The Buro Metro chair has been assessed by Andrew Wilson – Osteopath & Ergonomist.

“A comfortable chair with no pressure points and a particularly impressive seat. The 3 lever mechanism provides wide range of adjustments that are easy to use will render this chair as suitable for a wide variety of users.

    Stylish and Great Quality product! Dynamic Intelligence technology in the mechanism is a huge improvement to the old and tired standard chairs that are out there in the market. Highly Recommend!

    Friday story. 7 years ago I bought a Buro Executive chair. I wanted a qualify ergonomic chair that wasn't flimsy like the ones that are fine for a house meeting rooms... ⏬Last month the gas lift stopped working. Oh well... it had a good innings I thought. But everything else was still in great condition. Then I thought... I wonder if I can buy a new gas lift? 📲So I call the number on the chair... it's a New Zealand number. That's a great start. I get put through to someone in operations... that it turns out has more passion for chairs than most people have for ice cream!🍦 Within a few minutes he had photos of the chair on his smartphone and he'd diagnosed the make and model and part and said he'd get back to me. Then he did get back to me... and said we will send you the gas lift... AND send a tech around to swap it out. A week later I had a new gas lift and the chair works like new. I absolutely love when brands delivers on their promise. Buro is one of those brands.

    This is a super comfortable chair for my home office and the high back is great as I am on the tall side. Plenty of seat adjustment options for the perfect fit. My 11 year old assembled it for me so pretty straight forward. Build quality is solid with no issues.
