Lounges, meeting rooms and visitor reception areas: How to choose the right seat

After a long period of time where most of the work was done remotely, many companies decided to reorganize their offices so that people could work safely by adopting a hybrid work style. In some cases, conference rooms and break rooms were transformed into new work centers or co-working spaces.


Shared desks and tables, seating that allows for more relaxed working, and small office coffee table for quick meetings: these new work environments are increasingly referred to as creative and collaborative hubs, reflecting the growing need to create a workplace where employees feel comfortable and have all the necessary tools.


An important element to consider is seating that blends elegantly into its surroundings but is also ergonomic and equipped with devices that help maintain proper posture. The aim is not to feel tired after sitting for long periods of time and to promote personal health and productivity.

How to choose meeting room chairs

Conference rooms can come in different types and styles. Some prefer a classic and elegant design consistent with executive offices, while others opt for a more informal environment. There are many options, in the form of operational or executive office chair variants with lowered backs.


In most conference rooms, seating is arranged around a large table where people gather and maintain a static position throughout the meeting.


If there is to be daily use and long-term durability, seating must be comfortable, durable and adaptable to different body types and sizes to promote proper posture and reduce the risk of musculoskeletal disorders.


Some of the most common mechanisms include seat depth and height adjustment, height-adjustable lumbar support (to suit different people), and tilt and swivel adjustable armrests.


Some office conference chairs, as opposed to task chairs, are designed for non-intensive use and short stays and have standard ergonomic features such as backrests with tilt locks, seat height adjustment, or non-adjustable armrests.

Welcome visitors with the right seat

The visitor chair is an all-rounder. It can be found in waiting rooms, conference rooms, executive offices and office reception areas.


Usually, visitor use it for a short period of time and unlike custom executive chairs, it has no adjustment mechanism to improve comfort and does not include ergonomic elements such as lumbar support or armrests. These chairs are designed to have comfortable areas within the office that can be used for a limited time.

Lounge chairs that provide maximum comfort

Today, lounge seating can be found in all office environments that are dedicated to relaxation, socialising and collaboration.


The length, depth, upright position and shape may vary, but the main purpose of the lounge chair is to make those moments when you are away from your desk more comfortable, whether you are resting, working individually or meeting informally with colleagues and co-workers. The comfort and design of a lounge chair is increasingly being complemented by smarter versions that are also ideal for working, with built-in plug & play.


Lounge chairs can be carefully combined with waiting room sofa or ottomans to create unique and flexible environments that can be transformed as required.
