    I worked for HM over a couple of summers putting HM Ethospace components together.

    They will negotiate on price, I got 4 for €1050 and €50 shipping in Europe. They are fully clued up on VAT & ESL if you buy from your limited & will provide the correct paper work for HMRC (or in my case ATC).

    Now we're talking. Is the motor quiet?

    Thanks for sharing. Seriously. I'm just trying to make contemporary home office life more H&S complaint and pleasant.

    Default Interstuhl Airpad

    I tried one of these. Maybe it doesn't look as good as the Aeron, but very comfortable.

    You are right. It looks tulip.

    Any chair can be comfortable when you sit on it for 20 seconds. Will it be comfortable after you've sat on it for 6 hours is the question.

    You're not looking at it while sitting on it are you?

    A bit like.... when the lights are off.

    I've sat on this chair at a client's office for a week, so I thought I'd mention in just in case its helpful to anyone.
