A while back, the folks here at Smart Furniture were curious about Herman Miller’s Embody Chair and how well it would affect their everyday work environment — so what better way to figure it out than to just sit in one! I was happy to take the opportunity to sit on Embody for one week and write about my thoughts. Here’s day 5 of our Embody Chair review.
Today I adjusted the Embody’s armrests lower so that my elbows wouldn’t rest on them as I typed. I wanted to see how the chair would perform without them (and also wanted to find out if I liked it better). It was comfortable enough that I think I’ll start out tomorrow like that as well. We’ll see.
There’s a huge range of armrest height adjustment on the Embody Chair. That, coupled with the in/out motion of the arms themselves, makes the chair immensely adjustable. It’s designed to be, and functions as, a chair for all sizes. Now the only thing left to come up with is a chair that has a memory so that multiple users can program it to return to their preferred positions at the touch of a button. The Embody’s adjustability is user-operated, but still easy and wide-ranged.
