For a workplace at home, Stiftung Warentest, a German consumer organisation and foundation involved in investigating and comparing goods and services, tested thirteen swivel chairs with armrests and synchronous mechanisms. The Nowy Styl Group @-MOTION convinced the experts: with the overall 'good' score (1,9) in the quality rating, the chair was awarded the "best office chair" title. From the direct competition, @-MOTION stood out above all thanks to its "best handling" feature. The foundation awarded @-MOTION the "Practical Test Winner" title as well.
A look at the assessment criteria
What was tested? Based on the current European standards and requirements, Stiftung Warentest foundation tested the desk chairs precisely for seating comfort, durability, handling, safety, pollutants, marking and equipment/technical features.
"Practical Test Winner"
The Foundation awarded the Nowy Styl @-MOTION the individual "Practical Test Winner" title. As the only chair of all the examined desk chairs, @-MOTION received the 1.0 grade in the "marking" and "best handling" categories. The jury recognised its advantages, such as "being easy to fit and adjust", "very durable and gentle-to-the-floor castors", "adjustable lower back support" and "a soft, adaptable seat cushion."
