People change their postures and positions multiple times throughout each work day - that means they need a chair that will move with them and provide ultimate support. Based on scientific research from such acclaimed institutions as the Technical University of Denmark, Michigan State University and the University of Vermont, the designers at Steelcase came up with an office chair that perfectly understands the way people sit when they're at work: the Think Chair. The Think Chair is known for its state-of-the-art ergonomic features that are not only designed with the working man or woman in mind, but that intuitively adjust for an individual's comfort as well. This modern chair, which has won several awards, including the 2014 Environmental Leader Product Award, includes these features:
Integrated LiveBack system
Comfort dial for back support
Between its beautiful aesthetic and its scientifically advanced ergonomic features, the Think Chair is the perfect addition to any home or office design
Steelcase Think Chair Features
A highly adjustable chair, Think is available in a variety of materials, colors and customizable features so you can get a product that's perfect for you. With so many ergonomically sound components, the chair is a testament to Steelcase's innovation and design process.
Integrated LiveBack System
Think's seatback is made of a system of back flexors that make up what designers call the Integrated LiveBack System. The system allows users to move naturally, leaning forward and backward and adjusting their positions as needed, without forfeiting comfort or support. The Integrated LiveBack System moves seamlessly with you in an intuitive and fluid way, ensuring each region of your back is supported at all times.
The Think Chair has a weight-activated mechanism that allows the seat and backrest to work together. The result? Sitters can recline in a controlled way, while still being able to easily reach their workspace. Designers crafted the mechanism to ensure maximum comfort without sacrificing productivity.
Dual-Energy Adjustable Lumbar Support (Optional)
A comfort dial on the side of the seatback allows you to adjust the level of lumbar support. Choose between four different lumbar settings, each of which provides a unique type of recline and support. Find your preferred lumbar support, but adjust the dial as needed throughout the day for maximum comfort.
Adjustable Armrests (Optional)
Designers had full customizability in mind when creating the Think Chair, which means the chair can even come with adjustable armrests. Arms can be changed by height, width, depth and degree of pivot, all of which are meant to provide the perfect place to rest your arms in the most natural position possible.
Steelcase opened in 1912 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, as The Metal Office Furniture Company. The company's first product? A fire-proof metal waste basket that could replace more flammable wooden materials that were a large part of office designs at the time. Co-founders and designers Peter M. Wege and Chris Stone went on to use the same metal technology to produce a fireproof office desk.
Since then, between partnerships with such designers as Frank Lloyd Wright and a period spent building steel furniture for the U.S. Navy during World War II, the brand has made a name for itself in the world of home and office furniture. Steelcase's designers are dedicated to creating products that are at once revolutionarily innovative and elegantly stylish.

Basic maintenance should be done on chair upholstery, finishes, controls, base, and other moving parts once a year. More frequently with heavy use.
Removing fabric upholstery stains or heavy soil:
- Soak up excess any stain with a cloth. Do not dry the stain completely or it may set.
- For most water-borne stains (coffee, fruit juice, washable ink), use an upholstery cleaning solution and follow package directions.
- For oil-borne stains, use a dry-cleaning solution at room temperature (never hot) and allow solution to work into stain. Using quick, light strokes, brush stain with a soft bristle brush. Work from outside toward the center to prevent rings. Avoid vigorous rubbing which may damage the nap or force the stain more deeply into the material. Soak up remaining dry-cleaning solution and sponge the fabric with cool water.
- Allow fabric to dry completely, then vacuum thoroughly. If stain is still evident, repeat procedure. Several light applications of cleaning solution are more effective/less damaging than one heavy application.
