Zody Office Chair

Zody is a story of firsts. It’s one of the first chairs ever to fully support two postures: sitting, and the in-between “perch” position that’s half sitting, half standing at a sit-to-stand desk. And it’s the first chair to satisfy the most stringent environmental standard: Cradle to Cradle Bronze® certification. In a nutshell, this is the most researched chair on the market. Ever.


Zody is designed to accommodate a sitting position and a “perch” position when your standing desk is raised. This optional adjustment supports the in-between posture that’s half sitting, half standing. But you don’t need a sit-to-stand desk to love this chair — it’s pure comfort both ways.

Built with over 20 years of independent field studies and knowledge, it’s the most researched chair on the market. The exclusive asymmetrical lumbar support mimics the anatomy of your spine and lets you fine-tune comfort on either side. Additional pelvic support rotates the pelvis forward to help maintain your spine’s natural curves as you sit.

And it’s not only good for your body. It’s good for the planet, too. This is the first chair ever to be Cradle to Cradle Bronze® certified — the most rigorous environmental standard for products that can be fully reused after their first life. It’s also GREENGUARD Gold® certified and independently tested to be free from over 10,000 chemicals to help contribute to cleaner air in your home.

Content: Care
  • Vacuum your chair as needed.
  • For additional cleaning, use a solution of lukewarm water and mild detergent (about 10%). Gently apply in a circular motion, then rinse with warm water and dry with a soft cloth.


Choose from breathable mesh, our signature zero-waste digital knit, or top-grain leather. Mesh naturally regulates body temperature and beautifully filters light. Digital knit offers the coziness of your favorite sweater and the innovation of technology. Because each cut is engineered to exact dimensions, there’s no leftover material — and zero waste. Our smooth, full-grain leather is soft and luxe with a premium feel.

Dual Posture

This innovative option supports the in-between posture that’s half sitting, half standing when your sit-to-stand desk is raised.

Pelvic Asymmetrical Lumbar Support

This patented system lets you independently control comfort on either side of your back. You’ll feel more support through your lumbar and pelvic area to maintain your spine’s natural curves as you sit.

Forward Tilt

Angle the seat downward by 5° to support a forward-leaning posture.

Seat Height Adjustment

Adjust the seat up and down depending on your height.

Tilt Tension Control

Go from relaxed and reclined to sitting upright in seconds with a simple, easy-to-use crank.

4D Arms

Get full support for your neck and shoulders with arms that move in and out, up and down, side to side, and front to back.

Sit, Stand or Somewhere In Between

Zody is one of the first chairs (ever!) to offer a dual posture option. That means it ergonomically supports two positions: sitting down, and that in-between “perch” position that’s half sitting, half standing. (If you have a sit-to-stand desk, you know what we mean.)

Genuinely Sustainable

Zody is the first chair ever to be Cradle to Cradle Certified® Bronze under the newest qualifications. This is the most ambitious standard yet for making products that enable an equitable and sustainable future for people and the planet. Zody also satisfies the most stringent level of environmental standards from the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association.

GREENGUARD Gold® Certified

Zody is independently tested to be free from over 10,000 chemicals to help contribute to cleaner air in your home. It’s considered the most stringent standard for ensuring products are low in VOC emissions, which can lead to healthier indoor environments. Short for volatile organic compounds, VOCs are chemicals emitted as gasses into the air. The most common exposure is in our homes.

Environmental Integrity

Our chairs are crafted with more than 90% recyclable materials. That means almost the entire thing can be broken down to be recycled — and they’re designed for easy disassembly, so recycling is hassle free. We don’t use PVC, heavy metals, or flame retardants to make our chairs.

Sustainable Comfort

Choose Zody upholstered in our Hobson fabric, and you’ll help make a difference. Made from 80% ocean-bound plastic and recycled polyester, this exclusive material is durable, modern, and soft to the touch. Each yard diverts 33 plastic bottles from entering our oceans.

Finally, a chair that delivers

Since the pandemic, I have been using a kitchen chair as my office chair. So an upgrade was in the cards. I had done so much research and time and time again, this chair would come up. So I pulled the trigger and I love everything about it. Besides being incredibly comfortable, it is super functional. Very pleased with my purchase.

The only office chair in 36 years of working that I wanted to buy for my home office

In my working life I've had at least a dozen different office chairs, most of them nice. Haworth's Zody is the first chair that I have loved. I am 5'2" and occasionally work long hours. The features for the chair are such that I was able to adjust the seat depth and lumbar support, arm height and chair height to perfectly fit my frame and my desk. With better support, better posture, and a comfortable seat...the occasional long hours are a breeze. This is the only work chair that I have ever insisted go with me when the office was redesigned and redecorated. It is also the only one where I have looked up the make and model so that I could purchase one for my home office.

Great replacement chair to my secret labs titan

We purchased our chair after spending a year with a secret labs titan and realized that while it was attractive, using it for a home office was less than ideal with the amount of hours you need to spend in it. We took our time and decided this was the right option and i can say after taking delivery it definitely was. The quality and comfort is is off the charts compaired to what we came from. Even without being broken in yet we can feel the difference. Well worth the money.

John Chow
Well built office chair

Don’t fell comfortable with my current mesh chair. The sitting area is simply not comfortable . And no lower back support. Compare 3 different brands and choose Haworth Zody. Chair comes in assemble. Well packaged. The sitting pad is really comfortable. Lumbar support is good. Pretty god overall.

Anna Silchenko

I had Zody I in my office and ordered Zody II for home. The chair arrived quickly and I have been using it a few days already. It has the same structure and geometry designed for humans. I work and sit > 10 hours a day and can feel the difference. After using my new Zody II for a few days, I already feel that my bones and muscles are recovering from bad chair I used at home before Zody II arrived. But the seat cushion and back support were softer, less rigid and more comfortable on Zody I.
