Their storage solutions (still including premium filing cabinets), chairs, tables, workstations and classroom furniture have given them a reputation for durability, quality, and innovative thinking. Their products can be seen in schools, offices and homes all over the country, and indeed all over the world. The HON Company has also been leading the charge for environmentally responsible manufacturing for years, remaking their building process, their packing material and their fabrics to reflect a cleaner, greener kind of furniture. <p>Environmental concerns aren't the only way that HON has acquired their forward thinking reputation. Modern office and classroom furniture must answer the needs of an increasingly technical world. The HON Company anticipated this change in attitudes, and has been producing creative tables, workstations and desks to accommodate the increasingly wired and interconnected worlds of business and education. Their desks are built to answer the needs of an open, collaborative office and school environment, as well as to discretely and attractively accommodate the wires and power cords that a wired community needs to work.</p><p><strong>Filing Solutions</strong><br />The HON Company is known first and foremost for their sturdy, attractive and high-efficiency filing cabinets, drawers and systems.

Design Story

The Ceres Chair was created by industrial designer and world class innovator Wolfgang Deisig and his collaboration with Hon. A product of intense research and development, the Ceres Chair utilizes a kinesthetic design that facilitates your movement by moving with you. The result is an office chair that, no matter how you lean or sit back in it, constantly provides support. With most office chairs, when you lean back your lower back comes away from the chair, and when you sit upright your shoulders are off on their own. Offering a solution for this all too prevalent design flaw, the Ceres Chair stays in contact with your entire back, no matter if you're leaning back, sitting upright, or somewhere in between. This innovative back design gives you support where you need it, eliminating uncomfortable points of pressure.

After developing this ingenious chair, Hon and Deisig Design set about making the Ceres Chair incredibly easy to use. The adjustments are simple and intuitive; a pneumatic height adjustment and adjustable arms let you position your chair so it's perfectly customized to your body shape. And because people come in different shapes and sizes, the Ceres Chair features adjustable tilt tension that is adjusted with the simple sliding of a lever. The seat and back are ready to use out of the box and don't need to be adjusted; they're to work like a charm the moment you get your Ceres Chair. While the Ceres Chair is undeniably a beautiful form, Walter Deisig and HON set out to provide a chair that was so much more than art; they sought incredible functionality. With the Ceres Chair they definitely found it. This office task chair succeeds where almost all competitors fail, by providing you with continual support. So while the looks are definitely a plus, they are more of an added benefit than an intended result. The Ceres Chair has an aesthetic that, while undeniably appealing, can work in almost any style office and with any decor. Hon offers a variety of fabric options for you to choose from and the simple yet elegant design refuses to be categorized, giving you the freedom to use it in any setting.

After developing the innovative back support for the Ceres Task Chair, Hon and Walter Deisig applied their creation to a piece that can go anywhere in your office - the Ceres Multi-Purpose Chair. The Ceres Multi-Purpose Chair uses a pivoting back that is flexible enough to recline with you. This movement helps the Ceres Chair encourage movement by the user. No matter where you use your Ceres Multi-Purpose Chair, conference table, desk, lobby, anywhere, it's sure to provide a level of back support that surpasses all other multi-purpose chairs. Get rid of back pain and uncomfortable office chairs and try the Ceres Task or Multi-Purpose Chair. We're sure you will be glad you did.


Design

The Ceres Chair is an ergonomic powerhouse designed to help folks that struggle with back pain caused by their current office chairs. It has a unique and uniquely functional design scheme that allows the well-padded back of the chair to stay in constant contact with your back. In most office chairs, when you lean back or slouch, parts of your spine, shoulders, neck and back are not touching the surface of the chair, which creates pressure points on the parts that are. Most of the time that's what causes back pain - the pressure of leaning back or sitting in the chair isn't evenly distributed, and that puts undue pressure on certain spots that can get worn down and worn out over time.

Not so in the Ceres Chair. This ingenious chair keeps your entire back in contact with the backing of the chair, even when you're leaning or slouching - say goodbye to back pain. Of course, that's not the only thing that this chair has to offer. It's also beautiful, something you can really be proud of in your home or work office, and it's deeply comfortable all over, with lots of contoured padding and fabric that provides relief to body types of all kinds.

This chair is built by HON, an office industry giant that made their name helping offices stay organized with cabinets, filing systems, and desks. Now they are turning their considerable knowledge about what offices need and want and what workers are looking for to the field of office chairs, with great success. The Ceres Chair is just one of their top notch ergonomic office task chairs, but it's one of the very best. It's also extremely affordable - another HON trademark.

Using our online design engine, you can really make this chair your own. Choose your color, your armrests, and more! Happy Shopping!

Comments about HON Ceres Task Chair:

I've been using the Ceres for about a month now. I have the Attire Lithium seat with Fog Ilira-Stretch Fabric back - it looks very nice! It has a cushion seat and a breathable mesh back. I love that the arms of the chair are attached to the back so when I lean back, my arms go with me. I also like that I can change the seat depth very easily to give my legs more support. I couldn't be happier with this chair!
