What we did

In January 2016 Hastings Direct expanded into Leicester’s city centre, recruiting 150 employees to work from the newly-refurbished ‘Blue Tower’, also known as the Equinox Tower.

A smart new office calls for smart new furniture, and the company was keen to provide cutting-edge ergonomic chairs to keep its young workforce in the best health possible.

Product profile


It’s balanced movement mechanism, flowing tilt function and simple back adjustments, make it an excellent ergonomic chair for any office working environment. An optimised tilt angle as well as soft but supportive cushioning in the seat and back provide a feeling of well-being.

Our goals

  • Boost staff satisfaction
  • Provide value for money
  • Offer hands-on education
  • Promote good posture and ergonomics across a young workforce

The company agreed to buy 1,500 H04 chairs over a 3-year time span - to include Bexhill, Eastbourne, Newmarket and the entire new Leicester office. We supplied the chairs, removed the packaging and carried out assessments on each individual user to ensure all chairs were adjusted according to employee’s unique needs.
