Two options for buyers don’t have too much money. If you’re looking for an office chair that is comfortable and offers a good range of adjustments, then either the Series 1 or the ErgoChair 2 would be a good choice. The Steelcase 1 is a little cheaper than ErgoChair 2 but not significantly. In terms of adjustability, both of them offer a good range of adjustments to suit different users. However, Series 1 has more adjustment options than ErgoChair 2.
Here’s a look at some of the key differences between the Steelcase Series 1 and the ErgoChair 2:
– The Steelcase Series 1 has a mesh back that helps to keep you cool and comfortable, even during long periods of sitting.
– The ErgoChair 2 has a leather back that provides support and comfort while you’re working.
– The Steelcase Series 1 has adjustable armrests that allow you to customize your sitting position.
– The ErgoChair 2 has a built-in headrest that gives you support and comfort while you’re working.
– The Steelcase Series 1 is available in a variety of colors, so you can choose the one that best fits your office space.
– The ErgoChair 2 is only available in black.
Both Series 1 and ErgoChair 2 are not for tall
People as the backrest height is a little bit low. If you’re looking for an office chair for a tall , then you might want to consider other options.
Both the Steelcase Series 1 and ErgoChair 2 have their own unique set of features that make them stand out and not for taller 6’0″ plus users. Steelcase 1 has a frame and the back height is pretty good about 5’10. Leap and Gesture, others options in Steelcase, are great to get start if you over 6’0 and your budget will allow it.
For the comfortable – Series 1 win
Series 1 is the cheapest chair in the Steelcase while Ergo Chair is the popular segment for Autonomous. Both of them are usually argued about the quality and the service. Especially Ergochair, you can see in many forum like Reddit, there are many complaint about the comfortable and the story about the marketing campaign to cover their scandal. So Series 1 is more highly rated even though many users don’t like it, because they were designed for average-users.
Overall about Series 1
The Steelcase 1 is a good choice for those who want an affordable office chair that is comfortable and offers a good range of adjustments.
Series 1 have them own unique back and arms. They are a bit less robust than most of the higher end Steelcase options, but it’s also significantly less in price. You can see the different between them when you first sit in. They both have similar lumbar support, but 1 offers a little bit more. The arms are where they differ most, with the Series 1 having less padding and being adjustable only in two dimensions.
However, the Series 1 the arms are attached to the backrest, so when you lean back the arms go back at an angle as well. This seemed like a minor inconvenience at first, but it actually became quite annoying.
Seat pad is fine, not too soft and too firm, but just right and it’s contoured. The backrest has the flexor live back technology which is pretty good. The only thing is that the backrest isn’t as tall as I’d like it to be. If you go all the way back, it’s very easy for recline.
-Good range of adjustments
– arms are attached to the backrest
– backrest isn’t as tall as I’d like it to be.
Overall about Ergochair 2
Ergochair 2 has more adjustment options than the Steelcase 1. The weakness of this chair is the hard structure and uncomfortable that many users said. The lumbar support is good, but after using 1-2 hours, it’s not that perfect to support your back compare to other chairs in the market.
Other way, there’s no lumbar adjustment, so you are left to fend for yourself and find your own pillow. And the armrests don’t have a lot of maneuverability to them overall. They do swivel in and out, but they don’t go up and down, and there’s no way to adjust the depth of them. The headrest is also not adjustable, which is a little bit disappointing.
-More adjustment options
– Good lumbar support
– hard structure and uncomfortable
– no lumbar adjustment
– armrests don’t have a lot of maneuverability.
– headrest is also not adjustable.
After trying out both the Steelcase 1 and the Ergochair 2, it is clear that they both have their own pros and cons. The Steelcase 1 is more affordable and comfortable, but the Ergochair 2 has more adjustment options. It really depends on your individual needs as to which one would be the better choice for you.
