Best certified ergonomic office chairs for 2024

Ergonomic chairs must be fully adjustable, so they can provide the right type of support to all users. Some chairs claim to be ergonomic but aren’t independently certified. At K-Mark, we manufacture two chairs that have been certified by Ergomax, the EasyPro and the Veneto.

The EasyPro is our flagship ergonomic chair. The practical design ticks all the right boxes to qualify as ergonomic and can be customised to suit your décor.


The EasyPro features a breathable mesh backrest, height-adjustable armrests, automatic tilt adjustment and a five-star castor base for smooth, easy swivelling.

Best visitors’ chairs for 2024

Visitors’ chairs have lots of uses in offices. They can be used as extra seating for training sessions, for presentation and events, in meeting rooms and boardrooms, and even in the reception area. Some are stackable, making them easy to store.

Our stackable Modena Side Chair is a versatile option that comes with or without arms and features a comfortable, moulded seat.

The chrome finish on the legs makes it a stylish option and the upholstery can be customised to suit your décor.

Best office stools for 2024

Standing desks are more popular than ever, but most people can’t stand on their feet all day. Most standing desks use a comfortable stool for active sitting. People who work at counters or workbenches need a decent stool to give their feet a rest.

The Ziggurat Wobble Base is the perfect office stool for active sitting. The base allows the seat to lean seven degrees in any direction, so the user is always engaging their core muscles.

    The Ziggurat wobble base stool features a tilting base that can lean 7 degrees in any direction. This means the base remains in place while the seat can lean or pivot 360 degrees to give the user freedom of movement.

    Multiple finishes

    The Ziggurat wobble base stool has a rounded, padded seat for extra comfort. The pivot and base are also available in a range of finishes. This stool is ideal for people who use a standing desk.

How to choose the best office chair

The first factor to consider is how the chair will be used. If the user will be sitting for long hours, choose an ergonomic chair. If the user has a standing desk or works at a counter, a stool or draughtsman chair will work better.

Consider the size of the office. Smaller spaces need compact designs, like operator chairs, while larger offices can accommodate bigger chairs, such as highback chairs.

Also consider the cost versus what you’re getting. The highest-rated chairs in the world are prohibitively expensive. An experienced local manufacturer with a good reputation will offer chairs that balance high quality with affordability.

Finding a local manufacturer means you can get repeats of the same chair with the same specs. This is especially important if your business is growing and you may need to expand your offices or open new branches.

As a local manufacturer with many years of experience, K-Mark offers some of the best office chairs in South Africa for 2024. Browse our online store or contact us for more information about our range of office chairs and other furniture.
