Searching for that perfect office chair can bring up a minefield of choices. Some are designed with adjustability in mind and some with the aesthetics in mind. The Duramont Ergonomic Office Chair is definitely designed with ergonomics in mind, or the comfort and support of the chair.
Since this is a product that you will be spending a lot of time with, when you are sitting working at a desk for a prolonged period of time, the ergonomics may be important to you.
Below you will find our review of this product based on some important categories that we have chosen for office chairs.
The Duramont Ergonomic Office Chair is a chair that makes a simple statement. The silhouette is not dissimilar to other office chairs; however, it does have the interesting feature of a completely mesh back panel, making the framework visible from all angles.
This gives the chair a striking visual, elevating it from the normal outline of an office chair. The majority of the chair is black with a contrasting silver metal wheelbase that complements the overall aesthetic of the office chair.
Overall, the appearance of the chair is smart and understated. While also being interesting to look at, it has a simple enough design that it will fit into any home or work office environment.
The Duramont Ergonomic Office Chair has a padded seat covered in mesh that makes the chair breathable, meaning you can stay cool in any high stress work situation.
The back panel is also covered in this mesh, so no matter how long you are spending sitting at your office desk, this chair allows cool air to circulate through the chair to avoid unwanted back sweat.
There is lumbar support for your lower back built into the chair. This means you can work while being assured that your lower back will not suffer the prolonged workday. This lumbar support is visible from the front of the chair since the back is mesh. It is adjustable via the dial on the back of the chair.
The headrest attached to the chair is also padded for extra comfort when taking a rest from the busy workday.
When it comes to adjustability, the Duramont Ergonomic Office Chair covers all of the features that you would want a standard office chair to.
The back panel of the chair can be reclined to 120-degrees, giving you the opportunity to have short relaxing breaks in between your busy work schedule.
The armrests are padded for extra comfort and are adjustable: you can move them up and down and even change the distance between them.
These adjustable features are great for changing this chair to suit your needs, meaning you can even change the armrests throughout your workday to alleviate pain in wrists when typing.
The headrest being a separate piece means it is adjustable height and the tilt compared to the back of the chair.
The classic office chair feature of being able to adjust the overall height of the chair is achievable by using the lever that operates the gas lift. This will change the height of the seat in relation to the ground.
The Duramont office chair also has adjustable lumbar support that you can alter throughout the day to accommodate for any aches and pains that you have in your lower back due to a busy work schedule.

This chair would give any office a boost of modern vibes. The wheelbase is comprised of a silver steel which contrasts well against the black of the rest of the chair. Since this silver detail is very visible, as is the framework, the design aspects of them are well thought out and look sleek.

Frequently Asked Questions
Here we have brought together some frequently asked questions that prospective customers may have, we hope that they help:
How big is the actual seat of the chair?
The depth of the seat of the Duramont Ergonomic Office Chair is approximately 23.6 inches, and the width is 26 inches. The depth does include the space that the back panel of the chair takes up, so keep that in mind. That would make the depth actually a measurement of around 21.5 inches.
Are the armrests comfortable?
The armrests are somewhat padded, so provide some comfort, some buyers have reported them to be a little hard. However, this is more of a personal preference thing. It would be worth thinking about whether a very cushioned armrest is something that is important to you.
Is the mesh on the whole of the chair?
The mesh material that makes up all of the back panel of the chair is also used to upholster the seat of the chair so that the chair’s ergonomic feeling is cohesive throughout. This also makes the chair look smarter. The mesh is not used for the padding of the armrests, however. It is used for the headrest too.
What is the adjusting knob on the underside of the chair?
The dial on the underside of the chair is there for the feature of tension adjustment when you are rocking back on the chair. This allows for a slight rock when you are sat working at your desk. Altering the dial on the underside of the chair will alter the pressure at which you need to lean. The chair will give some resistance back depending on which setting you set the dial to throughout the day.
The Duramont Ergonomic Office Chair has the overall aesthetic of a clean cut, sleek office chair. Black fabric and silver hardware are a classic color combination, so this chair will fit right into a home office. But the overall design of the chair is not completely run-of-the-mill.
