The Cobi Chair

Collaboration is crucial for business, but what that means for most of us is more meetings. If you catch yourself squirming in your seat, that's your body telling you it's time to switch postures.

For flexibly supportive, stylish, and simple seating that keeps you comfy, the Cobi Chair by Steelcase is the ergonomic solution to long hours spent sitting around the conference table.

Every part of the Cobi is intentionally included to encourage movement, from its flexing top edge to its flexing back. And to make adjustments easier, the Cobi offers one manual adjustment, its seat height, with all other ergonomic adjustments occurring intuitively.

A weight-activated mechanism organically assists you in sitting in the best posture and properly aligned, one that puts the least amount of stress on your body. When you move, so does your chair, almost like a second set of skin, allowing you to direct your attention around the room as needed.

When you're brainstorming and collaborating, don't stop the flow, keep your body comfy and working ideally in an intuitive and uncomplicated chair like the Steelcase Cobi Chair.

    Pleasantly surprised

    Posted by Jenna on Aug 17th 2009

    I'll admit it; I bought this chair because it looks cool. I had done some shopping for chairs and most everything else was okay so I didn't really think about comfort because I thought "a chair is a chair."

    My boyfriend said I should buy a brand name chair because they are made better and he wanted me to buy the Herman Miller Equa which looked cool and was about the same price. I sat in that one and didn't think it was comfortable at all.

    So I bought this cute little Cobi because it's made by Steelcase and I've heard of them. I LOVE IT! It is more comfortable than a lot of chairs I tried. The back and seat are flexible and not hard. It's cute and fits in my room without taking up a lot of space.

This product comes standard with a limited lifetime warranty.
