Nouhaus Ergo3D

The Ergo3D Ergonomic Office Chair is a product that combines comfort, functionality, and affordability.

Manufactured by Nouhaus, a California-based company that may not be as well-known as some of its competitors, but has proven its understanding of the office furniture market with this product.

This chair is designed to provide a comfortable and supportive seating experience for those who spend long hours at their desks, whether they’re working, gaming, or engaging in other activities that require prolonged sitting.

Design and Features

The Nouhaus Ergo3D Ergonomic Office Chair is a heavy-duty task chair that allows you to work long hours thanks to the excellent lumbar support and adjustable headrest.

The chair’s design is not particularly aesthetically pleasing, but it makes up for it with its functionality and comfort.

The chair is made of a mesh material that allows for breathability, keeping you cool during long hours of use.

It also features extra blade wheels which can help your posture, whether you lean backward or forwards.

The strong metal base under these ergonomic mesh chairs holds the comfortable cushion seat in the perfect position.

The chair is available in four colors: dark burgundy, shiny blue, silver gray, and black coffee, allowing you to choose one that best fits your office decor.

Nouhaus Ergo3D Review

Unboxing and Setup

The Nouhaus Ergo3D Ergonomic Office Chair does not come assembled. It arrives in multiple pieces in a large box.

However, the instructions are clear and easy to understand, and none of the individual pieces are terribly large, making them easy to handle if you’re putting the chair together on your own.

You should expect it to take upwards of 30 minutes to get the chair put together, but you won’t have any particular difficulty doing it solo.

Build Quality

The chair is quite sturdy, with a maximum supported weight of 275 pounds and a chair weight of 51 pounds.

The chair’s overall product dimensions are 30” x 26” x 56.2”. It’s worth noting that this chair may not be suitable for larger or taller individuals due to its limited seat depth and weight limit.

Adjustability and Ergonomics


The chair features an adjustable headrest, providing excellent head and neck support. The headrest can be adjusted in height to provide support for your head or neck and can be tilted to an angle suited to the user’s needs.

Armrest Adjustments

The armrests are tremendously well-implemented and adjustable. You can move the armrests up or down, adjusting the height to taste.

You can also slide them backward, closer to the seatback, or forward, closer to the edge of the seat.

On top of that, you can move the armrests in or out, putting them closer together or farther apart to provide a better, more customized fit for you.

Backrest Tilt Recline

The Nouhaus Ergo3D Ergonomic Mesh Office Chair offers a recline range that starts at 90 degrees and extends to 135 degrees, allowing you to find the perfect position for a long gaming session or office work day.

Seat Height Range

The seat height adjustment range is 18.1” to 21.9”, making it a fairly versatile chair, useful for people as short as about five feet, and extending up to maybe 6’1” or 6’2” provided the relatively modest max. weight limit is kept in mind.

Lumbar Support

The chair’s lumbar support utilizes a proprietary technology called Dynamic Variable Lumbar (DVL), which takes advantage of the seatback’s segmented design.

The amount of lumbar support you get from the chair shifts and changes dynamically as you shift position in the chair, so you’re always getting the right amount of support, no matter how you’re sitting.


The Nouhaus Ergo3D Ergonomic Office Chair is designed with comfort in mind. The mesh material of the chair allows for breathability, making it more comfortable for long hours of use.

The chair’s lumbar support, adjustable headrest, and armrests all contribute to its overall comfort.

The seat is also equipped with a “Waterfall” edge, which reduces pressure on the thighs, enhancing comfort during prolonged sitting.


The Nouhaus Ergo3D Ergonomic Office Chair is priced at around $369(7 June 2023), which is quite affordable considering its features and quality.

Customer reviews are generally positive, with many users praising the chair’s comfort and adjustability.

However, some users have pointed out the lack of padding on the seat and the limited height and inclination settings as areas for improvement.


The Nouhaus Ergo3D Ergonomic Office Chair is a versatile and capable office chair that offers excellent value for money.

Despite its limitations, such as not being suitable for larger individuals over 275lbs and its lack of aesthetic appeal to some, it provides excellent comfort and adjustability.

It’s a great fit for anyone who values function over form and is looking for a chair that can stand up to the rigors of heavy daily use.

This chair would be most beneficial for those who spend long hours at their desks, such as office workers or gamers. Its excellent lumbar support, adjustable headrest, and armrests make it a comfortable choice for long hours of use.

In conclusion, the Nouhaus Ergo3D Ergonomic Office Chair is a solid choice for those seeking comfort and adjustability at an affordable price.

However, it may not be the best choice for larger individuals over 275 lbs or those who place a high value on aesthetics.
