The ergonomic chair for the future of working, the Think Chair by Steelcase, comes complete with all of the features to get you working better.

The entire chair functions together to support the back, spine, neck, and shoulders for hours of working at your desk without a pause. Its weight-activated recline mechanism is intuitive and works in conjunction with the adaptive bolstering technology seat cushion for all-day support you need to keep you working at optimal efficiency.

Designed to provide consistent upper and lower back support, the Think's integrated LiveBack technology employs a series flexors that move with your body, promoting healthy, comfortable postures as you work.

A dual-energy lumbar support also delivers reliable lower back support, using spring-powered energy to 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 deliver unparalleled support without restricting movement.

The Steelcase Think Chair ships fully assembled and is backed by a full manufacturer's warranty. Work better, and feel great with a single seat switch.

  1. LOVE my chair! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 10th 2017

    I have been a bookkeeper for many years. As one can imagine - sitting in a chair for hours just plain hurts after a while and Goodwill and other non-profits have benefited from all my rejected chairs over the years. I gave up for a while and then realized when I hit a certain point and unless I could take an early retirement - which I can't, I would have to solve this. I went to a warehouse to get a gently used chair - tried several and then sat on one of these. My body felt right at home. As it turned out, that one was sold so I went online and found The Human Solution. The customer service was excellent and I was able to pick all of the features and styles that I love. Granted, it's an expensive chair (although not as much as some). BUT after several months I can say that this chair is the most comfortable that I've ever had. I would never trade it for another. I eventually also invested in a sit/stand desk and I find that I don't need to use the stand feature often because my back doesn't hurt but if I want to - I can. So my experience with this company has really been perfect. Thanks!

  2. Best chair to fit my back 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 25th 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.

  3. Great Chair, Terrible Headrest 3 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 9th 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.

  4. Great chair, but ... 3 Star Review

    Posted by on May 23rd 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.

  5. This is a perfect chair 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Apr 5th 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!
