Everybody’s different.  Everybody sits differently.  Gesture supports a wide range of people and sitting styles  – from slacker to gamer and get-it-done-on-time-under-budget types. The arms have the largest width range of any chair on the market and can rotate 360-degrees. Ideal for those who sit for long periods of time and prefer a dialed in, precise fit.

Voted best office chair, its 360-degree arms, contoured back and adjustments are designed for all the ways technology shapes your posture.

Global Posture Study

The global study was conducted by Steelcase WorkSpace Futures and the Steelcase Design Studio.

Steelcase undertook a global posture study in 11 countries, observing 2000 people in a wide range of postures and uncovered nine new postures as a result of new technologies and behaviors. Steelcase studied how the human body interacts with technologies and how it responds as workers shift from one device to another. Research revealed ergonomic implications that, if not adequately addressed, can cause pain and discomfort for workers.

Because these new postures are not adequately supported, workers are uncomfortable, in pain, and doing long-term harm to their bodies. While technology boosts productivity, it can cause pain that disrupts our work, our ability to concentrate, and our creativity.

Design: Inspired by the Human Body

We didn’t start with a chair design. We started by looking at thGesture Core insterfacee unique movements and gestures of the body. Like the human body, Gesture is designed as a system of synchronized interfaces.

1) The Core Interface.

  • The Gesture back and seat move as a synchronized system moving with each user to provide continuous and persistent support.
  • The back cradles the user no matter the posture or device.

2) The Limb Interface:

  • The Gesture arm moves like the human arm, which allows users to be supported in any position.
  • Arms and shoulders remain supported when texting on a smartphone, typing on a keyboard or swiping a tablet.

3) The Seat Interface:

  • The Gesture seat brings comfort all the way to the edges.
  • It is flexible at the perimeter to allow users to sit in a range of postures without obstruction.

The User Interface:

  • Gesture takes into account various body types and sitting preferences and quickly adjusts to meet the needs of each individual.
  •  Users can adjust the Gesture chair as easily as adjusting their posture.
