Choose from 4-way adjustable arms, height-adjustable arms, fixed arms or no arms for your Think chair.

Note: We highly recommend the 4-way adjustable arms. They adjust up and down, left and right, forwards and backwards, and angle 30 degrees in each direction. They are easily some of the best arms on the market.

The Steelcase Think Chair combines efficient ergonomic adjustments and excellent back support in a sleek, elegant package. Designed to provide consistent upper and lower back support, the Think's integrated LiveBack technology uses a series of linked flexors to move with your body, promoting healthy, comfortable postures as you work. A dual-energy lumbar support also delivers robust lower back support, using spring energy to help balance your weight across the seat back. In the seat cushion, a series of cored pockets allow the Think to mold itself to your body, "hugging" your legs to provide unparalleled support without restricting movement.

Features - Steelcase Think Chair

  • Dynamic seat and back features a linked flexor system that automatically adjusts to your spine and pelvis as you move to ensure a custom fit every time you sit down
  • Adaptive bolstering technology uses cored pockets in the seat foam, allowing the seat to hug the legs and create a custom "comfort pocket"
  • Advanced weight-activated mechanism with adjustable tension controls includes a synchronized tilt function to ensure an optimal seat and back recline angle as you move

Best chair to fit my back
January 25, 2013
I sat in this chair during a product design competition. And I sat in a lot of famous brands even Herman Miller's. But this Goldilocks moment was because that it fits the small of my back perfectly. I naturally have an arm in my back because of my posture. I love spring/resistance when I lean back. I love the adjustable arms. I am a fidgety person, constantly changing positions when on a computer for 10+ hours and this chair moves with me. Best investment. And I googled it, HumanSolution currently is the cheapest place to get this chair even with the architecture/designer discount.

Great Chair, Terrible Headrest
December 9, 2011
If you are 6'2" or taller don't get the optional Headrest - it won't fit your head. It ends up being a neck rest instead of a headrest. The headrest doesn't go high enough for your torso length.

Great chair, but ...
May 23, 2011
The chair is great, except that the back can not be adjusted completely upright to fully support the back. This results in only support of the lower back when working at a desk.

This is a perfect chair
April 5, 2011
I bought this after hearing about how wonderful it was from the experts at The Human Solution. I agree. Call them as they really do offer expert advice and didn't lead me wrong. Great looking chair too but most importantly it's really comfortable. Thanks!
