The name ‘Enjoy’ for an ergonomic office chair makes you like it straightaway, doesn’t it? Still, we’re inquisitive creatures and would need to know a little more before purchasing, wouldn’t we?
Well, the Enjoy ergonomic office chair is one of the stunning designs offered in the Ergohuman range and I always advise that this is the best place to start looking if you want a seriously effective chair. With autoflex zones which give lumbar support, a single lever for making many of the adjustments (including back height , back tilt and seat slide), three-dimensional arm rest adjustments (height, width and angle) and the option of a headrest, this ergonomic office chair is serious business when it comes to looking after the human frame.
The chair frame is very inviting to look at, the back support giving the impression of a tree and its branches. To me, that has the psychological feeling of growth and that’s something that is needed in the work environment. Gone are the days of chairs designed simply to sit on; today’s chairs have to sell themselves by looking good as well.
The upholstery I would go for is mesh, as it offers so many advantages. It’s breathable and thus helps to keep you cool longer. It’s longer-lasting, as the mesh is tightly-woven. It’s easy to look after, simply needing the occasional wipe over to keep it looking clean and fresh. And, as for colour, you can have straightforward black or blue, or go for a more interesting red, green, orange, burgundy, white or grey. Teamed with a white, black, or silver frame (for me, in that order), you’ve got a nice piece of equipment to help you with your job. It looks good, feels good and so do you!
What is the difference between the Ergohuman office chair and the Ergohuman Plus? Well, a good starting point will be to first look at what they have in common, then the unique little differences will be more appreciated:-
Synchro-Tilt. Both the seat back and the seat pad can be tilted, to afford maximum comfort to its user. Once the back is at your desired position, it is also tension-adjustable.
Tilt-Lock. By using the appropriate mechanism, you can unlock the back rest to recline and you can lock it for a fixed position.
Tension Control. This allows you to rock a little in your chair and the tension can be adjusted to match a body weight of up to 250 pounds (17 stones 12 lbs.).
Seat Depth Adjustment. Getting this position right means that your back is still in contact with the seat back and your thighs are fully supported, allowing your knees to fold comfortably without any seat abrasion.
Seat Height Adjustment. It’s important that your feet rest flat on the floor, so getting the seat pad height right for you will allow your feet to do just that.
Arm Rests. They adjust up and down, forward and backwards and also left and right, meaning that they can be made very comfortable for you and help keep your lower arms horizontal, as they move towards the keyboard or office desk
These two ergonomic office chairs then have subtle differences and, as we are all different, the element of choice is available to us:-
The Ergohuman has straight aluminium legs, whereas the Ergohuman Plus has a curved design.
The arm rests are black, whereas those on the Ergohuman Plus sport an aluminium linkage under them. On the Plus, they are also further away from the chair.
The latest model has a black cover over its under seat mechanisms but the Plus reveals its aluminium linkage.
The head rest linkage is black on the and aluminium on the Plus.
The aluminium frame on the chair back is narrower on the Ergohiman Plus design.
Though most of these differences may seem cosmetic, they add to the overall beauty of the chair, which encourages us to make choices. On top of these considerations, you need to decide between mesh and leather. Which one is right for you?
