You spend a lot of time sitting throughout the workday. Doesn’t it make sense that your office chair should provide you with the personalized comfort and support you need, so you can get down to business? That's what ergonomics is all about.
With over three decades of knowledge and research behind our office chairs, Haworth understands sitting and how to support people at work. Our commitment to your comfort and the science of sitting is grounded in our history of strong global design, engineering, and manufacturing—and our ergonomic expertise. Since 2004, we’ve partnered with the Human Performance Institute at Western Michigan University to generate more than 5.5 billion pressure mapping data points. We use this scientific data to design and engineer chairs that deliver comfort and ergonomic support for as many people as possible. Ergonomic office chairs require a range of adjustability options, from chair height to lumbar support, so you can get into comfortable postures easily and continue to make adjustments throughout the day. In Haworth's chair development process, our research focuses on the user, resulting in intuitive, easy-to-operate chair controls - because if they're not easy to use, people won't use them.
Haworth seating is science-based design for your body—to support you, no matter who you are or where you work.
