Mesh. We know it to be a breathable fabric and we’ve had experience of it in the lining in some of our outdoor coats and jackets. Creating a second layer in the garment, the mesh allows the air to circulate and we feel more comfortable within ourselves.
So what about a mesh office chair?
Well, Ergohuman have embraced this fabric in their range of stunning ergonomic office seating and they haven’t just stuck to one colour either. Ergohuman has many different models of ergonomic office chair and, while you might be tempted to say “it’s only a chair”, you’d be wrong on this occasion. These chairs offer so many adjustments that, when your chair arrives, you can tailor it to your specific needs. Maybe you are short or you are tall. Maybe you have a slight frame, or you have a larger one. Maybe you already have a bad back and you want to know that your chair is working with you, (add your own name here), in mind.
So pick the chair for you.
Now let’s go for mesh and spend some valuable time deciding which colour works for you.
So, why mesh?
Well, we’ve already talked about its breathability in clothing but what about in office chair format? Remember that you will be sitting there for several hours up to lunch time, several more afterwards and that sitting for prolonged periods can make you fidgety. The flexibility of the mesh, as opposed to leather or any synthetic fabric, makes movement more accommodating, allowing you to find your best sitting position and to feel ready for commitment to the job in hand.
Colour really does have an effect on one’s emotions and wellbeing. Think no further than the ancient Chinese, and still thriving, practice of feng shui, where the right colour in the right place can affect your health, welfare and fortune. Give me yellow or green and I will feel so positive and energetic. Maybe blue or red are the colours which do it for you. Colour really is important to your psychological comfort, so there are lot of advantages in introducing colours into the workplace.
Colour can help with so many areas of working life:-
• If a company has a corporate colour, furnishing their environment with that colour states togetherness
• If the company wishes to show its eco-friendly interests, green will go a long way to displaying that commitment
• Modern office environments do now display colour (feng shui in operation, or maybe simply personal preference) and the eye focuses on a brilliance of light, rather than a dirge of indifference.
If the individual chooses their own favourite colour, not only does it have the psychological effects already mentioned but, once the chair adjustments have been personalised (seat height, armrest adjustments etc.), it will be easier for the chair owner / user to be sure that they are sitting in their own chair. To explain this, imagine a group meeting, where every employee pushes their ‘same colour’ chair into a circle for a get-together or a team build and then, after lunch, they can’t identify the one that was adjusted to their personal needs. Colour does have importance. Imagine a packet of smarties all in one colour …. .
When the ergonomic office chair meets the needs of the employee, the employer also benefits. Going for the Ergohuman office chair range, a mesh upholstery and the right colour for the ‘sitter’, you’re already ahead of the crowd.
