Naturally simple for healthy comfort: thanks to their sophisticated ergonomics, Duera office swivel chairs offer healthy wellbeing at every workplace.
Test consumers for the FACTS consumer and industry magazine agreed and awarded Duera the “very good” rating in the June edition.

The overall result of this product test, which took a close look not only at the adjustment options to support test consumers of varying heights/weights, but also its ease of use, design, ergonomics, functionality and, last but not least, its price/performance ratio, was a “very good” for Duera.

Features that drew particular attention include the highly practical adjustment options offered by the patented Klöber quick-set mechanism for adapting the backrest counter-pressure to the individual’s bodyweight. Another winning aspect was the fact that Duera is in widespread use and is at home in many large companies.

“Conclusion: the very comfortable Duera chair by Klöber offers generous dimensions and promises a great atmosphere. The office swivel chair features optimum equipment in the standard version and none of the test consumers reported any muscular tension or signs of fatigue."
