Our Verdict

Sihoo has a knack for releasing really good ergonomic office chairs for a relatively low price. And the Doro S100 is a solid entry to the roster, with its butterfly-wing back design that supports your lower back, and trademark hard plastic and metal aesthetic. It's certainly not for everyone, but when it comes to value for money, the new Doro S100 is the one to beat.

For

  • Great ergonomic support
  • Great price

Against

  • Design is a bit much
  • Materials feel cheap
  • Lots of assembly

Sihoo has done it again. Yet another ergonomic chair with a price tag that's a fraction of much of the competition. But is the recent Doro S100 (the budget version of the luxury Doro S300) any good? I put the chair through its paces, over a period of eight weeks, to find out what this chair is good at, where it lacks, and who the ideal user is. 

I've spent many hours using and reviewing the best office chairs for back pain – that is, ergonomic chairs – over the last few years, and have a good context of what differentiates an OK chair from an exceptional chair. And though you could review a chair based purely on ergonomics – in which case the S100 would score high – there are other factors to consider, such as price, design, features and materials. Let's dig a little deeper into how the Sihoo Doro S100 scores in all these categories.
