Top 6 Features to Look for in an Ergonomic Chair

The health benefits of sitting less during your work day are too great to ignore and there are so many great sit-stand options available. But just as important, having an ergonomic and comfortable chair at your desk could totally improve the way you feel during and after a day at the desk. Here are a few must-have features that should be part of your decision-making process when choosing a desk chair:

1. Adjustable Height - Desk heights can vary so make sure your chair offers adjustable height to easily raise and lower to suit your workstation needs.

2. Back - It's OK to sit back in your chair and being able to customize the angle and elevation will put less strain on your back.

3. Armrests - You should be able to change the position of the armrests where your arms can rest naturally on the supports.

4. Adjustable Lumbar Support - Sitting for long periods without support can strain your spine and cause pain throughout the day. Modifying the lumbar support will change the depth and height and optimize support.

5. Swivel - Having the option to swivel will give you full and easy access at your workstation.

6. Fabric - Although seems just like a decor option, the fabric of the chair should be designed for comfort.

Here in the Farmington showroom, we have various ergonomically comfortable chairs and we love them!

Teknion Sabrina

Sabrina's design incorporates a ring-shaped backrest for both fit and flex comfort. The inner ring provides support and backwards bending in the body's natural position, while the outer frame gently twists to either side for extra flexing.
Teknion Contessa

The Nuova Contessa has a refined aesthetic, advanced adjustment mechanisms, increased strength and durability that delivers uncompromised comfort and performance for diverse body types.

Teknion Projek Conference

Everyone here loves the Projek Conference chairs that surround our Tek Pier. The chair's fixed arms, height adjustment and swivel-tilt motion provide comfort, simplify use and help to keep the space looking organized.

Home Office Happiness

Where my Homies at??!!! My work from Homies that is. We can help! What a great way to start the week, having a client share pics of their new home office provided and installed by Interscape Commercial Environments. When Bryon Kamay of the Knights of Columbus contacted us for a new home office, we were anxious to assist.  Since Covid hit, Mr. Kamay has worked nearly 100% remotely.  As he puts it, “I have been bouncing around the house, attempting to work in every nook and cranny there is, all while dodging two distant learning boys and a wife with a home photography business. I spend most of the day on audio and video calls with colleagues and partners around the country in space not conducive to doing so. My environment was not allowing me to do my job efficiently and it was taking it’s toll on my overall wellbeing.” Kamay’s requirements for his home office were having a dedicated office space, great acoustical isolation, proper ergonomics and a great value.  Challenge accepted!

Setting Up an Efficient Home Office

Whether you are a remote employee or working from home temporarily because of the coronavirus pandemic, here are a few essentials to stay comfortable and productive and keeping the importance of ergonomics in mind! Sitting all day is not beneficial for your physical and mental well-being whether you are working from home or in the office. Working from your couch or in bed may seem convenient or more comfortable but in the long run, it puts you in the wrong mental state and will negatively impact productivity. There are a lot of options for height-adjustable desking that allows you to sit/stand throughout the day and Teknion has various options like the Emote, hiSpace or the Navigate. Seating is just as important as your desking for an efficient home office so take the time to select and invest in a comfortable chair; ergonomics and comfort count when it comes to sitting. We have endless options: Contessa, Sabrina and the Projek office chairs and for a quick, cost-effective opt
