I've always been a fan of the Haworth Zody.  I've used it in a few jobs I've had in Oz and NZ.  Very comfortable and heaps of configs.

+1 on the Life Chair - I managed to pick one up that was being thrown away and know the NZ distributor - noticed a difference in my back over night.

Considered standing?


I have a tall desk (actually a small rectangular table with shortened legs stacked on to of my L shaped desk) and an Architect's Chair (a super-tall gas lift chair).  I'll spend half an hour to an hour standing then then a similar time sitting, switching as I feel the need.  I've been doing that for about a year now and would be reluctant to go back to sitting only.  It has not made a difference to my waistline.


I've read that standing all day is not necessarily much better than sitting all day, and find the variety is good.  I'm more inclined to pace a little when on a call (get the blood flowing) and don't have to be in front of the screen, where previously I might do a 6 hour stretch without getting off my butt.

Love my Håg chair.


Its never set to be in a fixed position, which does wonders for my back. Sitting in a fixed (and bad) chair can really wreck my back really quickly.

I've been using warehouse stationery chairs for the last 12 years or so and my back is sweet and I find them very comfortable with excellent lumbar support on some models.
