If you follow modern office furniture trends, you might know about one of the most popular forms of desk chairs to recently enter the market- bungee chairs! These chairs aim to combine the comfort of relaxing in a hammock with the prestige and formality of working in an office, meaning that with bungee chairs you get to work in complete comfort in a design that benefits your body’s natural angles, all while maintaining your professionalism and looking equipped for work. In many ways, they are an ideal combination of form and function that easily explains their consistent popularity throughout the world.
What is a Bungee Office Chair
As the name might imply, bungee chairs are task chairs that get their support through bungees that are extremely durable and can comfortably hold hundreds of pounds of weight. Even so, the bungees in these chairs bend and give with the angles of your body, ensuring that your seat and backrest will be perfectly matched to the angles of your body.
Anyone that works in an office all day can testify to just how miserable it is to have to sit at a desk for hours on end without moving. Bungee desk chairs work to alleviate some of that pain by allowing your body to move in the ways it wants to naturally. By bending to the angles of your body, every part will be supported, keeping you in peak comfort. The gentle bounce in bungee chairs also allows you some movement throughout the day, ensuring that you stay refreshed and productive all day long.
Bungee chairs also help with productivity by keeping you from overheating. You won’t have to worry about keeping your back from sweating, as the gaps between the straps ensure that your body gets complete access to a cross breeze throughout the day. The back and seat straps also succeed in keeping bungee chairs extremely light, making them easy to move around when necessary.

Things to Look For in a Bungee Task Chair
When buying a bungee desk chair, quality should be your top concern. Any model that has straps that can get easily stretched out should be avoided as you will lose all the benefits and support of the chair within a few months of use.
Be sure to also look for the kind of warranty that comes with the chair, as accidents happen and accidentally cutting through the straps in your chair will immediately render it useless.
It’s also important to look for models that are fully adjustable to ensure you can keep yourself at levels of peak comfort. Look for adjustable heights for the seats, bases that can rotate a full 360 degrees, and arm rests that can be removed or left on. This will help you to stay comfortable, no matter what kind of work you are starting to tackle.
Perhaps most important, pay attention to the kind of material that the chair is made out of. A high quality chair will be made from stainless steel or aluminum, and the quality of materials that are used are the best way to tell just how long your chair will last in the real world. Try to avoid chairs made mostly out of durable plastic, as they are less durable and prone to falling part just as soon as the warranty runs out.
