The SPACE Seating Professional AirGrid is an interesting chair in that it incorporates many different features found in other chairs which are typically exclusive from one another. For example, you’ll come in contact with three different materials upon sitting on the chair (this is not counting the chair’s frame). The SPACE Seating Professional AirGrid breaks away from the traditional formula of making chairs by focusing less on building a chair and focusing more on building parts of a chair. Or micromanaging, if you will.
As such, you can ensure that, in terms of comfort, each and every part of your body is resting on the perfect material to optimize comfort. This is great if you’re looking for a supreme level of comfort and wouldn’t mind a sleek look thrown into the mix as well. On the other hand, this is the type of office chair most furniture collectors might immediately denounce, being that it is rather unorthodox in its construction, throwing out all of the “rules” we’ve come to know about making chairs. If this doesn’t bother you; however, the SPACE Seating Professional AirGrid might be just the chair for you.
Quality & Material
As previously stated, the SPACE Seating Professional AirGrid used quite a wide variety of materials in its make. While this may sound unorthodox, it’s worth noting that each of said materials is of the highest degree of quality. Its seat, for example, is made of high-quality leather which certainly looks the part. Its armrests are made of high-quality plastic and its back consists of a mesh built with the perfect level of density consisting of a wide variety of fibers of different lengths and widths. In terms of the actual quality of the materials going into its making, the SPACE Seating Professional AirGrid is one of the best office chairs on the market, let alone within its price range.
Unfortunately, certain things don’t go hand in hand with durability. If you’ve ever rubbed to hard against a leather couch or have even had a pet jump up, you’ll know that leather isn’t the best upholstery available in terms of its ability to resist wear and tear. The mesh on the back of the chair is also not overly durable, especially when around sharp objects of any sort. Of course, this is largely unavoidable, being that the chair is made out of materials which haven’t been synthesized in a way that promotes durability (such as certain faux leathers).
On the other hand, the chair tends to be rather durable when stacked up purely to other leather and/or mesh chairs. Its frame also has no problem standing the test of time. With that in mind, you could consider the SPACE Seating Professional AirGrid as being rather average in terms of its durability alone.
This is where the SPACE Seating Professional AirGrid most excels among its competition. Because the manufacturers refrained from following the “rules” and only building the chair with one or two different materials, you’ll find each part of the chair has been made specifically for the body part under which it sits. For example, the mesh used in the back allows you to lean back and sink into the chair to a degree while also providing excellent temperature control. The padded leather seat keeps you comfortable all day. Also, its armrests are built in a way that gives you optimal arm support while working at a desk. All of these go on to dramatically increase your overall level of comfort.
Design and Finish
The SPACE Seating Professional AirGrid comes in a design which incorporates hints of traditionalism and futurist alike. This gives you the fancy leather look everyone’s after while increasing the chair’s overall character through its armrests and back, which, when together in conjunction, offer a high-end, futuristic feel that you just don’t see a whole lot of in office chairs as a whole.
Whether or not the SPACE Seating Professional AirGrid’s warranty is any good all depends on which part of the chair you’re most worried about. On one hand, you’ll get one year of coverage on its fabric (the least durable part of the chair). On the other hand, the rest of the chair is covered from manufacturing defects for an entire five years. It seems one cancels the other out, making the SPACE Seating Professional AirGrid’s warranty quite average in stature.
The type of micromanaging found throughout the SPACE Seating Professional AirGrid’s make is certainly a good thing. While perhaps rather different in nature, this allows it to provide each and every body part with the utmost level of comfort. On top of that, it also offers a great look and a long list of high-quality materials, making it a real winner in many folks’ books.
