With Body-Activated Motion, the OM5 avoids numerous, cumbersome adjustments by intuitively moving with your body to help maintain good posture. The OM5 also features a front edge adjustable waterfall flex design to help keep the back of your legs comfortable and seating posture ergonomic. With so many customizable options, the OM5 will fit any look or style of office space.

Build Quality

Build Quality

The manufacture of OM office seating is conducted under the highest industry standards with careful attention to detail and individual inspection of each and every unit. This chair was made for functionality and has Variable Back Resistance (VBR). VBR means there are 5 rollers in the seat and back that are like the engine of the chair that respond with more or less resistance to recline. One wheel specifically is located in the j-bar. The j-bar is the most functional part of the OM5 and is the backbone of the chair. The Body-Activated Motion keeps the seat angle constant and allows the back to open further which provides better circulation for the user and a healthier way to sit.

PolyFlex Back

The back on the OM5 has a PolyFlex back. Custom slat lengths in the back membranes move in unison to provide perfect support and keep you cool throughout the day. The OM5 also has variable back resistance. Rollers within the seat and back react as you recline, providing you with the perfect amount of resistance while aiding in lower back support and motion. Customize your OM5 chair with any 3 color options for the backrest. The PolyFlex backrest comes in Modern Black, Palladium Grey, and Arctic White.

Seat Comfort

Seat Comfort

The seat on the OM5 has the perfect balance of not too thick and not too thin. Because the seat cushion is not overly thick, it provides all day comfort. The OM5 has a front edge waterfall flex which adjusts to each user’s thigh length and range of motion needs. Pulling up on the front edge of the seat adds seat depth to help adjust the seat to your body. There are no nobs making this chair completely intuitive. Whether you are working in your office, or gaming at your desk, the OM5 provides the ultimate comfort for all tasks.


Most people in an office setting find themselves needing to readjust throughout the day. The OM5 was designed to fit almost any user by assuming multiple positions and intuitively moving with the Body Activated Motion. The backrest freely reclines while the seat is able to move out and up slightly to help maintain a good posture. Instead of having a chair you manually adjust to make it more ergonomic, this chair is responsive, adjusting based on your weight and position. This chair offers users a wide range of ergonomic features that include virtual pause, front edge waterfall flex, variable back response, and adjustable arms.
