Why do you need the straps, are you pulling mad G's while bushcamping in a TD ?

Best way to find a good chair for 'gaming' .... find a streamer with a big bum who had a chair for a while and ask what it is.

May I recommend going to a secondhand office furniture warehouse, where you can pick up a real comfy executive leather spinny chair for under a €150.;)

We use these in the office - they are super comfy, we love them and they have shown to resist the weight of hours and hours of work/livestreams of several, variously sized Staff members. :D

The video for the chair is a useless bit of tat, don't bother watching it!

If you need to know what a computer chair should incorporate look up the websites of Microsoft or Hewlett Packard for workstation set up. These give information on the ergonomic requirements for computer users. Or just search for computer ergonomics, it's your body, look after it!

Just looking at the picture gives me a goddamn migraine. I can't imagine what the rest of your office looks like.

 

Appealing to adults is not really that hard. A chair is a piece of furniture. And furniture is something made of leather and/or wood. For sake of clarity ; leather is brown, it's worn and tanned. It's a skin of a dead animal. If it's orange, it's not leather. And wood isn't finish, wood is not pressed from flakes. Wood is a piece cut from hard timber.

 

Since wood and leather can get kind of expensive, it's perfectly acceptable to bring home something that's almost furniture. Almost furniture is something that is black.

 

Just black. Black doesn't mean black with orange, or black with flashing lights. Black doesn't come with neon green or stripes whatsoever. Black has no white streaks, skulls or lightning bolts or logos. Just completely forget the idea that you need to add or change something once the chair is black. It's really simple - if there's a part of it that's not made of metal, it's supposed to be black. And if there's something made of metal (and there goddamn better be, if there's no wood), it's rebar or brushed steel. For extroverts you can add chrome to the list of finishes that aren't completely out of line.  

 

Everything else is rubbish.
