
General Office Chairs
Office models tend to feature denser padding and have the addition of armrests for comfort. They come in a variety of guises, in leather, faux leather and fabric, and are available with and without casters. Models without casters are primarily designed for use in one area, ideal for stationary work areas. The higher levels of padding serve to make them more ergonomic whilst taller backrests give further support for your back, ensuring you can sit comfortably for longer stretches of time.
For an exclusive luxury touch, executive chairs such as the Eames Style Lobby Office Chair Black are heavier, contain denser padding and are characteristically more comfortable than operator and office models. With high-density foam padding sculpted to the body, plush executive designs are made to sink into and are often favoured by those in management positions. Padded armrests and added neck support increase their cosseting nature, and some products even offer added lumbar support.
