Robert Fall replied to Rory Magee's discussion What do YOU sit on?
"Definitely want to try it, it still sounds uber cool. Just hope it's more than just cool.   If there's a chair that can be R5000 better than my current one, then it's seriously a wonder chair and I must sit on it! I just worry…"

Rory Magee replied to Rory Magee's discussion What do YOU sit on?

Recently, I've made the decision to invest in a quality chair with proper back support. Until now, I've been using a standard office chair from Game, with a pillow for lumbar support ;) .I've now had the chance to test-drive the Herman Miller Aeron fully-loaded chair from the local distributor (All Office). I've sat in the chair for the last few days and my back has thanked me for it (the PostureFit is very comfortable and supportive). It's looks sublime and you can adjust the chair just about…See More
