Ergonomics is big business. Add into the mix the countless productivity hacking books, blogs and tips out there and it can feel like a minefield.
One of the easiest ways to push productivity in the workplace is with a great task chair. These are our top 5 picks for chairs that will have people working ever more efficiently.
Boss Design’s Trinetic brings a dynamic and minimalist approach to a task chair. It doesn’t require manual user adjustments and is the world’s first fully certified chair providing plenty of support.
But don’t just take our word for it. Trinetic has received two accolades for its progressive design, 2016 FX Product of the Year, and a Red Dot Award Best of the Best in 2017.
Having its own inbuilt, automated adjustment means that it can suit any style of agile or Activity Based Working (ABW) environment – Trinetic is truly one of a kind.
Another Boss Design product that is just as slick as Trinetic is Coza. Featuring a curvaceous and fluid backrest design, made in a single polymer form, Coza easily fits into modern, flexible working environments.
Similarly to Trinetic, it doesn’t require any manual adjustments. The range is stocked in Australia by P4 and can be upholstered in virtually any textile or leather ensuring Coza fits in with your desired aesthetics.
The designers of 4U wanted to bring the quality of Italian made furniture to task seating. Fusing strong design with comfort results in a chair that hits the mark in terms of functionality, aesthetics and value for money.
Simple, elegant and scientific – 4U has been engineered with 25 years of experience in office seating. It’s this research-driven approach that ensures plenty of work can be achieved in this task chair.
With a distinctive perforated backrest, Icon's punchy aesthetic and stylish detailing contributes to its desirability. Functionally, the contoured backrest follows the natural shape of the human spine making for perfect lumbar support.
Don’t let the simplicity of the design deceive you. Icon offers a comfortable, supportive seating option, even after hours of use.
A slightly more unconventional addition to the list, the elegant and pared back Appia collection by Maxdesign is worthy of an inclusion. Although not necessarily designed for long periods of sitting and working, Appia can be used in a range of scenarios – short periods of task seating as well as meeting and collaborative spaces.
The addition of Appia is one way to push a design project, showing a keen eye for quality and aesthetics. The stunning cast aluminium armrest detail wraps around the backrest and Appia can be specified with glide or castor options. All while giving people a comfortable seating option to conduct work in.
