Design Inspired by the Human Body

Steelcase didn’t begin with a chair design. They looked at the unique movements and Gesture of the body. Like the human body, Gesture is designed as a system of synchronized interfaces.


  • Designed with 3D LiveBack® , the contoured backrest aligns perfectly with your spine’s natural S-shape, providing continuous ergonomic lower back support whether you’re sitting up for a meeting or reclining back and typing a text.
  • A flexible seat edge in the front relieves pressure points under your thighs while the soft edge around the perimeter supports different sitting styles.
  • Fully adjustable 360° arms, mimic the human arm for comfortable support as you work across multiple devices.  As you move, the armrests remain parallel to the worksurface as you move, so you can stay comfortable and connected at every angle of recline.
  • Gesture is ideal for users who prefer a dialed in, precise fit. All adjustments are located on the right-hand side within an arm’s reach—easy to find and use.
  • Gesture features all the standards you expect on a quality, well built task chair.

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.

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

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, quickly adjustable to meet the needs of each individual user. Users can adjust the Gesture chair as easily as adjusting their posture. The culmination of these new finding resulted in the Gesture chair. Inspired by the everyday movement of the human body, the Gesture features:

A New Level In Comfort
The Gesture sports the largest range of adjustments of any Steelcase chair.

Immediate Feedback
Unlike many ergonomic chairs, you’ll notice changes the moment you make them.

Modern design that complements todays office

Steelcase leads the way in creating great experiences by offering a range of architecture, furniture and technology products and services designed to help people reach their full potential.

Our comprehensive portfolio is anchored by three core brands: Steelcase, Coalesse and Turnstone. Together with our partners, we design spaces to help people work, learn and heal.

And because protecting the environment is in our DNA, we drive sustainable social, economic and environmental change through our decisions and actions. 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.

Gesture Chair Care Instructions

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

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.

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