Steelcase Leap chair designers researched how people sit for over four years. The result is the Leap chair's Liveback technology which allows the chair to adjust dynamically, mimicking the movement of your spine. The Leap chair's seat moves when you move; the back moves when your spine moves. The result - a chair that is amazingly comfortable. The Steelcase Leap chair also has an unusually wide range of adjustment, allowing this chair to fit the broadest range of people possible. This product listing is for the base model in black with black fabric and no arms.
The Leap chair charters new territory in the world of ergonomic chairs with its Liveback technology, creating a chair that intuitively moves as you shift positions while offering extreme comfort and support. The patented Liveback technology recognizes that your upper back and lower back move independently of each other and that for maximum comfort, the chair needs to support this movement. Dynamic upper and lower support mechanisms mimic the unique movements of different individuals resulting in greater comfort and support over extended periods of time.
The Steelcase Leap chair is also good for the environment and has earned the Silver Cradle to Cradle certification, as well as the SCS Indoor Advantage designation for indoor air quality. The Leap chair is 98% recyclable by weight, and may be constructed of up to 30% recycled materials.
Note: This product listing is for the base model in black, with black fabric and no arms. For more fabric and leather choices, frame color choices, caster options and arms, please see our main listing for the Steelcase Leap chair.

The Leap chair has a very comfortable seat support and a great back tilt. It is very adjustable and has intuitive controls. The seat slide works flawlessly and this chair has world class armrests. The Leap and Amia are the chairs I personally sit in all day. The only problem we have seen is the lumbar support tends to float downward on its own in our demo chair and we need to occasionally raise it back up. This is a best in class ergonomic chair.
