This review is from: Topstar Open Point SY Design Swivel Chair with Breathable Mesh Cover - Black (Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Unlike your usual rickety plastic office chairs, this is absolutely rock solid. I won't mince words; I am a large woman and as any person larger than 16 stone will tell you, finding a chair that is supportive and isn't rickety can be a problem. From the moment you park your behind in this chair, you know that there will be no trembling, rocking, lowering and creaking; it is the sturdiest chair I have come across to date.
The weight of it is absolutely astounding, and you can feel the quality just when trying to move it as weighs about 4 times more than your average swivel chair. I can lean to the side on this without the sensation the whole chair is going to tip over (the case with some of the previous chairs I've owned).
Came packaged nicely in a massive box in a limited number of pieces and was very easy to put together (took about ten minutes). The instructions I will say were quite unhelpful as they are in German and the only English language section is in a font so small that it is a struggle to read. In the end, we worked with logic and figured out where things went (and it isn't very hard to do).
The mesh is quite solid and very supportive and has a deep curve to support your spine while simultaneously preventing you from slouching and potentially causing yourself pain later. The arms and the back are both adjustable to your preference - it takes a little tweaking to find the exact position that is right for you and what you find comfortable may not be what other people in the office/family may find comfortable so you might find this a chair that will need to be adjusted from use to use/person to person.
While the chair is comfortable, I will say that the seat section of this (and indeed the mesh) are quite solid and you do not 'sink into this' as you would with some of your luxury office chairs that retail at half the price. If you're looking for the kind of comfort you can sink into, this isn't for you, this chair is designed to be ergonomic and supportive to alleviate back problems for the kind of people who spend hours at a desk/computer.
Already having spent a few hours in this I can feel a differece in my posture, I have not slouched and in return I feel much more alert and the pain I generally get at the bottom of my spine isn't as severe as it as it generally feels by now.
Am very impressed.
