Mesh Office Chairs



< Back to Office Chairs & Seating

Contemporary mesh office chairs for any Office

In 1994 American office furniture manufacturer Herman Miller produced the ‘Aeron chair’ and introduced a new fabric to the humble office chair called ‘Pellicle’. Pellicle is a sheer mesh material that covered the back of the chair giving it its unique appearance. The Aeron chair went on to be a firm favourite in America, being titled “America’s best-selling chair” in 2010 and being featured in a permanent position in the Museum of Modern Art. However, not only did this chair take America by storm, it also became a popular choice throughout Europe, with a long chain of mesh office chairs being designed since its debut.

Before the Aeron chairs debut in 1994 there was a rise in studies in the 1970s about the effects of office work on the human body. This led to ergonomics – the study of the human form and how to change parts of the immediate environment to suit our health requirements. Naturally, this led to a demand in ergonomic furniture, with the design of chairs suddenly being a scientific concern rather than just a business one.

The rise of ergonomics and mesh chair design paved the way for the Aeron chair and the Aeron chair itself paved the way for the development of mesh office chairs, such as the ones here provide here at Office Reality. Mesh has become a popular choice in office seating as it allows air ventilation to keep the users back cool whilst also being extremely flexible, allowing the chair to mould to the users back to provide comfort.

We provide a range of mesh office chairs to suit a variety of different décors. Many of these chairs have been designed with ergonomics in mind and so are built to suit the human form and support the body throughout long office periods. Our mesh chairs are built to a high standard and are available for free delivery within the UK mainland. Please contact us for any help regarding your refurbishment, order or budget. We are happy to help with any questions you may have.
