Since lots of people spend most of their day in front of a computer monitor, working or gaming, a good chair has to be comfortable while offering the right ergonomics; it should also be durable. The materials which are used to produce a chair, like its upholstery and plastic components, should be of good quality, and the warranty should also be longer than two years. If we are to spend a significant amount of money on such an item, we expect our investment to be worth the money spent. noblechairs decided to think out of the box and created something innovative. They listened to all the feedback they got and designed a brand-new chair pattern with the right ergonomics, using those fine materials worthy of the brand's fine reputation.

The ICON's pioneering design and its large dimensions give broad-shouldered people with big thighs the room they need. The chair's design promotes a straight body posture, which is of paramount importance for users working or gaming for countless hours in a row. There are only slightly raised edges along the rim and, as such, none that would limit a person's sitting position, and the good quality of the materials used is so obvious that you'll take note of it right as you unbox an ICON chair. noblechair's characteristic diamond stitching pattern that covers a significant part of the chair's upholstery is meticulous, and there is the fine vegan PU leather upholstery with perforations to ensure you won't sweat, which is another factor when it comes to achieving the comfort we have come to expect of noblechairs chairs. The shimmering glow that pours through the upholstery's perforations contributes to the lavishness of the black cover itself. With all of the above, the ICON chair appears to be one of the most attractive chairs in our office. noblechairs was able to make a difference while at the same time managing to adhere to our high standards.

The ICON series models are enforced with a steel frame and an elastic band under the seat's base, which ensures these can hold a body-weight of up to 150 kg (330.7 lb). Whether it is for office use or a gaming spot, this chair is comfortable and supports both well.

The ICON with the PU pleather upholstery comes in four different color flavors; black, black/blue, black/platinum white, and black/red. The second color appears on the stitching and all color combinations carry the same price tag. Like every product we have reviewed so far, this one is not perfect either. The screws that are made out at a distance on its plastic bits do look somewhat unattractive. Since noblechairs is known to pay attention to such details, this one seems to have slipped past their attention. Another drawback is that the rocking function is a bit stiff as it takes someone with a weight of over 70 kg (154.32 lb) to utilize properly; users weighting less will not be able to take advantage of this feature. Moreover, the lumbar-support cushion does not feature straps, so you will most likely need to put it back into its position every time you take a seat. This chair also only has a 2-year warranty, which is strange considering its good build quality and price.
