1. Shock mounts

Shock mounts it is one of the most important constructive part of the chair. Unfortunately the most susceptible on damages calls "achilles hill" until this Herman Miller did not change that solution, what causes a characteristic feature of this chair. The shock mounts is made from metal covered by ruber, which in the flow of time oxidizes and gets old. Herman Miller guarantees 3 years.

Specially for needs of making something better and not straying from the orginal I made a shock mounts from metal parts, ensuring good combination supporting arms, and wood for better amortization. Entirety it does not stray off the original. Additionally it is protected by coating against oxidizing and wearing.in cooperation with my partner and chemist engineer we composed a glue ensuring keeping glued elements over 10 years. Thanks this, joining it with precision of my work I can give you 10 years warranty for the work I perform.

Below I am presenting you examples of mistakes, defects in shock mounts installation and how it supposed to look like.
