MOM staff, here's what you get with a $575 designer chair
Singapore's Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has spent almost $272,000 to buy a total of 472 Herman Miller chairs for its staff! The model Celle (pronounced as Sell-uh) costs $575 each and comes with a 12-year warranty. Yes, 12 years! Why would a ministry of the government need designer chairs for its staff? I have no idea but I do know one thing. Looking at the chair I'm sitting on right now, I'm hating it already. Check out the video of the Celle chair above. Feeling jealous? Go work with MOM.
And here's a review of the Celle. Yes, chairs have video reviews too!
