Steelcase has developed an affordable material that offers all of the advantages of carbon. The result is a robust office chair that reacts flexibly to its user’s movements.
Gesture is the first chair designed to support our interactions with today's technologies.
Gesture Recognition for the Body
Technology is the single greatest force driving the changes in the way we work, live and behave. The new, multiple devices we deploy throughout our work day allow us to flow between tasks, fluidly, and frequently. Gesture is the first office chair designed to support our interactions with today’s technologies. Inspired by the human body. Created for the way we work today.
A New Sitting Experience
To design a new sitting experience, we stopped looking at chairs and started looking at people. Understanding posture at work and how the body naturally moves caused us to ask, “could a chair act as a system, just like human body?” This question caused us to fundamentally rethink how to design a chair. When we studied the full range of postures at work, we studied three key interfaces between the human body and their chair.
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 into consideration.
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:
- 15 cm range of height adjustment
- 10 cm of forward and backward pivot movement
- 90° of rotatio
