SMART a mechanism that allows you to choose the desired angle of the backrest and to lock it in several positions. One of the most important features of the mechanism is that the seat and backrest are not connected. When the backrest moves, the seat remains fixed.
Our experts recommend that chairs with a contact mechanism should be chosen for people who usually prefer a fixed sitting position when sitting and appreciate a greater angle between the legs and the torso when reclined.
The firmness of the chair’s oscillation can be adjusted individually according to the weight of the sitter. Office chair SMART with pneumatic lift easily rises or lowers to the desired seating height. Task chair SMART with contact mechanism recommends for sitting for more than 8 hours.
Seat depth adjustment
SMART has a seat depth adjustment function. This is particularly important for taller or shorter people. Additionally, this function is particularly useful when the chair is used by more than one person. This allows each user to adjust the chairs seat depth to their own individual requirements.
The correct seat depth helps to maintain correct back posture and improve well-being when sitting, the key is to know how to choose the correct chair depth. When sitting in a chair, there should be a gap of 4-8 cm between the legs and the front of the seat. The person’s feet should be at a right angle of 90° to the floor. If you have any questions about how to adjust your ergonomic chair, please contact our consultants.
The armrests of this chair provide support for the arms. This reduces tension on the arms, shoulders, neck and hand muscles. This is particularly important when sitting for long periods of time. When work is finished, the armrests can be used as a support when standing up, thus reducing the strain on the pelvic muscles.
It is recommended to choose an armrest position that allows the arms to be bent at about 90° while sitting at the desk, with the shoulder blades naturally relaxed and in a straight horizontal line. It is important to ensure that when sitting in a chair, the legs of the person should be at a straight 90° angle to the floor.
SMART is an excellent ergonomic solution. If you have any questions about how to adjust your ergonomic chair, please read the advice from the Chair Centre or contact our consultants.
Tapestry seat and backrest
This SMART is covered with tapestry fabric. This type of fabric is particularly popular because it is soft and pleasant to the touch and comes in a wide range of colours. The tapestry chairs are very easy to match with the surrounding furniture and decor.
Tapestry is a relatively durable and long-lasting material, so the chair can be used comfortably for many years.
It is worth mentioning that chairs covered in mesh or tapestry sometimes can become a favorite place for cats to scratch their claws. Therefore, before buying an office chair SMART, consider your pet’s taste as well. If this may be a problem, we suggest you contact the specialists at the Chair Center to find the right solution for you.
Adjustable backrest height
SMART has a height-adjustable backrest. Often the backrests are slightly curved to replicate the curve of the spine. The height of the backrest of the chair allows to adjust so that the lumbar region of the body is comfortably supported and there is no discomfort.
Height adjustment allows the backrest to be adapted to different people of different heights and body shapes. The adjustable backrest height is a great feature for chairs that will be used by more than one person or for tall/low people. For more information on how to adjust your chair correctly, read our blog or contact our consultants.
Classically shaped backrest
Desk chair SMART has a classically shaped backrest. This type of backrest provides comfortable back support for people of all heights and body shapes. For some customers ergonomically shaped backrests are not comfortable and sometimes cause discomfort. Classically shaped backrests are more likely to make it easier to find a comfortable sitting position. It is worth noting that the shape of the backrest is a very personal choice. If more than one person will be using this SMART chair, or if you are not sure which back shape would suit you best, we recommend that you try it out live in our showroom.
10 mm castors (for soft floors)
Ergonomic chair SMART is with castors for soft flooring. If the chair is used on hard flooring (wooden flooring, parquet, laminate), the surface may be damaged or scratched over time.
Our specialists recommend that you purchase additional castors for hard flooring. Wheel axle 10 mm. The castors are made of thermoplastic elastomer, sometimes called thermoplastic rubber, which is a physical mixture of polymers consisting of materials with both thermoplastic and elastomeric properties. These wheels are softer and do not scratch hard flooring.
We recommend purchasing a plastic mat under the chair to protect the more sensitive floor covering. If a stable, fixed seating position is desired, we recommend chair feet instead of castors. When choosing chair castors, it is very important to pay attention to the type of use and the floor covering, if you are not sure we recommend you contact our consultants or visit our showroom.

Awards and certificates
OEKO-TEX quality certificate
SMART complies with and has been awarded the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX quality certificate. The purpose of the standard is to ensure that the textile material does not contain any harmful chemicals or other substances. This is particularly important as our bodies interact with the fabrics of the chair on a daily basis and children come into contact with the fabrics. OEKO-TEX certification tests various parts of the production process, from the dyeing of the material to the hemming. Random quality tests ensure that the fabrics of the product you buy are free of any harmful or harmful substances.
Castors for hard flooring
Additional castors are desinged for hard floors (wooden, laminate floors). Castor axle 10 mm. The castors are made of thermoplastic elastomer, sometimes called thermoplastic rubber, which is a physical mixture of polymers consisting of materials with both thermoplastic and elastomeric properties. These wheels are softer and do not scratch hard flooring.

Our specialists recommends taking breaks during work based on medical research. Taking a 15-minute break every 45 minutes to move around. Prolonged sitting in one fixed position increases the likelihood of chronic pain and cardiovascular disease. We recommend combining seated work with standing work, together at a height-adjustable table! Learn more
When you buy an office chair, we often get questions about whether the castors can be replaced with feet. Of course! An office chair with feet is stable and its functionality remains unchanged. This is especially true for workplaces where there is a small, limited working area and stability is needed: shops, warehouses and production companies. People with disabilities or elderly customers often ask for chairs with feet. Learn more.
