Expert tips

5 things your home office chair must have

It is not the name that makes a seat an office chair. It is the features and the construction method that distinguish a good seat. A chair that guarantees concentration and performance in the office must have the following features:

Freedom of movement

Ergonomics in every fiber

Chairs like the RECARO Exo, the RECARO Nxt or the RECARO They have an optimal seat contour, which allows a natural posture to be adopted. The pad should provide great comfort and prevent pressure points from forming. Dimensional stability should be given at all times in order to ideally support the body.

The lumbar support has already become the standard in the automotive sector and should not be missing in the office and at home. It must be placed in such a way that it follows the course of the spine and provides relief for the intervertebral discs and lumbar spine. 


The construction of the office chair can be well thought out. Without high-quality materials and excellent workmanship, the seating experience will be compromised. Premium materials and expert workmanship – from the castors to the headrest – are therefore the be-all and end-all of a good office chair. They contribute to the resistance and durability of the chair.

Freedom of movement from head to toe

Every person is unique. Not only the height varies, but also the length of the extremities and the upper body. Therefore, it is essential that the office chair can be easily adapted to all body sizes and types.

The position of the arms plays a major role in people's freedom of movement. Especially when working, it is important to be able to place your arms and hands correctly in order to be able to operate the computer keyboard. With the help of 4D or even 5D multifunctional armrests, you will be able to take a comfortable position. They can be individually adjusted at the touch of a button to change rotation, depth and distance from the seat. 

Flexibility - between static and motor

The human body is not used to remaining still for a long period of time. If the extremities, spine and neck are not moved from time to time, muscle spasms and unpleasant pain will result. Thus, the office chair must master the fine balancing act between supportive function and flexibility.

With the help of the synchronous mechanism, the backrest and seat are not fixed but flexibly connected so that the office chair can follow the natural movements of the body. This makes it possible for the body to perform the balancing act of statics and dynamics in everyday working life.

Individual design

Little things like color scheme and features can be varied if the basic concept is right!
