ErgoChair Plus office chair: Apple employee approved (apparently)

This chair provides a clever skeletal back support and fresh colours, but its arms are a little unwieldy.

Our Verdict

The Autonomous office chair is a neat little addition to the over-crowded world of ergonomic thrones, with a Herman Miller Aeron-like skeletal back structure, at a fraction of the price of the original. But that's not all it offers – it's light, bright, and sits well on the firmness/comfort spectrum. If you're looking for a premium option, look elsewhere, but for a decent quality chair that does the basics and a little more, this is worth a purchase.

For

  • Looks great
  • Firm yet comfortable

Against

  • Back support is lacking
  • Slightly rickety arms

There are many ergonomic chairs out there that excel at support, or go all in on style, but few hit both nails on the head like ErgoChair Plus. It's a fairly priced office chair with decent support and a nice selection of colours on what is a pretty unique-looking design. What's not to like?! 

Well, I guess that depends if you require top-end ergonomic lumbar support, because if you do, this is not the chair for you. There are also a couple of niggles that I have, after sitting on the chair for some weeks, but the ErgoChair Plus office chair just has a nice character to it. And it's a touch of genius by Autonomous's marketing team to proudly advertise that it is 'Bought by 300+ Apple employees'.
