Steelcase Gesture Chair

item#: STC260

The Steelcase Gesture Chair is designed to address the unique postures associated with modern electronic devices. Built to move along with the human body, Steelcase Gesture Chairs feature unique 360° arms with an unparalleled range of motion, letting you reposition your arm rests to support your arms in nearly any position. The Steelcase LiveBack technology integrated into the backrest flexes with your spine as you move, using a unique core-equalizer system to provide more or less lumbar support as needed. Paired with other great features such as adjustable back tension, a variable back stop and an optional height-adjustable lumbar support, the Steelcase Gesture offers a seating experience as advanced as the devices we use.

The Gesture is part of the Steelcase Free Returns Promotion: if you decide the chair isn't working for you, you can return it within 30 days, with no fees at all.

Created to address the unique needs of the modern mobile device user, the Steelcase Gesture Chair offers unprecedented flexibility and support with classic Steelcase style. Featuring Steelcase's 3D LiveBack technology and 4D arms with a 360° range of motion, the Steelcase Gesture easily adjusts to support different users and postures by flexing to support the spine as it moves, and offers one-touch arm adjustment. A core equalizer built into the chair's back works in tandem with the Gesture's tension- and range-adjustable recline system, automatically providing the right level of lumbar support when reclined or upright. The Gesture's padded seat also features passive cushion edges that flex to minimize pressure against the thighs.

Its unique design helps to combat fatigue, back pain and spinal issues commonly associated with poorly supported postures, while its modern appearance is sure to fit your office as well as it fits your body.

Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

The design of the Steelcase Gesture Chair is the result of Steelcase's Global Posture Study, spanning eleven countries on six continents and over 2000 workers. The study showed that the use of modern wireless devices such as tablets, smartphones and laptops has given rise to nine common postures, all of which were given little support by most chair designs. The Steelcase Gesture was thus modeled after the human body so that the chair itself could flex and conform to these new postures. A pair of unique 360° arms and Steelcase's LiveBack technology allow you to adjust the chair to your body in nearly any posture, while still maintaining the same level of comfort and support for traditional working postures that Steelcase chairs are famous for.
