Product Overview

Gesture Office Chair

The newest innovation in ergonomic seating: Gesture is designed to work all the ways you work.

More now than ever, our business is conducted through smartphones, tablets, and laptops. The generational spread of the office is increasing too, with decades of professionals working together. With all this change happening around us, Steelcase set out to create a chair that reflects the way we work and live. Introducing the new Gesture office chair by Steelcase.


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.

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.

Unparalleled Style
Modern design that complements todays office

Design Story


    We're an authorized Steelcase retailer. This means we're official. We sell new factory-direct items complete with Steelcase's own warranty. You can purchase confidently from Office Designs knowing you'll be receiving genuine Steelcase product.


    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.
