2. ACTIV Executive Office Chair

Second on our list is the ACTIV Executive Office Chair. Quite simply put, the ACTIV Executive Office Chair is designed to impress! From its state of the art design, its 3-D MESH backrest with an adjustable lumbar support, the multi-adjustable arm rests and the use of either recycled or recyclable materials, the ACTIV demonstrates Karo’s commitment to both modern office chair design and environmental sustainability. ACTIV has fully adjustable armrests and lumbar support for both height and depth to create a perfect form-fit. The frontal-pivot synchro mechanism on the ACTIV permits ‘Dynamic Sitting’ which has long been acknowledged as the global benchmark for ergonomic comfort. Dynamic Sitting is facilitated by an office chair which permits the backrest and seat to move relative to each other thereby increasing muscular movement in the lumbar region and alleviating lower back pain commonly associated with long periods of sitting.

5. Liberty Office Task Chair

Fifth on our list is the Liberty Office Task Chair. Liberty has form-sensing mesh technology, that is unlike any mesh chair you’ve seen or experienced. With its tri-panel construction, Liberty has the body-fitting contours that single-panel stretch mesh chairs simply can’t achieve. It also offers perfect lumbar support for everyone, without external devices or manual adjustments. Liberty’s mesh back is formed by combing three pieces of material to form a shirt. So its contours are custom-made to both fit and support the human body in unprecedented comfort.
