I was coerced into doing a photo shoot today so you can look at pretty pictures of me and the Mirra Chair. Fortunately, they let me pick the spot and I chose the ,Chattanooga Nature Center - way cool! I saw a rescued hawk with one wing and heard the red wolves howling. And that was just in the parking lot. Note to self: plan an excursion to the CNC.
Gripes vs. Likes
My Mirra gripes: 1) when I plop down on the chair there is no bounce. Its like plopping down on a dining chair. Well ...a dining chair with a really comfy seat made of a suspended elastomeric material. No matter what position the pneumatic cylinder is in, high or low, the chair is not designed to spring up and down when you sit. 2) the arms could adjust a little higher for peeps like me who use them as a pseudo keyboard tray. 3) You can't pimp out the chair with leather armpads and a shiny polished aluminum or titanium base. But, the base is as least made of metal and not plastic.
Melanie and Mirra leave the office
My Mirra likes: 1) Mirra was green way before green was cool. Made of 42% recycled content and being 96% recyclable won Mirra a top 10 spot on BuildingGreen's best green products of 2003 list. It was the first office chair made "eco-effectively," an early approach that ensured that everything about a product was earth-friendly. 2) Not only does Mirra ease my Eco conscience, but it's pretty too. The color options are numerous and can be combined to create something boring (for those afraid to venture outside the "must buy black office chair" box) or sexy. Close your eyes and imagine: graphite frame, shadow back, citron fabric, and graphite seat. Now open them and check out our Mirra SmartDesigner to visually see the potential you can create. 3) This chair just works for me. The features like adjustable lumbar support, fully adjustable arms, tilt tension, and upholstered back provide all the benefits I would hope for in a work chair.
Melanie meets Mirra. Melanie likes Mirra. Melanie keeps Mirra (crosses fingers).
