Within minutes of switching my standard computer store desk chair with a Diffrient chair, the pressure in my back and shoulders went away! It's surprising that for such a simple looking chair, it provides the most comfort, quickly and instantly, since you don't have to spend time adjusting a bunch of knobs and levers. The mesh on the seat back conforms to your shape to give you the best lumbar support; being taller than average, its finally nice to have a chair with a lumbar support that sits in the correct spot! Due to its simplicity and ease of conformity, this chair is perfect for common area spaces, or co-working environments, where many different types of bodies would be sitting in it.
for those who sit in a chair all day.. There is no other chair...
This chair was well worth it. I purchased the higher chair that allows for vertical adjustments you can't find in another chair. The design is also a fresh modern look with a nice color accent.
Best office/task chair I've had the pleasure to sit in. Comfort, style, simplicity, colour, versatility - the arms even lower enough to play guitar comfortably. I couldn't recommend it more highly.
I spent a lot of time researching which chair I wanted to get before I settled on the Diffrient Smart chair. I wanted a chair that was well built, comfortable, ergonomic, had adjustable seat depth and adjustable arm rests and a mesh backing. This chair suits all of my needs and has exceed my expectations in it's simple but effective design. The design is also sleek and beautiful. This is definitely not an ugly looking chair. I have an office chair at work made by rival Herman Miller that I've not been very fond of. My office chair has so many knobs and buttons, I feel like I'm operating a rocket ship just to be able to get comfortable in my chair. The Diffrient Smart chair is the complete opposite of my office chair, because it's simple. There is one knob to adjust seat height, that's it. If you want to recline, just recline. My back instantly feels comfortable and supported when sitting in this chair, and the 3D mesh backing makes my back feel cool, never overheated like in other chairs. The comfort of this chair is a big plus a well. I feel there are a lot of chairs out there that throw out comfort for ergonomics. Thankfully this chair does both. Overall, if you're looking for a well made, comfortable and ergonomic chair that you want to last a long time, look no further than this chair.
