A cheer for a new chair? / Auf der Suche nach DEM Drehstuhl

Working mostly from home showed me that my current home office chair is not suitable for the 12 hour shift. Now I am on the hunt for a new chair that is comfy, durable, ergonomic and (yes!) affordable. While on the search I found some interesting models that look like torture devices or dentist chairs (see Ergohuman or Open Art). Based on reviews it seems that they can be comfortable in a long workday, but it depends on many factors.

Can you recommend any good office chair (which is available in Europe)?

Auf der Suche nach DEM Drehstuhl
Beginnt man die Suche nach einem neuen Buerostuhl, der auch nach zig Stunden immer noch bequem ist, stellt man fest, dass das Angebot riesig ist. Viel zu gross. Einige der Drehstuehle sehen eher aus wie der beruehmt-beruechtigte Zahnarztstuhl (Ergohuman oder Open Art). Wer moechte taeglich an den naechsten Zahnarztbesuch erinnert werden?

Koennt ihr einen guten Buerostuhl empfehlen? Idealerweise ist er in Deutschland (ohne Wartezeiten) verfuegbar.

At home I use the IKEA Verksam chair (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10074849). I find it quite comfortable - and at $179 (US) you probably can't beat the price.

Thanks, I took a look and found some other positive reviews of that chair.

I have an Ergohuman red mesh chair (http://www.beyondtheofficedoor.com/EroHumanMesh.php) and I absolutely love it. I sit in it for 1 hour at a time and sometimes for up to 8 hours and have had no problems. I'd definately recommend it. Call the company instead of buying online and they'll give you a discount if you ask.
