This week Retro Europe launched their new 139.00 Euros Aero5 Ergonomic Office Chair.

139.00 Euros buys you the Aero5 modern designer office chair from Retro Europe, that ensures good posture and comfort for an 8-hour working day, and it looks cool and keeps you cool.

I love this design, it is fresh, clean and clinical.

It will be a sensation in a Home Office or busy Commercial Office.

Retro Europe’s latest ‘super office chair’ at 139.00 undercuts all the rivals.

There was a definite whiff of anticipation and excitement on the Internet this week. The subject on my lips — and no doubt Retro Europe’s competitors was how can Retro Europe bring such a classic looking high-quality office chair to market at 139.00 Euros.

The Aero5 Office Chair launch was a public relations and marketing stroke of genius.

Retro Europe’s Marketing Agency Alicante Studios pitched the Aero5 Office Chair against the Herman Miller Aeron Office Chair priced around 1,000 Euros.

Can the Retro Europe Aero5 Office Chair deliver on price, quality, and design style?

Retro Europe are no strangers to taking the modern designer retro furniture market by storm with their famous promise; Reinvented, Affordability, Great Design slogan

Retro Europe claims that the Aero5 Office Chair has more effective support delivering comfort for the 8-hour working day than far pricier office chairs.

This week, the Retro Europe hysteria sales machine was back again, as hundreds of clients across Europe purchased the first consignment of the Aero5 Office Chair from the online modern office chair giant.

With hundreds more adding their names to a waiting list to be among the first to purchase the Aero5 Office Chair.

The Retro Europe Aero5 bears a passing resemblance to the Herman Miller Aeron Office Chair.


No doubt consumers are hoping for similar quality at a much more affordable 139.00 Euros.

Unlike many other office chairs on the market, the Ergonomic Aero5 from Retro Europe has a very smooth adjustable seat height control, and reclining back seat. It has a 360-degree swivel and super wheels that glide across any surface.

And a modern design that is pure genius.

The key factors for the Aero5 Office Chairs are manufacturing quality and designer style, the correct support for 8 -hours of comfortable working, and staying cool in a hot and sweaty busy office.

It all sounds very impressive, but does it actually work? I went to investigate.

The Science of designing and constructing an Office Chair or Home Office Chair is now very technical.

Body-hugging or Body Moulding is the basics of this Ergonomic Aero5 Office Chair.

Supporting the upper body and head with a firm support for the lower back is instantly appreciated with the Aero5 Office Chair.

The controls are conveniently placed on the side very smoothly reacted to find my optimum comfort position, and yes, the wheels really do glide across the floor.

The recliner is perfectly balanced to take a moment to completely relax while a problem needs to be mulled over, or that short nap in the afternoon.

Whatever your excuse to recline back, let me personally assure you it is the most relaxing experience you will ever have on an office chair.

Plush but not congested, visually solid but not aesthetically aggressive, elegance with function.

Inspired by the basic need for comfort, function and style the XXXXXX Collection is the latest model in the Retro Europe Collection.

The design is functional and it was important that overall it had to be aesthetically pleasing.

In the past, designs combining these objectives all looked very similar so it was really satisfying when the XXXX Collection started to come together, first as a design and then later when the first samples were completed when it was plain to see that the in-house design team at Retro Europe had a very special and individual new modern designer collection.


How did this collaboration of comfort, function and style come about with the XXXXX Collection?

The XXXXX Collection design started with a very robust industrial style harwood frame and sprung deck and with the multi-density cushioning it becomes very comfortable, and finally, this very fresh style combines all the elements, and we are left with something very exciting in the history of great modern designer furniture.

The History of Modern Designer Furniture.

It is reported in the History of Modern Designer Furniture that an ideal living space is only appealing with an armchair and sofa suite.

A suite of furniture is perfect to share with friends and family.

Everybody wants an armchair and sofa combination that is both comfortable and still maintains a crisp design and aesthetic appeal.

So Retro Europe has created the XXXXXX Collection that is a masterpiece of furniture technology and great design, and that is available in vibrant colours to have a mix and match option.

The Total Package from Retro Europe Logistics.


How the sustainable packaging and shipping experts at Retro Europe Logistics deliver a great service.

Visit the huge EU distribution centre in Alicante and you will see something very reassuring.

You will see all the usual heavy protective packaging for the modern designer valuable furniture.

And you will be overwhelmed by the attention to detail of the Quality Control Inspectors.

Quality Control has made Retro Europe one of the leading online sellers of modern designer furniture.

Retro Europe prides themselves on their Logistics Operation.

The philosophy at Retro Europe is simple.

‘How can we deliver our boxes on-time in perfect condition every-time.’

Environmentally neutral transport must be the urgent solution of every online supplier.

Online Business today is huge.

Every second of everyday buyers are ordering products online and they are delivered in cardboard and wooden boxes.

Retro Europe commends online suppliers like themselves for exploring safer, easier, environmentally neutral transport.

Environmentally Neutral Solutions include recyclable corrugated paper to create pallets, boxes and supports.

Recyclable corrugated paper to create pallets, boxes and supports.

Standard wooden pallets and wooden packaging create many problems.

Wooden Pallets are prone to insect infestations, they are not recyclable, they are very heavy especially when they get wet, and they can cause damage during transit.


We must stop cutting down trees to basically fill landfill sites.

Recyclable corrugated paper is light and extremely strong.

Retro Europe has plans in place to tailor recyclable corrugated paper to the sizes of their products.

Recyclable corrugated paper is strong and adaptable.

How can you strengthen recyclable corrugated paper?

The cardboard brace which forms the basis of the strength of recyclable corrugated paper pallets and large boxes is strong enough to allow for vertical packaging.

Basically, it is an open square tube with a triangle form of cardboard layered inside of it to give it its strength.

The triangle form supports in the square tube will brace the box and pallet and will also act as a shock absorber.

This bracing system will allow for vertical stacking.

Vertical stacking minimises storage space, and in turn, minimised storage space equals cheaper storage.

These savings pay over and over the cost of all recyclable corrugated paper constructed pallets and boxes.

One more detail that is astounding for all Logistics Companies.

For years the Logistic Industry has needed Pallets and Boxes.

With recyclable corrugated paper, you can have a box that is also a pallet.

Recyclable corrugated paper functions as a modular system, so if one part of the pallet or packaging is damaged, it can be cut off, and simply be replaced with another cardboard piece or brace, and reused multiple times over and over again.
