The Buoy

Modern, mobile, and designed after the movement of the sea buoy, you have your choice to sit or perch at the right angles for your work style on the Steelcase Buoy.

Unique in its design and able to lean or tilt up to 12° to engage your core and boost circulation, the Steelcase Buoy is next-level seating designed to give you more freedom to move, whatever you're doing. Whether in a an office setting, a library, a conference room, or even a kid's playroom, the Buoy is going to change the way you sit, letting you get to that sweet spot that keeps the ideas flowing and your body in healthier postures.

In its natural tilt state, the Buoy rests at a 5 degree tilt angle. When you feel like leaning in, the Buoy lets you tilt up to a full 12 degrees, which is perfect for brainstorming and collaboration sessions. Designed to give you the option to move, this chair provides better circulation throughout the body, facilitating better work.

This updated ergonomic seat can be upholstered in a surprising amount of fabrics; pick the cap color on top and then match with the base color on bottom for the fully-engaging seating solution you never knew you needed.

    Love it!

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 29th 2017

    This chair is very comfortable. I like how it raises up and down. Good for your core and strengthens your back. You might notice some very minimal lower back pain when first getting used to it, but it goes away. You will love this chair!

This product comes standard with a limited lifetime warranty.
