Are you in the market for a new office chair? 

Have the current options you’ve been considering all left you wanting?  

If you answered yes to either of those questions, then the Ergohuman High Back Swivel Chair might be just what you’ve been looking for.

At first glance, it doesn’t seem very different, so you might wonder why you’d want to pay a premium for a chair that looks very similar to many of the lower-priced contenders you may have already evaluated.

Read this review, however, and you’ll change your mind. Sure, the Ergohuman Chair ME7ERG is more expensive, but this is a case of getting what you pay for. The simple truth is that Ergohuman chairs have two features that few if any, other chairs on the market can match.

Key Features of the Ergohuman High Back Swivel Chair

The first thing you’ll notice about the Ergohuman High Back Swivel Chair is that it looks vaguely futuristic. It’s not unattractive, which is a pleasant surprise, given that most mesh chairs struggle with aesthetics. However, its segmented seatback gives it that futuristic look, so there’s no hiding or disguising it, which may make it a bit harder for this model to blend well with some home décor schemes.

The three biggest things to note about the above are as follows:

  • First, given the height adjustment range, this model is useful to an incredibly broad swath of the market, including users ranging from about 5’2” to 6’6”, depending on their leg length.
  • Second, the base and lift mechanism are ruggedized and capable of withstanding more weight than many of the chairs on the market today, up to 350 pounds! While this does not make the high back a bariatric chair, it also makes this model useful and accessible to a vast market segment.
  • Finally, the fact that it’s offered in a variety of colors makes it that much easier for it to blend seamlessly with your home décor scheme, whatever it might be, making this a robust, versatile design that’s well-suited to the rigors of long duration seating, courtesy of the breathability of the mesh.

Adjustability and Comfort

The Ergohuman High Back Swivel Chair is delightfully adjustable and equipped with well-implemented ergonomic features that enhance its overall comfort.

Here, you’ll find:

  • Outstanding head and neck support, courtesy of an articulating, height-adjustable mesh headrest – that’s why we regard it as one of the best office chairs for neck pain sufferers.
  • A mesh waterfall-style edge seat
  • An adjustable lumbar support

This trio of features makes the Ergohuman another great option for ergonomic chairs for sciatica sufferers.

Height Adjustable Armrests

In addition, although the armrests are not ergonomically designed, they swivel approximately 45 degrees in either direction and are height-adjustable.

Recline Function

The chair also offers a three-position tilt and lock function, reclining to 110 or 135 degrees (the third position is its ability to lock at a 90-degree angle).

Lifetime Warranty and Highly Customizable

These features would make an exceptional chair design, but you should know two more things.

  • First, while some companies (Herman Miller and Steelcase both come to mind) offer outstanding warranties, Ergohuman is truly next-level in that regard, offering a lifetime warranty on every chair the company makes.
  • Second, unlike most other chairs on the market today, Ergohuman takes a unique, innovative approach. They offer an insane degree of customizability, allowing you to personalize your chair in ways no other company can touch.

You can, for instance, order your chair with a standalone ottoman that can double as a low work table or with an articulated arm that can be attached to one of the chair arms and contains a platform big enough to hold your laptop. 

Both of these enhancements were designed with one goal:  To allow you to work your way, and the implementation is brilliant. Those who don’t want or need the enhanced features won’t order them.

Does Not Come Assembled

While it’s true that none of the chairs Ergohuman makes will arrive at your door assembled, we’d say here in our Ergohuman Chair Me7erg review that the company does an excellent job on this front. The High Back Swivel Chair only consists of a few pieces that can be snapped or screwed together in a matter of minutes

It will probably take you as long to get the chair out of the box and separate and sort the pieces as it will to put the thing together. Expect it to take no more than twenty minutes.

Note that adding a helper to the equation isn’t likely to net you much of a decrease – it may shave five minutes off of the total build time, but this is one of the few chairs that’s really easy to put together on your own (mostly owing to the segmented design of the seatback).

Pros & Cons of Ergohuman High Back Swivel Chair

We like almost everything about the ME7ERG chair, and although it didn’t earn a perfect score from us, we regard it as an incredibly strong design. Granted, it’s not what you’d call beautiful, and more plush and comfortable chairs are available. Still, if you like mesh chairs and are looking for something almost endlessly customizable, it’s hard not to fall in love with this model.

Add in the fact that all Ergohuman models come with a lifetime warranty, and this one might be the last chair you’ll ever own. 

Yes, it’s expensive, but if you factor in the cost of all the office chairs you’d buy over the course of your life (assuming you went with some other brand that didn’t offer a lifetime warranty), Ergohuman offers excellent value. You’re merely front-loading the costs.

There are two minor tweaks we’d love to see in the design:

  • The armrests really should be ergonomically designed. This is probably the single biggest shortcoming of the model, which is saying something!
  • We’d love to see a variant of this chair with block or memory foam padding and breathable mesh or fabric upholstery.

The chair is already exceptional for long-duration seating, but this would make it even better. Best of all, neither of these additions would increase the total cost of the chair tremendously.

Ergohuman Chair ME7ERG Review Conclusion

Ergohuman is a great company that makes next-level chairs. The Ergohuman Chair ME7ERG is certainly no exception. It’s versatile, surprisingly comfortable, and amazingly adjustable.

We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great chair optimized for and able to withstand the rigors of heavy daily use. This model belongs on your shortlist.
