Nucleus Work Chair
by HON

Sleek style, incredible comfort and an affordable price. The Hon Nucleus Chair's seat uses an advanced suspension material over molded with foam that is minimal in size and materials used but will keep you comfortable all day, even when you're putting in overtime. Choose from a variety of fabric upholstery options and a matching back or the ilira mesh back, a material that stretches in multiple directions giving you constant support where you need it. For a look that will make your coworkers envious, the polished aluminum arms give this chair that million dollar look. But don't worry, it's still one of the more affordable high end task chairs on the market.

  • 28.75"W x 44.75"H x 25.75"D

Design Story

The Nucleus Chair is a great lightweight task chair that uses minimal materials to achieve maximum comfort and ergonomic support. It's built to be tough enough to handle long days, and gentle enough to help you walk out of those long days with a spring in your step, rather than a hitch in your giddyup. Developed by office furniture giant HON, this is a chair you can depend on to look great, and feel even better. Maybe the best part? You get all that great ergonomic support and tasteful design at a great price.

HON is in the business of making your life at work easier, better organized, and more productive. They made their name building office filing systems, desks and cabinets, but more recently they've used their expertise to start building some truly impressive office chairs. The Nucleus is one of the best.

The Nucleus Chair combines a contoured seat with an advanced foam/upholstery system that easily molds to and supports your unique shape. The back of the chair is tall and minimal, using only a space age material that is able to stretch in multiple directions simultaneously, providing you with exceptional comfort and support in nearly any sitting position. The armrests are well designed and ergonomically sound, putting a finishing touch on the complete comfort system that defines the chair.

Using our unique online design engine, you can make lots of choices about how you want your Nucleus Chair to look and perform. Choose your favorite armrests, the color of the fabric, the finish of the base, and much more. It's your chair, you should have a hand in the final design!

    Comments about HON Nucleus Chair:

    Prior to purchasing, I went on the HON website to view the "Designer's Story" video for Nucleus. In it, the designer says, "You just have to sit in Nucleus." He is so right. The thinness of the seat cushion is misleading. It is by far the most comfortable office chair I have ever sat in.
