Lewis Mesh Back Computer and Desk Chai

The Lewis Chair will suit a lot of different sitting styles and body sizes (small and medium). Confirm seat height and depth will meet the customer's needs. If you use a Steelcase Leap, Soma A/B, Herman Miller Aeron A/B, or Allsteel Acuity chair at the Lab this chair might work well for you.

Berkeley Lab Customer Reviews

“The chair is the limited range of adjustment for the armrests. Height adjustment is possible,  may not be enough for some people. There is no adjustment inward/outward.” “Arms are hard plastic and not comfortable.”

“I regret not getting the mesh chair because the upholstery is very hot!” 

“Not enough low back/lumbar support”

“I am short, so I need a chair that isn't too high off the floor. I also tried to pick arm rests that were closer together. Although the Lewis chair was the best option for me, it's still a bit high off the floor, and the arm rests are still too far apart.”

“An adjustable back-rest would have been ideal”  “Does not have height-adjustable lumbar support” “I wish I could lock the seat back in a more upright position.”

“I would prefer to be able to lean back/recline further in chair”

“Cushion is too firm/stiff, backrest is a bit low and very stiff”

“Installing the wheels/casters on this chair was very difficult” “The assembly instructions were sandwiched and bolted in between the seat pan plastic and cushion, and I tried pulling them out only to rip the paper in half.”  “I added vaseline to the caster would make it fit into the socket better.”

“It's sturdy enough but feels a little "rickety" sitting on the edge or off-center.

“It seems to be a pretty solid chair. You can also use it without the arms by not attaching the arms when you get it.”
