"I've ordered three different Office Chairs over the past month. This is the first one to arrive
that was as described online. It's also very comfortable!"

Inspired by the movement of the human
body, Gesture is the first office chair designed to
support our interactions with today's technologies.
Gesture is created for the way we work today. To best
understand the body at work, we undertook a global
posture study on six continents, observing over 2,000
people in a wide range of postures. We discovered
that new technologies combined with new behaviors
led to nine new postures that are not adequately addressed
by current seating solutions.
Designing for Sustainability
We believe the only way to provide the best office
furniture solutions is to ensure they’re the best
products for the environment. That’s why every step
of the way – through design, manufacturing, delivery
and product lifecycle – we consider the impact of
our work on people and on the environment and uncover
opportunities to make things better.
Features of the Steelcase Gesture
The New Sitting Experience
- We didn’t start with a chair design; we started
by looking at the unique movements and gestures
of the body.
Greater Range of Technology
- Gesture supports movement between devices and
healthy postures when interacting with technology.
The Gesture 360 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 on a
tablet, helping to prevent “Text Neck™“.
Greater Range of Postures
- The changing nature of work has affected our postures.
As work has become more collaborative and mobile
our postures have shifted. Gesture supports the
greatest range of postures in three ways: through
the back, the seat and the arms. With 3D LiveBack,
Gesture changes shape and mimics the natural motion
of the spine contouring to the user, creating the
deepest recline. Adaptive bolstering allows Gesture’s
seat to contour to the size of any user providing
Greater Range of Users -
We know that today’s workplace has to accommodate
a wide range of users sizes. Most chairs are only
designed to fit one person: the average. Gesture
solves for the broadest range of sizes. Whether
large or small, Gesture promises personalized and
custom comfort for all users in one simple solution,
all while utilizing a minimal footprint.
Optional Headrest - Until
now, headrests have largely been an afterthought,
but the Gesture headrest is integrated into the
design. The design of the Gesture headrest takes
into consideration features such as factors head
size, neck length and desired range of motion to
support a greater range of user sizes. Through this
intentional design, the Gesture headrest not only
provides comfort and support, but also offers an
unprecedented range of motion. This results in more
choice and control over work postures. Gesture headrest
range of motion: 5-inch range of height adjustment
4 inches of forward and backward pivot movement
90° of rotation
Weight tested and warranted up
to 400 lbs. with no loss of performance.
