The fresh Black Edition models with the new vinyl/PU hybrid leather upholstery made an incredible impression from the minute I laid my eyes on them. The matte coal black color and swede finish offer an unprecedented look that is beyond anything we have seen and felt before. noblechairs and its German designers have once again managed to astound us, this time with new upholstery.

In a snap, the differences between all new and old lines aside from the new upholstery are the following:

EPIC Black Edition
  • Stainless steel handles
  • Powder-coated aluminium base
  • Enlarged 4D armrests with soft padding
  • Belt feed-through with a metallic look
Hero Black Edition
  • Adjustable lumbar support
  • Enlarged 4D armrests with soft padding
  • Memory foam headrest
ICON Black Edition
  • Enlarged 4D armrests with soft padding
  • Stainless steel handles
  • Adjustable rocking mechanism and backrest
  • Quiet 60 mm casters for hard and soft floors
These modifications for every noblechairs series might seem minor, but noblechairs has always stood out of the crowd for the consistent details on their chairs. Many of you will for good reason argue against spending as much as €999.90 on a gaming or office chair. Well, it is mainly a matter of comfort, ergonomics, material cost, build quality, design, brand name, and product warranty. noblechairs aims to produce elegantly designed chairs and uses high-quality materials, for a chair that will last for longer than just a while. Moreover, all noblechairs products promise to keep their foam shape for years to come. I can personally attest to that as all chairs I own from the company still look as good as new despite having been used for at least 8 hours a day. They have also softened slightly for even more comfort after extended use. Ultimately, the expense will eventually pay off. It is your comfort and—above all—health of your back that matter the most. However, the main issue on hand is always also whether you can actually spend such an amount on a decent chair. Some years ago, I was hesitant to spend a lot of money on a new chair, so I just picked a cheap one that wouldn't hurt my wallet. Eventually, after only a couple of months of use, my back started to hurt, and I then realized that the money spent on a proper chair is an investment in my health. This is how you should see it as well, and before it is too late for your back.

What I would expect next from noblechairs is a chair made out of mesh, with embedded and adjustable lumbar-support and head-support systems. Mesh chairs are among the most comfortable and durable if the proper materials are used.
