Is The HON Volt Leather Task Chair An Accessible, Comfortable Hobbyist’s Ergonomic Chair?
The HON Volt Leather Task Chair is about as minimalist as you can get in terms of the style and shape. In fact, it would take longer to name all of the different colours that are available for the SoftThread leather upholstery than the elements of the design.
There is a simple padded seat and padded backrest and nothing more – no headrest, no arm rests and no fancy comfort features.
This is clearly designed as your basic task chair for everyday use in any situation, rather than a more high-end, comfortable executive office chair. Does this mean that it is lacking in comfort and security, or are there actually plenty of happy users.
What advantages have users highlighted with this HON Volt Task Chair?
The comfort of this ergonomic chair lies almost entirely in the use of the padded, upholstered back and that use of materials. This, plus the ergonomics of the reclining backrest are designed to keep workers comfortable all day long.
This back rest uses a synchro-motion to work with the movement of the body, not against it. There are some that would like to see more padding and curve to the back, but most are comfortable for long periods.
There is also a surprising amount of focus in the specification on the wheels on the base – as though there were nothing else to talk about.
The company sell this chair as great option for worker on the move in busy environments, with the easy glide and swivel to the chair. This may sound silly, but it is important for those working between areas in a sewing room or other craft station at home.
What problems have users noted when reviewing this HON Volt Leather Task/Computer Chair?
There is actually a surprising amount of praise for this ergonomic chair from a range of users. There is the sense that some may have come in with low expectations and been pleasantly surprised by what they receive. Because this is a lower-end, affordable model, there are some mixed comments about the longevity and general durability.
Some say they have been enjoying the Hon office chair for years, others noticed damage after a couple of months. There is the concern that too much too violent and frequent a use of the mobile base, may lead to security issues down the line.
Summary: does this lack of negative comments mean that this HON Volt Leather Chair is highly recommendable?
The product description for this chair talks about the “budget-friendly” appeal that will “stretch your furniture dollar”. While there is the sense that this is a bulk-buy item for office managers in need of uniformity through the workplace, the chair is still more appealing than that.
It is also interesting that some of the 5 star reviews come from those that use the chair and work and wanted something familiar and comfortable for hobbies and task at home. It is this familiarity, the simplicity of the design, the ease of movement and the range of colours that ensure that this HON task chair is still a recommendable option from both at home and in the craft room.
