Suitable for business use.

This ergonomic office chair has lots of functions that allow you to easily adapt the chair to your body.

Height-adjustable seat allows you to adjust the height so that back and legs are at a 90° angle.

Synchronised tilt mechanism allows the chair to move with you. The backrest moves more than the seat when you lean back, so torso/hips open up. This improves circulation and keeps energy levels up.

As you recline, the synchronised tilt mechanism allows feet to stay on the floor while your gaze remains straight ahead. Your chest stretches without adding pressure on thighs, improving circulation.

This swivel chair has adjustable tilt tension that allows you to adjust the resistance to suit your movements and weight.

To adjust the tilt tension, turn the knob under the seat to increase or decrease the resistance.

The high backrest and the curved shape of the chair, provide good lower back support and prevent your back from getting tired. You sit comfortably, longer and with a relaxed posture.

The shape of the armrests provides good support and helps you find a good sitting position.

The mesh material of the backrest lets air through to your back during long sitting periods.

A safety function locks the castors when no one is sitting in the chair and keeps it securely in place when you stand up.

The castors are designed to provide ease of movement and maneuverability on both carpeted and hard floors as well as on uneven surfaces.

Beautiful & Comfortable!XiaoruiBeautiful & Comfortable!5
Get this over the FlintanRance R.Highly recommend if you're tall to get this one over the Flintan. I'm not even sure why this is more expensive since the Flintan was harder to assemble5
Great ChairAndrewVery happy with this chair, comfortable and steady, feels good quality. I can lock it into positions. Much better than some cheaper types around. It does have a hidden Zipper in the headrest that sometimes rattles though and cant access, I have pinned it down now.5
Great chair - highly recommendedMarkI already had a black one but needed a second for another desk. Recommended to my friends who love it to. Strong, nice mesh back and good support. Great value for money5
Good for the priceSuebsakulok material quality, nothing fancy. plus point for leather touch arm rest. Good mesh back rest, light and breathable One thing to improve is the tilting mechanism still bit stiff even with lightest setting4
Good chair. Bad wheels.Stephanie H.No complaints with this chair... except the wheels. The "safety castors" lock when the chair is unoccupied and release when you sit down. The reality of this is it's hard to move the chair when you're not sitting in it, and I've unintentionally slid away from my desk on sitting down. Personally I'd prefer "normal" castors, or castors that do the opposite (lock in place when seated, and release on standing). Only other thing of note is the arms. Other reviews complain about these so I didn't even bother to attach, but it leaves exposed screw holes and rough fabric edges where the arms should attach; would be nice if the chair looked slick even without the arms on.3
Nice and comfy office chairStephanusIt’s a nice, comfy and easy to assemble chair. I can seat longer hours without feeling back pain anymore. It’s a heavy chair and the packaging is quite huge so might need a bigger and two people to carry. Happy with my purchase.5
Comfortable, easy to put together,paulaComfortable, easy to put together, doesn't make my back hurt after many hours sitting. Thanks Ikea5

Good chairYokaWe grabbed this chair as a dining chair for me since becoming pregnant. It's been great and comfortable for me to use.5
Super comfyLeahLove this chair, so much better than my previous gaming chair and plenty wide even for my plus size backside. Great price and super easy to put together5
Great value for moneyMa. C.Good for its price5
Uncomfortable lumbar support. Locking castors make it difficult to moveBradley S.I am disappointed in my Markus Chair. The thickness of the seat cushion is sufficient, although it is flat and there is not really any ergonomic shape about it. The lumbar support sits too low down my spine to offer any support and is not adjustable. Being in the wrong spot, it pushes my lower body forward making the seat depth too short and my legs hang too far over the base giving the constant feeling like I am sliding off and need to readjust my posture. I dislike the auto-locking castors. Unless you are sitting on the chair, the wheels lock, making it very difficult to move as they dig into the carpet. Pulling or pushing it under a desk is frustrating. That aside, it feels solid, durable and the airy mesh back would be welcomed on hot summer days.1

Our take on polyester

Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions. The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planet’s natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products. In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.

Virgin vs recycled polyester

Originally, all polyester was made from oil-based raw materials which are not renewable but we are switching to only using recycled polyester. The good thing is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without negatively affecting the quality of our products. When we make products from recycled polyester, we give a second life to material that is not biodegradable and reduce the amount that may otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Instead, PET and other sources of polyester are used to make textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. Recycled polyester is just as good as virgin polyester in terms of looks, quality and function, and produces about 50% less in CO2 emissions. And the material is just as clean and safe in every way.

Some challenges with recycled polyester

Recycled polyester makes us less dependent on oil. The amount we convert, is equal to the amount of virgin fossil fuel we eliminate from our polyester raw material (this excludes potential dyeing and other post recycled polyester production treatments). With some exceptions, the challenge is not the conversion of polyester into recycled itself, but to make it available to everyone by keeping it affordable. Buying low environmental impact products often comes with a higher price tag. We want to change that by working to make recycled polyester products more affordable and accessible to the many people.

Only recycled polyester

IKEA is committed to end the dependency on virgin fossil materials and only use renewable or recycled materials by 2030. We are accelerating this movement for polyester in our range and aim to replace all virgin polyester in our textile products with recycled. In 2020, IKEA replaced 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products with recycled polyester. In volume, this means we converted 130,000 metric tonnes of recycled polyester, and saved 200,000 tonnes of virign polyester. We haven’t reached our 100% goal yet, but we have come far and overcome many obstacles on the way. These volumes make us a leader in converting to recycled polyester and we hope that our decisions can inspire and motivate whole industries to change.

Responsible sourcing

At IKEA, we demand that all recycled polyester used in IKEA products shall come from recyclers that are compliant with the Global Recycled Standard and traceability is secured to the IKEA product through requirements toward the IKEA Suppliers. By only using recycled polyester that meets the Global Recycled Standards we manage to secure social, environmental and chemical practices at the recycler’s production. We believe that the GRS standard is the best standard on the market today. We work with our partners and textile organisations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.


What is polyester?

Polyester is a durable, quick-drying and insulating material that is optimal to use for textiles and as filling in pillows, quilts and furniture. The material is made from crude oil – a limited resource. Since IKEA doesn’t want to contribute to more virgin oil being used, we are now gradually switching to recycled and traceable polyester from sources like PET bottles. What’s nice is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without changing or losing its great qualities.
