One Contest Between Office Chairs: Mesh Cushion VS Sponge Cushion

If you ask me how many types of office chairs there are, I can only tell you: a lot.

Because the classification of office chairs is diverse, it will get different results with different comparison subjects. It can be divided into different categories according to the functions of office chairs, their chair parts, and even a simple cushion.

And why we focus on the sponge cushion chair here? Because mesh cushions are not suitable for people with a heavy weight, especially the mesh cushions with a frame underneath. And that will make people feel uncomfortable with the legs feeling numb after a long time sitting.

But will a sponge cushion definitely better than a mesh cushion? Not really, it’s about the personal preference. I personally prefer sponge cushions because they are practical and comfortable.

Comparison of mesh cushion and sponge cushion


  • The meshsurface is more handsome, Fashion and modern. (Most people still like its great appearance)
  • The sponge cushionis suitable for working at offices, low-key and stable (I personally prefer it).


  • The mesh surface of the office chair cushion has good air permeability.
  • While the sponge is relatively hot in summer, but it can also be solved by turning on the air conditioner.

Easy to clean:

  • The mesh surface is easy to clean.
  • While the sponge is not. But the cleaning agent can also solve it.

There are many different fiber materials for the mesh surface, and the feeling will be different when you sit up. And that definitely can be use as a selling point to promote. It will be more convenient for you to compare and know more about the differences if you have various kinds of office chairs.

  • Mesh surface is not suitable for heavy-weight people, especially the shorter ones (no personal attacks). The thicker the legs, the less suitable it is. The same for the short legs. It definitely makes people feel oppressive, especially for men.
  • The sponge are suitable for any persons.

Abrasion resistance degree of collapse:

  • The mesh surface is easy to collapse and is not wear-resistant.
  • The sponge material is the opposite. Except for its own filling, which will bring substantial satisfaction, the outsourcing fabric is generally more wear-resistant and thick. Generally, the sponge will not collapse in normal use, except for the low-quality ones.

In fact, many manufacturers will provide you with a kind of chair and two cushions for you to choose. Therefore, there is no need to worry too much about the style of chair you like may be with the cushion material that you don’t like.
