Crew Armchair by Steelcase
designed by Brian Kane

Steelcase Crew Task Chair

At A Glance:
Simple and reliable, the Crew Task Chair shows off an impressive set of adjustment options and an ability to conform to just about any occupant.

What's To Like:
For the price you get a ton of well-made, stable comfort. Steelcase is a reliable, experienced manufacturer of quality task chairs, and the Crew Chair is no exception. Casters, optional adjustable arms, tilt, and seat height adjustment give it flexibility for any task.

What's Not to Like:
It's a little less adjustable than you'd like it to be if you're going to be sitting in it for upwards of 8 hours. But for the price, it'll be hard to find a more adjustable task chair.

The Bottom Line:
The Crew Task Chair comes with a set of intuitive controls that's hard to beat given its price. Designed by Brian Kane, whose body of work includes the immensely popular Leap Chair, Crew comes with the functionality and comfort of task chairs that often cost multiples of Crew's price.

Dimensions
Overall: 39.6-44.6" h x 26.5" w x 26" d
Seat height: 16" to 21"
Seat width: 19.5"

Arms
The Crew Chair comes with standard fixed-height arms, with an option to add height/width-adjustable arms.

Sturdy Base
A 5-point aluminum black base with hard plastic casters (carpet or hard floor) gives Crew a steady platform.

Adjustable Seat and Back Height
A pneumatic piston powers the seat's height adjustments and gets you to the level at which you need to sit, while the back raises and lowers to reach a comfortable height.

Optional Features
Non-marring plastic glides and a platinum powder-coated aluminum frame can be added if desired.

Brian Kane

Brian Kane- Designer of the Leap Chair

Kane's ideals are realized through his design of the Steelcase Leap Chairs.

"I believe that less is more - I'd call myself a minimalist - or even a reductionist. I strive for simplification in both form and manufacturing processes. Achieving uniqueness through simplicity is not an easy task but is truly rewarding when it is realized."

A few of the awards that Brian Kane's Leap Chair has won are listed below. In total, Kane has won over 80 design awards. He's been exhibited at the Whitney and Brooklyn Museums in New York and the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco. If you've been in an airport, bank, or hotel, then you've likely seen one of Kane's designs. If you're lucky, you've sat in his newly designed Steelcase Leap Chair.

  • Editor's Choice Award (NeoCon)

A Background and Brief Bio of Brian Kane

Kane graduated form the University of Bridgeport Connecticut with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design. Afterward, he spent some time working in several design studios in New York City and a year in Milan, Italy. Upon his return, he joined Metropolitan Furniture Corporation in 1977. Kane became one of the four partners at Metro in less than three years after joining. In 1987, Steelcase acquired the company, but allowed Kane to remain Vice President, responsible for all aspects of Metro's design, products, and showrooms.

Kane also helped design the first collection of OFFI furniture through Turnstone, which is another Steelcase company. At Turnstone, Kane made quite a name for himself. A few of his products include the Martini Table, the extensive Sweeper seating line, Crew seating, Jenny lounge, Reply casegoods, and Jacket and Jersey task seating. His Pet lounge chair won a Silver Award for Stackable Seating at NeoCon in 2004 for being constructed of recycled soft drink plastic bottles.

"It's very easy to design something that's complicated. It's really difficult to design something that's simple, and offers uniqueness through its simplicity." With such bold statements and designs, it's easy to see why Steelcase took an interest in Kane and his companies.

Currently, Kane is a member of the Industrial Design Society Association. He lives in San Francisco and operates a product development firm, Kane Design Studio. His studio's goal is is to give their clients as complete a finished product as possible and guide them through their internal development process through models, prototypes, and engineered concepts.

Very supportive chair.

Comments about Steelcase Crew Chair:

After using regular chair for sewing, I took a plunge and buying this chair. What a difference!. i can sit for longer hours without straining my back and neck. I love the feature which I can adjust the height of the chair. Sure, it is rather expensive; but it is worth the investment especially for sewer like me. This is my second time buying a chair from this web site. My husband bought his office chair last year (different type); he loves it so much. Because he stopped complaining about his back while sitting long hours; I decided to buy this chair for my sewing room.

      Comments about Steelcase Crew Chair:

      I have an older model of the Steelcase chair that I purchased here. I looked at other options b4 purchasing but determined this to be the best value that met my needs. I've been using the chair for two weeks and am pleased with the purchase.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Smart offered the chair at a very competitive price and I could not be happier with their execution of the order. The chair arrived in the time frame promised. Smart's communication during the process kept me well informed. I would order again from them.

        Comments about Steelcase Crew Chair:

        The arms that came with the chair are fully adjustable, with swiveling armrests. As such, there is a lot of "play" and wiggle in the mechanism, which isn't so good.

          Love it and the company. Excellent product details and quality. Great sales experience. I will be back for more.

          Service and delivery comments:

          delivery was timely, informational emails to keep me up to date on the shipping, packaged so well i didn't know it was my chair at first. When I wanted to cancel my original order which didn't have adjustable arm rests, customer service advised me of other options and even gave me a courtesy credit adjustment to keep my business.

              A:

              The Crew Chair by Steelcase has adjustable back height, upright back lock, tilt tension, and pneumatic seat height adjustment, but it does not have additional lumbar support. This is definitely a lot of chair for the money!

              A:

              If you opt for the height and width adjustable arms or the fully adjustable arms, yes. Height/Width Adjustable Arms have a distance between the arms of 17.75"–19.5" and Fully Adjustable Arms have a distance between the arms of 12.25"–19.5".
