The Steelcase Amia Drafting Chair is praised for offering hard to beat comfort and back support in a simple, efficient design. Featuring progressive LiveLumbar technology, the Amia chair's back design promotes a healthy posture by flexing with your movements.

These high-end ergonomic features will keep a wide range of users feeling healthy, comfortable and supported for several hours every day.

Features - Steelcase Amia Drafting Chair

  • LiveLumbar Support: The Amia Chair's LiveLumbar technology keeps your lower back healthy and supportive. This ergonomic feature encourages a healthy posture and combats back sag and lower back pain by flexing with your movements to provide all-day support. The Amia Chair also features an adjustable lumbar support pad, offering even more custom support for the important lower back region.
  • Adjustable Footring: The Amia Drafting Chair has a 20 inch footring that can be easily adjusted over a four inch range to fit a variety of users. Just lift and turn it counter-clockwise to unlock it, raise or lower it to your desired height, then turn it clockwise to lock it into place again.
  • Simple but Effective Design: Steelcase has created a slim, unique and efficient ergonomic chair in the Steelcase Amia. The chair blends elegant, modern style with comfortable padding and advanced ergonomic features. Unlike many other ergonomic chairs, the Amia chair makes it easy to fit the chair to your body.
  • Adjustable Back Tension: The Steelcase Amia Chair makes it easy to adjust the resistance you feel as you lean the chair back, offering custom support and providing all-day comfort. The Amia is one of the easiest chairs to move from an upright position to a reclined position.
  • Adjustable Seat Depth: Customize the depth of the Amia Chair's seat for maximum comfort. This feature keeps the seat edge from hitting the back of your knees, eliminating discomfort and helping to ensure good blood flow.
  • Adjustable Arms: The Steelcase Amia's standard armrests are fully adjustable. You can easily raise or lower them, push them back and forth, move them in and out and even angle them for changing tasks.
