What is it that makes a swivel chair programme Austria’s most-sold office chair series? It’s an open secret: the best price-performance ratio! With paro_2 Wiesner-Hager is now updating paro, its most successful office chair programme. True to the motto “Strengthen strengths” paro_2 presents itself with yet more functions and noticeably better seating comfort at a surprisingly reasonable price.

Wiesner-Hager’s bestseller has a long history of success. Designed as an economically attractive, top-quality swivel chair, paro is to be found anywhere from the smallest enterprise up to multinational companies like Siemens, Airbus, Coca Cola, Raiffeisen International, Voest Alpine, Microsoft and Skoda – right across Europe. Every day, more than 350,000 office workers are already sitting on Austria’s Number 1 chair.

More well-being and comfort.
paro_2 offers a number of improved and new functions and comfort features. For example, the existing backrest has been supplemented by a second, higher one which provides even very tall people with full back support. In combination with height adjustment functions the backrest guarantees ergonomic back support over a large area from the lumbar region right up to the thoracic vertebrae and beyond.

Tried and tested quality by Wiesner-Hager: a patent application has been submitted for the mesh backrest’s edge and impact protection which considerably improves its shock-resistance.
Also state of the art are the features guaranteeing ease of operation. These resemble ones otherwise only to be found in higher price categories: easy tension spring quick adjustment of backrest pressure to adapt it to body weight, as well as infinitely variable adjustment options for seat height, seat depth and backrest height to adapt the chair to the user’s height. Those who want to save themselves the trouble of manual adjustment can choose the option of an automatic weight adjustment mechanism which independently detects the user’s body weight and automatically adjusts backrest pressure accordingly – especially recommendable in the case of desk sharing and shift work.

It is not only the ergonomic features which have been “fine-tuned”; the design of the back and the seat has been noticeably upgraded – with high-quality upholstery fabrics and an innovative breathable knitted mesh fabric for the backrest. The office chair family is rounded off by three attractive cantilever chairs intended as visitor or conference chairs.

In short, cost effectiveness can also be comfortable. Despite the numerous improvements and enhancements the price has been kept at the same surprisingly low level. Thanks to its expertise as the Austrian market leader in office chairs Wiesner-Hager combines 100 % quality with sophisticated ergonomics and impressive seating comfort whilst maintaining high standards of cost effectiveness. The best qualifications to remain Austria’s favourite office chair.
