The best office chairs from the CHIP laboratory: an overview of the best models
In order to be optimally equipped for the home office, a sensible office chair is essential. Because the wrong office chair is not only inconvenient, it can also have negative effects on your health, especially on your back. Therefore, there are a few things to consider when buying. A good office chair must be able to adjust the seat and the armrests. Ideally, they also have other functions such as lumbar support for the spine.
We tested eight office chairs in a price range from 90 to 500 euros. Our favorite and therefore leader of the ranking is the Ergotopia NextBack, which received a “very good”. Its strength lies above all in the wide range of adjustment possibilities. This ensures comfortable seating for many body sizes and shapes.
About 300 euros cheaper than the test winner and at the same time our price advice is the Songmics Mesh Office Chair. The model is distinguished by its height-adjustable armrests and offers many seat height options. Unfortunately, there are no other setting options.
From Amazon Umi Ergonomic Office Chair also worth a visit. Amazon’s own brand performs well in our test and impresses with a wide, deep seat and a height-adjustable headrest.
The highlight of the office chair Järvfjället with armrests from the Swedish furniture store: It can be loaded up to 230 kg. More than a “satisfactory” is still not in it, since some properties, like cumbersome setting options, could be greatly improved.
