    The ergonomic chair for the future of working, the New Think Chair by Steelcase, comes complete with all of the features to keep you comfy while seated.

    The entire chair functions together to support the back, spine, neck, and shoulders for hours of supportive sitting without strain or pain. A new and advanced weight-activated recline mechanism with double the synchro ratio (3.5:1) 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 dual-energy lumbar uses two embedded glass resin springs to dynamically support the natural movement of your spine. In layman's terms, this lumbar support flexes with you throughout a wider range of motions, from typing at your keyboard to swiping at your tablet.

    The seat cushion is supportive and sized to suit a broader range of sitters, while a collection of cored pockets in the seat foam allow the Think to mold itself to your body, "hugging" your legs to deliver unparalleled support without restricting movement. Petite sitters will love the modified tension setting, which makes it easier for them to recline in the Think.

    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. This looks a little different than my coworker's Think Chair. Why?

      This is the New Think, version 2.0, and it's ready to support more users throughout a broader range of motions and tasks. From typing to swiping, the Think supports you for a healthier and more productive workday, even when you're seated. The chair has a few updated features, such as a new double synchro ratio (3:5:1), whereas the Original Think worked by way of a 7:1 ratio. Steelcase added a half inch of seat depth and width to fit a wider range of users, and the new Think comes in three finishes instead of the Original's two. We think you'll love the changes!

    2. Is this available with a mesh back?

      Yes, the Think Chair with 3D Knit Back features a breathable mesh back.

    3. I got this in a light color, how can I clean it?

    5. How much assembly is required for this chair?

      The Steelcase Think is a fully assembled ergonomic chair. Just unbox it and sit back in comfort!

    6. How is the standard lumbar support different from the fixed lumbar support?

      The standard lumbar support is adjustable so that you can control where that pressure hits your back. The fixed lumbar support cannot be moved.

    7. What kind of lumbar support is in the Think's back rest?

      Lumbar support comes comes standard, and the New Think's dual-energy lumbar uses two embedded glass resin springs to dynamically support the natural movement of the spine.

      LOVE my chair!

      Posted by Alicia 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!

      Best chair to fit my back

      Posted by Computer_Nerd 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.

      Great Chair, Terrible Headrest

      Posted by Jay W 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.

      Great chair, but ...

      Posted by Peter 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.

      This is a perfect chair

      Posted by Jenny P 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!

    This product comes standard with a limited lifetime warranty.
