Topstar Open Point SY Design Swivel Chair : Brilliant chair!

Was delivered quickly and was exactly as pictured outstanding product that is easy to use great quality and delivered on time. They work well and easily exactly as advertised, speedy delivery, great price, excellent warranty.

Firstly i would like to say that this chair is comfortable and generally feels well made. It is reassuringly heavy and the mesh back is very comfortable. I also disagree with people who say the tension is far too strong, personally i would like to be able to loosen it further however i don’t find it too difficult to move. However i find that the seat is not really deep enough, this isn’t a major issue however as i am 1. 75m tall i think it could be for tall people. Assembly was easy and relatively straight forwards, the chair is sturdy and comfortable even after 5 hours of use. So in conclusion i would recommend this chair and it is good value.

The most comfortable office chair i have ever used. When trying to find a chair you’re going to spend around 40 hours a week in, you do a lot of research. Based on the amazon reviews i chose this one, as well as the fact i liked how it looked. The chair came in one large box and was very easy to put together on my own, using the basic tools supplied. I suffer from sciatica so a chair with an ergonomic back support was of upmost importance – i had previously been using a standard flat backed leather chair with a back support attachment. Happily since using this chair i’ve had no issues relating to poor posture at work with my sciatica, and for that reason along i would happily give this chair 5 stars. But other things i like about this chair:-it’s easy to wipe clean (in black fabric. Having had a couple of lunch spillages at my desk)-the arm rests are height adjustable-it’s easy to adjust the seat into a comfortable position with the height and back rest both being adjustable, plus the angle of the backrest can be locked in any position. -i use this chair on a carpeted floor, the castors never catch / stick. I honestly can’t think of any negatives of this chair and with that said i would happily replace this chair with the same one should i break now after 12 months use. Here are the specifications for the Topstar Open Point SY Design Swivel Chair:

  • Ergonomically shaped backrest with breathable mesh cover
  • Intervertebral discs seat
  • Point-synchro-mechanism
  • Height adjustable “U2(B)” armrests
  • Black polyamide base

I bought it because of my sensitive back, loved it, and got a second one for my other office. Have never sat better, excellent back support. Height of arm rests is adjustable; mesh back reduces sweating, comfy seat.

Sturdy and well put together with a nice solid feel to it. . I spent £48 on another manufacturers ‘office’ chair that literally fell to pieces and malfunctioned in less than a year. This time i decided to spend a bit more in the hope that i would get something that did to coin a phrase ‘exactly what it says on the tin’ and i am not disapointed. I also read the ‘reviews’ of others who had purchased a similar chair for my guidance prior to purchase. I am disabled with a longterm spinal injury so finding a chair that i can put together myself is a bonus, to have a chair that is so easy to adjust is another plus point, however the foremost advantage for me is that i can sit in this chair for long periods withou pain or leg spasms, a definate plus. If i wanted to nit pick i would advise the manufacturer to make the arms a little more sturdy and maybe even cover them in the fabric that the seat consists of, there is a noticeable wobble on the arms but they adjust like a dream and will definately help anyone who gets a bit of rsi from time to time as i can adjust the chairs arms so that my arms dont droop down creating bad poise and leading to aches and pains. Honestly and without question or doubt the best money i have ever invested.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Fantastic chair!
  • Excellent Product
  • Simple, sturdy and stylish

Unlike your usual rickety plastic office chairs, this is absolutely rock solid. I won’t mince words; i am a large woman and as any person larger than 16 stone will tell you, finding a chair that is supportive and isn’t rickety can be a problem. From the moment you park your behind in this chair, you know that there will be no trembling, rocking, lowering and creaking; it is the sturdiest chair i have come across to date. The weight of it is absolutely astounding, and you can feel the quality just when trying to move it as weighs about 4 times more than your average swivel chair. I can lean to the side on this without the sensation the whole chair is going to tip over (the case with some of the previous chairs i’ve owned). Came packaged nicely in a massive box in a limited number of pieces and was very easy to put together (took about ten minutes). The instructions i will say were quite unhelpful as they are in german and the only english language section is in a font so small that it is a struggle to read. In the end, we worked with logic and figured out where things went (and it isn’t very hard to do). The mesh is quite solid and very supportive and has a deep curve to support your spine while simultaneously preventing you from slouching and potentially causing yourself pain later.

