    OT: Inexpensive alternative to an Aeron ?

    Hi

    Would anyone be kind enough to offer suggestions to a cheaper alterative to an Aeron. I'm only in my "studio" a couple of hours in evening each day after work, so can't justify the real thing.

    Thanks

    The Aeron's aren't all they're cracked up to be: http://www.dack.com/misc/aeron.html

    Watch the video clips. Make sure you aren't eating or drinking--you might choke to death.

    Personally, I think that the Aeron is awful. It's way too stiff and austere... like sitting on a $4,000 ergonomically countoured park bench...

    Obviously you'll only only know what chair is best for you by sitting in a lot of different ones.

    That said, *THIS* is the chair that makes me happy... for hours and hours and hours... mostly work, and a little music when nobody's looking...

    The HÅG Capisco:

    Cushiony and supportive. Fully adjustable, to help you maintain good posture. Plus, you can sit on it four different ways, by rotating the seat 90 degrees before sitting down. The backrest becomes an elbow-rest (spun around 180 degrees so your chest is now pressing against where your back was pressed a moment ago) or shoulder-rest (spun around 90 degrees in either direction), allowing you to refresh your body by switching positions every few hours...

    The minimal backing allows you to make your way around your desk or work area, even with cables dangling or a guitar strapped around your neck...

    It cost about $600 when I got mine... may be cheaper by now...

    The chairs come with a ten year warranty, and a lifetime guaranty on the gas lifts...

    HÅG was, according to their website, "the first Scandinavian furniture manufacturer to be registered as an environmentally aware business under the EU EMAS regulations," so you can rest with a clear conscience...
