Managers meeting chairs are typically specified for meeting areas within a senior exec’s office or within a meeting room suite where rooms are used by senior staff and clients. Executive meeting chairs often have slightly higher backs and use more impressive materials simply to create a mark of respect for visitors, or to set a standard that mirrors the organisations’ business approach.
Using furniture as a ‘standard bearer’ also implies a level of comfort targeted at meeting rooms used for longer periods. Higher quality fabric or leather is a vital component for long term sit comfort as synthetic or low grade upholstery quickly becomes uncomfortable due to heat retention.
Ergonomics of meeting chairs are no longer as passive as they once were. Executive meeting chairs can differ from boardroom chairs by offering a degree of ergonomic adjustment, or just be designed as a more upright sitting position from the outset.
Opinions on chair mobility have over time and meeting chairs are reguarly specified on castors rather than legs or cantilever frames.
