ergoCentric partners with gry mattr by Joe Mimran and Staples Canada to bring the airCentric 3 to market

Mississauga, Ontario – March 30, 2022 – In the new world of hybrid work, the need for solutions that support our routines has sharply increased. For those who spend their days sitting, an ergonomic task chair is a critical tool to helping them function at their best.

Staples Canada, The Working and Learning Company, has partnered with gry mattr by Joe Mimran and ergoCentric, North America’s premier manufacturer of high-quality ergonomic seating, to bring to market Canada’s best ergonomic office chair in its price point.

Built with over a decade of airflow engineering research and innovation at its core, the airCentric 3 is adjustable, stylish, and hardworking. ergoCentric seating systems are designed to enhance your well-being while you work and are recommended by 94 percent of Canadian ergonomists.

airCentric 3 is available with three seat size options, contributing to a good fit. It offers backrest and lumbar support that mirror the natural curves of the spine, armrests with height, width, and swivel adjustment features, and proprietary airflow technology, all features to enhance posture and comfort.

“As the number one seller of office chairs in Canada, we know what Canadians are looking for when it comes to their solutions for hybrid work,” said John DeFranco, Chief Commercial Officer, Staples Canada. “More than a supplier of office essentials, we’re serious about our role as a source of expertise when it comes to hybrid work solutions. That’s why we’ve partnered with pre-eminent experts in our field to blend form and function, resulting in an exclusive offering that can help Canadians work at their highest potential.”

The airCentric 3 is a direct output of Staples Canada’s Work From Anywhere Advisory Council: designer and entrepreneur Joe Mimran and ergonomist Rachel Mitchell (both council members) proposed pursuing a partnership with Canadian seating manufacturer ergoCentric following one of the Council’s quarterly meetings.

“With so many of us working from anywhere – myself included – we all know the importance of having the right tools to get the job done,” said Joe Mimran, president and creative director, Joseph Mimran and Associates Inc. and lead creative director, gry mattr.
