At Steelcase, we don’t just do what’s right, we do what’s best - for people and for the planet.

Established in 1912 as the Metal Office Furniture Company, our first patent for a metal wastebasket meant safety for office workers. In crowded cities where fires spread quickly, replacing wicker with steel was a lifesaving innovation. Founders Peter M. Wege, Walter D. Idema and David D. Hunting built the business in Grand Rapids, Michigan - a city then known as “The Furniture City” because of its many wood furniture manufacturers.

By 1919 the company began to establish its dealer network, making desks, cabinets and other products available nationwide. Officially known as Steelcase Inc. beginning in 1954, the company grew globally and executed the largest single shipment in the industry in 1973, providing over 400 truckloads of furniture for Chicago’s Sears Tower. Steelcase became publicly traded in 1998. We’ve been looking forward since the beginning. From our early years to 21st-century breakthroughs, Steelcase turns insights into innovations and pushes limits to transform and reimagine the workplace.

Is a Steelcase Gesture worth it?

Inspired by the Human Body's natural movement, Gesture takes into account various body types and sitting preferences, quickly adjustable to meet the needs of each individual user. Users can adjust the Gesture chair as easily as adjusting their posture.

How Heavy is the Steelcase Gesture?

The Gesture chair by Steelcase weights 78 lbs

How are Steelcase Gesture chairs better than a more inexpensive chair?

Built to last and with all of the ergonomic adjustments rolled into one great chair, the Gesture Chair will be the last office chair your purchase.

Does the Steelcase Gesture Chair offer Lumbar support?

The Gesture has great lumbar support! The back contour is curved so as to fit right into your lower back and encourage you to roll your shoulders back and sit up straight.

Is the Gesture Chair hot?

The upholstered seat and back can feel a bit warm if you tend to run hot. The Cogent Connect fabric offers a bit more breathability with its double layered fabric that allows for air flow.

How Long will a Steelcase Gesture Chair Last?

Made with high-density seat foam and sturdy plastic frame, the Gesture is built to last. A 12 year warranty helps, too!

Upholstery options include Era fabric, and Cogent Connect fabric.

Era is a subtle, two tone polyester fabric containing stretch in both directions for ease of upholstery. The baby herringbone weave offers an understated contemporary texture while its coloring technique provides close up intrigue. The palette incorporates playful brights and sophisticated muted tones.

Cogent Connect Fun, modern colors. It has an even hole pattern and is very smooth and durable. Softer and more breathable than Era.

Era and Cogent Connect are all made from 100% antimony-free polyester, and are rated at 100,000 double rubs on the Wyzenbeek Test. We suggest googling “Wyzenbeek Test” if you’re not sure what it that is, but it’s basically a machine-driven test that measures the durability of fabrics.

Black: Black frame, base, arms, and cylinders

Light: Platinum Metallic frame, with Seagull seat perimeter and back, and Dark Grey arms

Dark/Light: Platinum Metallic frame, with Dark Grey seat perimeter, back, and arms

You can choose either an exposed plastic shell back, a Wrapped Back (which is upholstered to the top of the frame), or a Wrapped Back and Added Headrest.

Select to add additional lower back support with an adjustable lumbar.

Carpet Casters are made of hard plastic, and work well on carpet.

Hard Floor Casters are softer, with a polyurethane tread, which gives better traction on hard surfaces without the rolling noise of the harder casters.
