The beginning of the TERGON chair

back to overview

The birth story of the TERGON chair, narrated by Georg Endler, co-founder of TERGON GmbH

I spent my "apprenticeship years building chairs" at another well-known office chair manufacturer, where the employees could choose their "favourite chair". Despite the large selection, all 150 employees sat on the same chair: a very expensive executive chair, expensive to manufacture and super comfortable to sit on. Mrs. Angela Merkel sits on a similar chair in the Bundestag.

In 2000, together with my two partners, I founded the company TERGON with the aim of developing a completely new office chair. I remembered my "favourite chair" from the "apprenticeship years". I wanted to exceed this sitting comfort and at the same time, offer it at an acceptable price for the many office employees outside the executive world.

We brainstormed for a long time, tried, and then we found "it": a completely new seating comfort, thanks to a new double foam technology, the "TwinComfort". I sit very comfortably on these cushions and even after 8 hours of continuous sitting I don't get tired nor tense. During the development phase, we focused on the additional adjustment options so that the chair would fit absolutely everyone: a backrest with proactive counterpressure for all weight classes, seat and backrest tilt adjustable in millimetres and much more! I am proud that for almost 20 years now, we have been able to offer every office employee the same sitting comfort "as in the Bundestag" at an affordable price .
