We’re on the look out for office chair sports to partake in and we came accross this:
This world record breaking office chair is available here. Who would have thought that the simple and cheap Java office chair would be featured in the office chair land speed record. The 5 castor base, gas lift operating as suspension, and the solid seat back are all looking like great features now… Office chairs can be fun right? They don’t have to be just for working on 🙂
Continuing the theme of weaving hobies in to work, there seems to be no shortage of ways to race office chairs! Here is an image of the German Office Chair Racing Championship which wa held in Bad Koenigzell, where seventy participants entered to race thier sometimes unusual office chair. The course is a 170 metre downhill course, which starts with a high ramp (for speed) and features a jump… a good gas lift needed there then!
There are a huge number of office chairs entered, from custom built downhill race chairs, some hardly resembling the original office chair they began modifying.
At zoom office we are going to recommend customers wishing to enter the downhill office chair world championships begin with one of our mesh office chairs as a solid base for their racing chair, due to it’s light weight versetile nature.
