Steelcase received their first patent in 1914 for a steel wastebasket -- a major innovation at a time when straw wastebaskets were a major office fire hazard. That led to metal desks, and they've led the way with product and service innovations ever since. Today, the portfolio of solutions address the three core elements of an office environment: interior architecture, furniture and technology. The company excels in all three areas, providing outstanding home office solutions that are now available through Smart Furniture.</p><p>Steelcase was founded by people with a strong commitment to integrity and doing the right thing for their customers, employees, business partners, associates and neighbors. Their principles became the foundation of the company, passed on from decade to decade.

GESTURE™ Chair
designed by Steelcase Design Studio

At A Glance:
The GESTURE Chair is built to move, and designed specifically to support the wide range of working postures that have appeared since the advent of the smart phone and the tablet. We work - at home and in the office - differently now than we ever have. And the GESTURE Chair's purpose is to help us work more comfortably.

What's To Like:

  • Articulating Arms
    The Steelcase GESTURE Chair has arms with four moving parts, and that allows them to be more adjustable than the arms of any other task chair. They can be kept low and out of the way - or they can be raised to nearly mid-chest and brought in front of your body. That allows them to serve as an elbow support when you need to work with a tablet or smartphone for any length of time. We can't stress enough how cool these arms are. They rock.
     
  • Synchronized Back and Seat
    The GESTURE Chair's seat and back move together (Steelcase calls it a "synchronized system") to cradle you as you lean back or forward. GESTURE's back gives you room to stretch, being flexible enough to bend as you lean back farther. The seat tilts slightly as well. But it doesn't tilt nearly as much as the back. That lesser tilt enables you to keep your feet planted on the floor and creates a sitting pocket so you don't feel like you're sliding off the task chair's seat when you lean back.
     
  • Flexible Seat Edge
    GESTURE's seat has a flexible edge all the way around, enabling you to comfortably sit in nearly any posture you can think of. Steelcase has taken comfort all the way to the edges of this capable task chair's seat.


The Steelcase GESTURE Chair is also known by the following manufacturer item numbers: 442, 442A, 442A30, 442A40.

Obliterates Herman Miller Aeron - outstanding chair

By 

from USA

I'm a tall (6'6") and lean (180lbs) guy who spends 8-12 hours a day in my office chair. I have basically no padding in my butt or legs and a fair amount of muscle. I was given a fully-loaded Herman Miller Aeron chair and hated it from the beginning. The super-firm mesh uncomfortably compresses my thighs and the hard edge all the way around the seat further increases butt and leg discomfort, especially the front edge near my knees.

Karen G suggested the Steelcase Gesture. I was initially hesitant, not wanting to waste another $1000+. Her knowledge plus the generous return policy convinced me to make the leap and I wish I had done it sooner. I got the Elmosoft leather, the wrapped back+headrest, and hard-floor casters.

The Gesture arrived fully assembled in a huge box. It was nice to have no assembly. The chair is incredibly comfortable and everything works smoothly and as expected. The chair bottom has a fore-aft adjustment that is brilliant; I like mine cranked out a bit so that I can have my back at a little more than 90 degrees to my thighs but without tilting the back backwards. The arms have more adjustment options than the Aeron. I'm glad I got the headrest because it's nice when leaning back on a long phone call or to think about something. The leather is a good quality with a nice hand and none of the nasty paint smell that cheap leather can have. It's a bit grippier than other leather furniture I have but over a week or so I grew to like that as well. Really, I can fault nothing with this chair and cannot even think of a suggested improvement.

  • Q:

    Hi,
    Is Steelcase Gesture chair shipped fully assembled? The only review on the site for this chair states that it comes fully assembled out of the box. If that is the case, how much does it weight and what is the size of the box it will be shipped in? Is it possible to request to have it shipped in 2/3 parts instead of having it shipped fully assembled? I need to carry it to second floor, so it would be easier for me to carry them if it doesn't come fully assembled.

    Also, I read your return policy and it states that I have 45 days to return it for free if it's in new and unused condition. What about if I want to return it because it's not comfortable as I thought it would be or reasons other than defect? I would also need to use it for at least few days to see how I like the chair. So, would I still qualify for free return in this case? If not, how much is the return fee?

      A:

      The Gesture Chair ships fully assembled, weighs 78 lbs. and the shipping box has dimensions of: 40 1/4" H x 28 3/4" D x 28 3/4" W. There is no option for anything less than fully assembled when it ships.

      To qualify for the return policy, just keep the chair very clean with no spills, tears, etc. and leave the plastic cover on the base until you know you'll be keeping it. As long as you adhere to our policy for orders under $2k, keep all original packaging and keep it in new condition which should be simple for a few days, you can use it and return it for free within 45 days of receipt. Anything outside this simple return policy is not eligible for a return, free or otherwise.

  • Q:

    Do all Gestures have the fully adjustable arms? The page I configured mine on did not have that as an option.
    Asked on 1/27/2018 by Kilch from Bradenton, FL

    • Smart Furniture Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Yes, the Gesture chair default build has fully adjustable 4D articulating arms included which is why you will not see an option to select them. This is the only type of arm available for the Gesture, and additional information about the arms can be found on the product page when scrolling down just a bit.

    Does this chair have forward tilting?
    Asked on 9/18/2014 by Jaredf from California

    • Smart Furniture Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Yes, the Gesture Chair has seat angle function which allows for a bit of forward tilt on the seat. Here is some additional information about the synchronized back and seat, plus the flexible seat edge which all contribute to all-round comfort:

      Synchronized Back and Seat
      The Gesture Chair's seat and back move together (Steelcase calls it a "synchronized system" to cradle you as you lean back or forward. GESTURE's back gives you room to stretch, being flexible enough to bend as you lean back farther. The seat tilts slightly as well. But it doesn't tilt nearly as much as the back. That lesser tilt enables you to keep your feet planted on the floor and creates a sitting pocket so you don't feel like you're sliding off the task chair's seat when you lean back.

      Flexible Seat Edge
      Gesture's seat has a flexible edge all the way around, enabling you to comfortably sit in nearly any posture you can think of. Steelcase has taken comfort all the way to the edges of this capable task chair's seat.
