Top customer reviews
1.Many business offices today are collaborative. Office walls and doors have come down and workers move one location to another often for short sessions.
2.Workers who spend long hours at one location sitting in one chair often no longer engage in just one task. One person may be sitting at a traditional keyboard for a period, then sit back and work with a tablet device, only to move into a relaxed mode to share thoughts with co-workers, then might pull his/her chair over to a group brainstorming session.
3.Many individuals work in non-traditional work spaces including their home where they may share the same workspace with other family members.
4.The image of a worker sitting bolt upright dressed in a suit or dress, posed to “look important” has pretty much been obliterated by no one caring how someone “looks” in their chair.
Recently I went shopping for an office chair to replace my “fancy leather” one that was falling apart, the victim of both long hours in it and being cheap when I originally bought it. I went to several office supply stores and business furniture specialty stores and sat in dozens of traditional and non-traditional chairs and was dismayed that none of them were comfortable, and some caused discomfort within minutes. They looked cool, all right, but I could not find a single one that I could spent hours sitting in.
The Think Chair wasn’t among them, of course, because it is a new product. It defies almost everything I’ve ever felt I’ve known about business office furniture. It will be hard to convey in words what a chair feels like when you sit in it, of course. Every body is built differently and it is a daunting task for any chair to be able to feel comfortable to a never-ending variety of body shapes and sizes.
But that is exactly what sets this chair apart from the me-too pack of look-alike chairs that have dominated work areas for so many years. This one, in fact, might be called a “smart chair” because when you sit in it, the chair senses the way you are sitting, your weight, and how you shift it around while working. So for example, it is not uncommon for me to have a “normal” posture when I first sit in my chair, then when I start to work on a document that requires typing I lean way back. A while later I may be working on photo editing and am hunched forward using my graphic tablet and then a phone call comes in and I lean way back and kick my feet up on something. Unlike any chair I have ever used, the Think Chair compensates for all of those changes and optimizes itself without me making any changes to the settings.
Now, the chair may be smart but it isn’t my brain, so at any time I have the option of adjusting such things as height, back tension, lumbar support, armrest height and all kinds of little tweaks to make myself comfortable and when I shift around the chair keeps my preferences in mind while easing itself into complementary postures. The closest I can come to describing the action is like certain elliptical exercise equipment that adjusts itself as you use it.
At first it seems like you are going to go flying wildly out of control because we are so used to chairs that do nothing but tilt and swivel. More times than one I leaned back and felt like I was a bit helpless as the chair silently and effortlessly assumed a different, but yet always supportive, position.
As far as aesthetics, the Think Chair is elegantly minimalistic. Having shopped the various office furniture stores there is frankly nothing quite like it in terms of the look and feel of excellence of materials and construction. The metal components are absolutely first-class, in fact in some ways reminiscent of seating in first-class of certain overseas airlines. The same may be said about the fabric, a unique “padded mesh” that breathes like mesh but has the softness of upholstered fabric. The chair is available in several colors (I want them all, the choice is hard to make) but the electric blue (what they call Blue Jay) of the one I have is probably the most like I would imagine Captain Kirk would sit in to command the Enterprise.
What’s not to like? This comes down to more to personal preference than design issues. For example, to me the armrests seem like an afterthought on a chair so comfortable and well-designed. They are a semi-soft rubbery material. I’m a person who likes to rest my elbow on the armrest and hold my chin while I’m “thinking”. I’m used to a soft armrest. I guess with this chair I’ll just have to get used to doing less thinking. The black color of the armrests, to me, looks a bit too generic. I’m not sure I would want it to match the fabric but maybe some other shade of darker blue? I like that they adjust up/down, forward/back, tilt/swivel, etc. but the only one of those positions that locks in place is up/down. I prefer not to have my armrest suddenly move if I bump against it. The other (minor) quibble is that the legs stick out further from the center shaft than usual. My old chair is 11” per leg and this one is 13” per leg. Until I get used to it, every time I swing my chair around my ankles hit the end of the leg.
Unlike most office chairs, this one comes 100% fully assembled so there is nothing to adjust or be out of adjustment. The box is rather large (and heavy) so if you’re ordering it you may want to arrange for the delivery person to leave it in a location when you can unbox it and then carry the assembled chair to its final destination. Steelcase includes an excellent user guide to help you learn how to customize each adjustment to your own preference.
As far as value for the price, it’s necessary to keep in mind that this is a commercial office product and as such it is very competitively priced with other quality office chairs. For some it may be a little pricier than what you are used to for a home-office chair but if (like me) you spend a lot of time working at a desk, once you sit in this chair you will never question if it’s worth the money. It is.
Before I actually used the chair for a while I was pretty convinced that it would not be possible to rank it as “best” (I was thinking of words like “different”). But it didn’t take long for me to form the opinion that this is likely the most comfortable office chair I’ve ever sat in, regardless of brand, style or price. It’s really a night vs. day comparison to an “average” office chair. Steelcase has raised the bar in every possible way.
An office chair is important to me. Comfort and posture are not trivial matters. All things considered I would rate this chair as “I like it” (4-stars) but because it is so ridiculously comfortable and supportive I am compelled to tell you what I would tell anyone who asks me … I love it and Amazon defines that as earning 5-star.
First of all, the chair feels cheap. For an 850 chair, one would think it would a quality build on the chair. All of the components are plastic, and the chair seat itself is awful. The 3D mesh is nice, but this leads me onto the next point..
Secondly, the lumbar support is terrible. It's supposed to be adjustable, but it does NOT traverse over the pack plastic rows at all, leaving it very uncomfortable when you lean back. Additionally, as I was adjusting the lumbar support, the little plastic tabs on the side snapped off. Its possible to insert it back into the support beam, but it was not the same after.
Third, the lumbar support does not stay in the position you place it. This may be because the adjustment tabs broke, but after leaning into it for a while, the lumbar support would simply fall back to the very bottom position.
Returned this within a day of use. I read great reviews for Steelcase chairs, but I will never buy one again if this is the standard of their quality for something so expensive.
