Steelcase Think Chair with 3D Knit Back
4.5 Stars based on 8 Review(s)

Overall very nice
February 12, 2013
I like this chair a lot, but I have two issues with it. First, the lumbar support doesn't stay in place. It's basically just a cheap piece of plastic that slides up and down and I find it slips down after a few hours of sitting. Second, the seat is suspended on a set of wires. You sit on a pad that's on top of those wires. Maybe it's the way I sit or the shape of me, but I find that after a long period of sitting I can feel the pressure of one or two of those wires quite distinctly. Finally, the tension on the seat back isn't adjustable in the way I'd like. It's very light, and although you can set locking positions to prevent it from going back to far, I would find a bit more tension with a full range of motion to be better.

Great chair
July 25, 2011
I really like this chair because the back is so flexible and the arms are adjustable in height, width apart, and angle. I personally like it better than the Aeron.

Could not be happier with this purchase

I am 5' tall and have never before had a chair that adjusted to my dimensions. I am thrilled with the chair and with the advice I received "i chatting" with your customer service rep.

Good chair for the money
February 20, 2011
Now that I've had this chair for a while I think I can say I'm very impressed with it. When I'm at home I'm almost ALWAYS sitting at my desk, and unlike cheap chairs from big office stores, this chair has never made my butt, back or arms hurt. I'm glad I got the lumbar support because without it I don't know if there would be enough support to keep me from slouching. The first 2 tension settings always provide enough support, but I'm pretty thin. One thing I was worried about when ordering was whether the arm rests would be soft enough since other chairs tend to hurt my bony elbows, but the rubber is plenty soft. The only complaint I have is that after a few months of heavy sitting the seat lost some of it's spring and cushion, but it's still very comfortable. This chair is about as cheap as you'll find for real ergonomic chairs, but the build quality has been great so far and it meets all my requirements for comfort without paying for even more expensive chairs. I'm 6'3" and about 150lbs, and always had problems with cheap office store chairs, so if you're like me this chair is definitely worth the investment.

Best Office Chair I've Ever Used
December 9, 2010
This is the most comfortable chair I have ever used. I have been able to adjust it to fit perfectly. I sit for long hours at two computer terminals that I roll between during the day. I usually start my day with an hour and a half workout at the gym so I may come into the office with a little post workout soreness. The last thing I need is a chair that is another source of soreness. I love how I can shift positions and still be comfortable. We have a conference room full of Areons which are in my opinion OK but I wouldn't dream of trading my Think chair for one.

Cmon Think About It
July 2, 2010
I'm purchasing yet another round of Think chairs for my office. My entire office sits in these chairs- they look great and everyone is extremely comfortable working in them for 8-10 hours a day. I saw the other review complaining about the lack of lumbar- we all have the added lumbar support option. I guess I would recommend it, especially if someone found it uncomfortable without it. We just included those from the beginning because the first people we got these for ranged from 5'2" to 6'3". The Think fits everyone great, and the oldest ones we have look as good as the newest chairs we recently received. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this chair to anyone because it fits everyone so well here and is so comfortable. Best, B

Not enough lumbar support for me
May 7, 2009
I am 5' 6" and cannot get comfortable in this chair. There is no lumbar support for me!

Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

The Steelcase Think Chair is unique to the mesh back chair market with its intuitive and flexible back support system, open and active mechanism, and arms that are extremely adjustable. This chair will also fit a wider range of bodies than most chairs, making it an exceptional choice in a corporate setting. We strongly recommend you order the adjustable lumbar support for best support of this region of your back.
