Great chair, great support, great style. 6'2" and 225lbs and works perfectly. Would recommend!

Too dependent on weight distribution and not for tall people
I've had this chair for about 7 months now and finally understand it. I'm 6'5'' and bought the high back model with the leaf arms. I wanted to love this chair and wanted something I could write code in for long hours. Unfortunately, your arms are not normally close enough to your body when coding or moving the mouse, this throws off your weight distribution and the seat pushes you forward. I do believe this chair is better as a meeting chair or for casual sitting. The material is incredibly soft and the chair is well made.

The first challenge to this chair is that I could not raise its height to a comfortable position. That was solved by buying taller casters which added about 1 inch to the height of the chair. Before doing that I did learn of a local authorized retailer selling the chair with a taller height range module.

The second challenge because of my height is the short seat depth. But I only notice it when the chair is pushing me forward. The key is to prevent your arms from being too far from your body and throwing off the weight distribution which pushes you forward. I realized that my desk with its contour shape made this more challenging and I do not recommend using a contour desk with this chair.

I did not like the leaf arms and took them off. I think they're designed for people with average length arms not long arms because my elbows rest on the lower edge of the arm which is where the mesh meets the hard frame.

I gained a greater appreciation for the chair after making those three adjustments

This is my third Herman Miller chair. I had high expectations based on reviews, but unfortunately this one disappoints. The seat is too short, and leaning is a disaster. There is no such thing as being all things for everyone. A chair needs adjustments. The Setu is way better with the same proposition. In fact, I bought a 200 chair at Staples that trumps the Cosm. Sorry HM. Customer service was fantastic by the way.

Amazing feat of design and engineering.
I've had my Cosm High-Back for about two weeks now and I am totally satisfied. I have an Aeron at work and decided to try something different for my home office chair and I'm glad I gave this one a try. There is only one adjustment, for height, but somehow it's always comfortable whether I'm leaning forward, back, or to the side. It looks very sleek as well. This is my "buy it for life" office chair and I think I made the right choice.

Great everyday chair!
I was a bit hesitant to purchase the High Back Cosm Chair (with the adjustable arms) because it was a newly released, expensive chair that didn't have many reviews on it. I am so happy that I made the leap -- this chair is very comfortable to sit in for any amount of time. (For reference I am F, 5'6", ~125 lbs) The lumbar support fits perfectly to the small of my back, and my bum no longer hurts after sitting for long hours. It's 100% worth the price and a beautiful piece to look at.

Nice looking but not so comfortable for the price
I recently bought this chair and for the price I think it is not worth it. I happen to have the same problem as other in the previous reviews. I'm 6'1" and the seat depth is really too short. Because of that I keep moving to re-ajust myself in order to fit back in a good position. You also feel like being pushed by the chair into a leaning forward position. The chair has a really nice look, but in the end it's daily usage I found it disappointing.

The Finest Chair I Have Ever Owned
I have been in the contract office furniture industry for many years and have tried many office chairs. I fell in love with the Cosm the first time I saw it. The fit and finish is remarkable and the design in beautiful.
I've been using this chair in my home office for over a month now, and I am even more impressed. All I can say is that it delightfully comfortable, simple, intuitive and responsive. Whether typing or kicking back, this chair is always there for me, in a humble and unassuming way.

REview on my Cosmo High back chair
This is the third chair that I have purchased and its my least favorite, in fact I really think I hate it. I hate the seat portion which is not long enough to reach my knees and has not adjustments to length it as my previous one did, in fact I have gone back to my previous one because of this. Although I order the arms (butterfly) I don't like them at all …and last but not least the movements with my body is rather stiff but I would guess it because its new ??? and there is no adjustment s

Wonderful Chair!
I'd like to preface this review by saying that I'm the type of guy who normally thinks it would be cool to write a review, but never actually ends up carving out the time to write one. That being said, this chair was excellent enough to warrant the time to sit down and recommend it.

I also own the Aeron desk chair and know a lot of people are going to be wondering, "Is this a better chair?" Truth be told, they're entirely different chairs. This one is more focused on fitting you when you sit down in it (virtually no adjustments) whereas the Aeron has near infinite adjustability. This chair seems to fit me well and is likely my favorite of the two, but I'd be hard pressed to call it a "better" chair (apples to oranges). For the record, I'm 6'2 and a little over 200lbs and have no problem fitting (although I don't think a smaller person would either).

Thanks Herman Miller!!!

I purchased this chair about 2 weeks ago and it arrived last week. I had about 5 days to sit in this chair but for those who do not want to continue reading this review, I've started the return process and I cant wait to send this back.


First of all, I suffer from mid to lower back issue and this chair made my pain level worse and now I am experiencing nerve problems. I cant sit more than an hour in this chair. I tried sitting for about 3 hours but it caused more pain (nerve pinching and etc).

My main issue with this chair is that its too upright. I have to force my self to lean backward and also to maintain that position. It not only forces my back to work even while sitting it is extremely uncomfortable. Also, personally, the leaf arm rest is beautiful but very uncomfortable. Whenever im in an upright position my arms would just slide down making the arm rest useless. However, when I am leaning backward the leaf arm rest works fine.

Another issue that I experienced with this chair is the length of the sit. It's way too short for my leg. Even when I pull my self all the way to the back it only covers half of my thigh (I am 5'10). This definitely puts alot of stress on my back.

This problem persists when working on my computer and simply leaning back and watching netflix.

This chair is too expensive to have these problems. I cant wait to send this back and buy a different chair.

Again, this is my personal experience and it may differ with others experience.

I wish some one had written a detailed review before making this purchase. Now I have to go through the hassle of returning this chair...

I hope this review helps any future buyers with back problems.
