One of our favourite manufacturers Verco who are based in High Wycombe has just launched a brand new chair called the Max.
Technical bit coming up:
The Max is a task chair with a mesh back and an upholstered seat. The back is fitted with a deluxe ‘active’ grey mesh which provides support and adapts to the contours of your back comes with an adjustable lumbar support as standard. The seat is shaped to aid comfortable sitting and has a ‘waterfall’ edge which means that it doesn’t press into the backs of your knees and thighs. The seat has a seat depth adjustment as standard which means that it suits people of all heights. The action of the chair is designed to be left in ‘free float mode’ meaning that the backrest is moving with you as you move whilst seated. The chair senses your body weight and automatically adjusts to provide the perfect support. This makes the Max easy to use. I hope I haven’t made that sound too technical!
The first thing that strikes you about the Max is that it is a good looking chair. Faced straight on it has smart straight lines. Looking from the side of the chair shows the curved back and neat behind with no ugly bolts showing. The mechanism under the chair is slim, neat and doesn’t show too much beneath the chair. The fact that there is only one lever below also helps with the clean looks of the chair.
Simple as possible, the only options are height adjustable arms, headrest, polished metal base (I think it look’s great with the standard black base though!).
Upholstered in the new Rivet fabric from Camira the seat would look great, with the advantage of Rivet being a band a fabric which means it is in the lowest price band.
A good looking chair which is a step up looks wise on Verco’s existing Mesh chair range. The Max is simple to use, which always helps. The headrest option is ideal for managers. When I look at the competitors in the marketplace the Max is very keenly priced for such a good looking chair.
If I have whetted your appetite, there’s a great brochure available which shows the Max off. If you would like a copy please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
