I've written about the environmentally friendly aspects of the Herman Miller Chair before, but I would probably never buy one for home because of the cost and size. The Cinto, by the Humanscale Design Studio, offers similar ergonomic features but in a smaller, simpler and most affordable package...
I've been looking for a good home office chair for awhile now, but haven't been happy with those offered at regular office supply stores because they're generally not attractive and not very green.
In my opinion, the Cinto looks pretty good, is 100% recyclable, and claims ergonomics. While it's not cheap, it's much more affordable than some of the other designer options from Humanscale and Herman Miller. Prices start at $215, and add $50 for arms and $25 for the must-have casters. I love anything with wheels!
From their website, here are a few of the chair's features:
- Proprietary belt design offers backrest flex and lumbar support
- Unique surface cuts on the seat pan distribute weight and ease pressure points
- Available armless or with fixed arms
- Available with a cantilever base, or with four legs on either casters or glides
- Stacks eight chairs high without cart
- With optional storage cart, stacks 15 chairs high
- Backrest handle for easy transport
- Made of steel and polypropylene with an elastomer belt
- Available in a variety of colors
- 100% recyclable
- Lifetime warranty