Cheaply made, but very adjustable. Very cheaply made, but does the job, is very comfortable and very adjustable. Adjustability was my main requirement. But they don’t move in or outwards from the chair. I think some models do because, when assembling, it looks like you can set them wider or narrower, but you can’t: the screws only fit into the last socket. But that will be fine for most people. The seat height adjusts easily, as does the tilt – and stays locked into whatever position you like. The seat back also slides up and down through about 5 settings. From the photos, i thought the seat back was a metal mesh. But it’s actually very thin stretched fabric that gives under the weight of your back. I think the tension can be increased. It’s actually very comfy – a bit like a trampolineassembly was okay – instructions were useless, but it was mostly pressing the four parts together. The arm-rests were tricky, but worked it out (tip: there are no nuts for the screws – the final hole itself is threaded).

One thought on “Topstar Open Point SY Design Swivel Chair : Brilliant chair!

  1. Seat is small and its not a quality product but the price reflects that. I say that last point through gritted teeth as it is not cheap. My personal chair was over treble the cost and looks and feels top drawer. Having said all that it does the job at does not cost the earth so it comes in at a standard average ‘3’ star.

    1. Great chair four years on – plus how to stop the squeak. After using this chair for nearly four years, i can safely say that this was money well spent. No, but it’s built solid and has lasted twice as long as any other chair i have used, and it’s still going strong now. I use the chair 6-12 hours a day, nearly every day, and it has not waivered or strained, despite my fluctuations in body weight. There is a great deal of adjustment too. The back has a built-in lumber support which raises with the back. You can set a fixed recline, swivel, and adjust the height adjust. I didn’t find the arm rests comfortable, even with the height adjust, however they can be removed with ease. The squeaking when reclining was driving me insane, but it didn’t take long to find a fix. The tension bars in the base were rubbing against each other, causing the squeak (plus black dust). Just get some oil (light engine, mineral oil or baby oil), and apply to the bars and all should be well. The only other complaint is minor too, with the height adjust leaver being too far forward and too low. If you tuck your legs under the chair and swivel, your leg or foot might catch the leaver and cause the chair to descend on your ankle, so watch out.

    This is the chair ordered by my employer for anyone who needs a new office chair so i bought one for home use. It’s comfortable but not so much that you would fall asleep on the job.And it was easy to assemble.

    A very fine chair, well made and comfortable. A high quality chair best bought from amazon. I wanted all black so bought from marketplace trader. The instructions were in german but as they were picture based it was possible to assemble without too much trouble. The adjustments work very well. The backrest is very comfortable. The seat may be a little harder than my bottom prefers. I find that to raise and lower the backrest one has to pull the cover on the back of the chair out just a little at the bottom. This releases a mechanism to allow the back to be raised or lowered. I believe this chair will last a long long time.

    Having used the chair for quite a while now, i can say that i have absolutely no complaint whatsoever. Comfy, sturdy and just as good as it was on day one.

    Very good chair and comfortable. Easy to put together and comfortable. I use the chair all day and don’t have any trouble with it. I have changed the wheels to better rubber ones so that i don’t mark the wooden floor.

      1. I would have given it five stars had the assembly instructions been in english. All german and the diagrams are very, very poor. The arm rests are a devil to put on and you really should attach them to the seat before you attach the seat to the rest of the chair but the instructions are so poor you can’t tell this. Anyway, the chair itself is very well engineered and you can get it adjusted to your requirements (although you need to do this by guesswork and trial and error due to german instructions only and their website does not have any information apart from some frequently asked questions). Don’t forget about the knob under the chair to adjust the tension of the back of the seat – that makes a really big difference to its comfort and could be easily overlooked. I have contacted topstar directly to report this issue of terrible instructions – i don’t know if it will make a difference but its a shame for them to get that bit so wrong when the chair is actually very good. One thing i would say is that the seat is not very deep and therefore if you are very tall this may not be big enough for you so check the dimensions carefully before you buy and remember that the lumbar support does come out quite a long way into the seat and therefore you might not get as much seat as you were expecting.

    1. Comfy and stylise, however the wheels are a little stiff, hopefully these should loosen up over time/use.

  8. High quality, comfortable, easy to adjust. This is a really great chair, excellent back support. It’s easy to adjust and very comfortable to use. It was also relatively easy to put together (arrives in a few bits). I spent a long time looking around the web at lots and lots of chairs when looking for a new main chair (i’m a software developer so i spend a long time sitting down at my desk). This one really ticks all the boxes. High quality, sturdy, reliable chair.
