Fabric options include Buzz 2 and Cogent Connect fabrics, as well as the the 3d-Knit Back/Cogent Seat option. Leather seat and back also available.

Buzz 2 is a tightly-knit polyester fabric. Extremely durable, this fabric will last the long haul. It has a raised dimple pattern and is textured with a coarser finish.

Cogent Connect fabric comes in fun iPod colors. It has an even hole pattern and is very smooth and durable. Softer and more breathable than Buzz 2.

In the 3D-Knit Back/Cogent Seat version, the horizontal flexors lining the back of the Think Chair are covered by an ultra-breathable 3D-Knit mesh. This semi-transparent mesh has a cushioned loft to it, but its light knit keeps the sitter cool. Comes with matching Cogent Connect seat.

Buzz 2, Cogent Connect, and 3D-Knit are all made from 100% antimony-free polyester. Buzz 2 and Cogent Connect are rated 100,000 double rubs on the Wyzenbeek Test. 3D-Knit is rated at 100,000 double rubs.

Elmosoft Leather is a soft and pliable Semi-Aniline leather known for its comfort and durability. Natural markings add to the elegant quality of Elmosoft Leather.

No Arms: best for those who need more than 20.25" between the armpads or if you need clearance less than 7" above the seat. (You'll notice this isn't offered online, call our sales team at 888.467.6278 to order sans arms)

Fixed Arms: These arms do not move and are fixed at 10.5" above the seat. Width between fixed arms is 19".

Fully adjustable Arms: Height-, width-, depth- and pivot-adjustable arms are the absolute best. This option allows you to move the arms up and down in a 4" range that allows the arms to be 7-11" above the seat. Arm depth adjusts approximately 3" to enable user to get closer to worksurface and have a pivot range of 30° in and out. Arm width can also be adjusted 2.25" each, 4.5" overall for the distance between the arms to range 15.25"–19.75".

Think Work Stool by Steelcase
designed by Glen Oliver Low

At A Glance: As you might expect, the Think Stool has a number of the same features as its better known progenitor the Think Chair. The ideas behind both the chair and stool are the same- lots of optional upgrades so you only pay for what you want.

What's To Like: Not least amongst the upgrades is the flexible headrest. Even better is the convenient ability to retrofit the stool with the headrest at a later date. Also, the fully adjustable arms have all kinds of pivoting abilities.

What's Not to Like:Some folks don't like the look of the Think Stool, but that's just a matter of opinion. As far as the quality of the stool goes, there's nothing to second guess.

The Bottom Line: It's rare to find a tall work stool of this quality with this many ergonomic features and fabric/leather options.

  • Optional headrest can be retrofitted at a later date
  • Available in durable Buzz 2 fabric, breathable Cogent Connect fabric, or Elmo Soft Leather
  • Optional lumbar support adjusts vertically along the back 4.25"
  • 2.5" dual wheel casters for carpet or hard floors
  • Arms available in fixed height or depth, width, and pivot adjustable
