I was just going to ask the same question.

Nik, I quite fancy something with a bit of heritage and style. Are you aware of any office chairs by any architects? I know Corbusier did some really nice stuff but not sure any of it is suitable for an office desk. Any ideas, your field I think

Simon, the Charles & Ray eames aluminium & soft pad group chairs really are the most popular, famous and comfortable office chairs out there. Images below..





Can get them in fabric, leather, swivel base, or with height/tilt adjustment etc etc. Start around 250 for a very basic chair, up to 1000-1250 for a top spec in leather. The new prices are around 3500 for top spec, and 1250 odd for a basic fabric chair!

Other nice chairs would be the Charles Pollock chair for Knoll, Fred Scott Supporto for Hille

Corbusier mainly designed lounge seating and the famous day bed.

i cant see how metal unadjustable arm supports can be comfy, nik?

My work one is ace, was only about 200 quid but I like the ones where you can lean back and the chair counterbalances your weight lol
