A bad back, stiff neck or the dreaded ‘numb bum’ are things no one wants to take away from a work meeting or business conference.
Ergonomics are just as important in the meeting room as they are in the office. Even though they’re not continuously-used spaces, they’re places where we have to sit for a length of time – sometimes for a few hours, sometimes all day.
Being uncomfortable doesn’t just make it harder to concentrate – pretty essential in meetings – the health issues caused by prolonged poor posture are well known.
It’s why Burgess Furniture has invested greatly in the issue of conference room comfort in the hospitality market, designing chairs that not only look professional but give guests maximum support where they need it most.
FIRA-tested, proven ergonomic support
Burgess conference room chairs are independently tested by FIRA so you have the reassurance of guaranteed comfort for guests. FIRA performs a number of tests to assess the ergonomic properties of our chairs, including detailed pressure mapping and user comfort trials. Many of our products have achieved the FIRA Ergonomics Excellence Award.
Features of Burgess conference room chairs include our unique FIRA-approved seating cushions, lumbar support, optional arms and flexing backrests.
Burgess conference room collection
Contemporary, classically styled and exceptionally comfortable, there’s a Burgess conference room chair to match any meeting space.
Conference seating options include:
Adamas: Exclusive AirComfort cushion
A re-imagining of our beloved original Turini chair and created in celebration of our 60th anniversary, Adamas features our exclusive FIRA-approved AirComfort ergonomic seat cushion, which has specially-placed seating pads for maximum support. Available in a range of frames and finishes, Adamas has a choice of four ‘sandwich’ back shapes which cover the frame, so the upholstery and stylish shape of the chair takes centre stage.
Orvia: World-class award-winning comfort
Winner of the FIRA Ergonomics Excellence Award, Orvia’s slender shape makes it the perfect corporate partner. Available in a choice of five ergonomic back shapes, Orvia pairs a fully-upholstered lumbar support back, with an ergonomically-designed multi-contoured seat pad, providing greater support and a generous seating area despite its slim frame.
