Leap Work Stool
by Steelcase Design Studio in conjunction with IDEO

Steelcase Leap Work StoolAt A Glance:
11 studies, 732 test participants, 4 universities and 27 scientists.

What happens when you assemble a team of ergonomic experts and ask them to figure out how to make the world's best performance seating?

Concerned about the rising incidence of back problems, they used LED lights and time-lapse photography to record how people's backs behaved when they sat in chairs. They continued their research over four years, and 732 test participants later, they had answers.

What their research revealed became Steelcase's rule book for designing the Leap Work Stool.

What's To Like:

  • This is a great stool for a fidgeter, someone who can't help but feel restless in a standard office stool.
  • Its back, arms and seat move as you move. It's the first work stool that actually changes shape to mimic and support the movement of your spine.

  • All that, plus the Leap Stool is built to last with a glass-reinforced nylon base and powder-coated steel and polypropylene frame.

What's Not to Like:
Once you buy a stool you're committed - you'll be sitting at a higher desk and that's that. Also, the starting price on this stool is over $900, which is pretty steep. You can get a lot of great office stools with some of the same features for a lot less dough. But that doesn't mean you should. This could be the best stool, and the price tag shows that Steelcase knows it.

The Bottom Line:
It's hard to picture any stool being more comfortable or better designed than the Leap Work Stool. As it is, the price tag isn't pretty but the stool is. And the ergonomics of the back and seat are hard to beat. This is high quality for low dollar.

Overall: 46-54" h x 27" w x 24.75" d
Seat height; 22" to 30"
Arm height: 7" to 11"
Arm width: 13" to 20"

Live Back
The Leap Stool's back changes shape to support the entire spine. This can reduce the chance of lower back sag and a hunched posture, which may weaken disc walls, stress back ligaments and cause deterioration of the spine.

Thermal Comfort
Thanks to slats in both its back and seat, and the special foam it uses, the Leap Stool offers excellent "breathability." It effectively controls the balance of heat and moisture so you stay comfortable.

Adjustable Seat Depth
People don't fit neatly into average body sizes. leg and torso lengths can vary independent of a person's overall height. Adjustable seat depth accommodates different body shapes for long-term comfort.

Lower Back Firmness
Lower back firmness control enables you to set a constant amount of firmness to help maintain your lower spine's natural curve.

Height, Depth, Width and Pivot Arms
Arms telescope in and out, move forward and back, pivot and adjust up and down so you can find a natural position that comfortably supports the wrists, forearms, shoulders and neck.

Natural Glide System
As you recline, the seat glides forward so you can recline without leaving your vision and reach zone, so you stay oriented to your work. This encourages more varied postures so there's less static load on your spine.

Flexible Seat Edge
When you recline or lean forward, the seat edge flexes to relieve pressure on the back of the legs.

Upper Back Force
Upper back force control enables you to set the amount of ''push back'' that you desire as you recline, regardless of body size. So you'll receive just the right amount of recline support.

        The Ring on the Leap Stool travels with the adjustment of the seat. The numbers are based on the fact that max foot ring is the highest adjustment that the Foot ring goes up, and the min foot ring is the lowest adjustment that the foot ring goes.

        11” at Minimum Seat Height and Maximum Foot ring height
        6” at Maximum Seat Height and Maximum Foot ring height

        12 ½ “ at Minimum Seat Height and Minimum Foot ring height
        16 ½ “ at Maximum Seat Height and Minimum Foot ring height

        The Seat Height of the Stool from the floor is 22” to 30”

        The Foot ring has an adjustment of 4”
