Steelcase will introduce the Gesture task chair

The Wall Street Journal has also picked up the coming introduction of Steelcase’s Gesture. In the article they mention a suggested retail price of USD 780 to 880.

American professional furniture producer Steelcase will introduce the Gesture task chair in the fall of 2013.

1 Gesture by Steelcase

Acording to Steelcase, ‘Technology is the single greatest force driving the changes in the way we work, live and behave. The new, multiple devices we deploy throughout our work day allow us to flow between tasks, fluidly, and frequently. Gesture is the first chair designed to support our interactions with today’s technologies. It was inspired by the movement of the human body. Created for the way we work today.’

The development of the Gesture is based on global study conducted by Steelcase WorkSpace Futures and the Steelcase Design Studio. They undertook a global posture study in 11 countries, observing 2000 people in a wide range of postures and uncovered nine new postures as a result of new technologies and behaviours.

They studied how the human body interacts with technologies and how it responds as workers shift from one device to another. Research revealed ergonomic implications that, if not adequately addressed, can cause pain and discomfort for workers.
Based on this research, Steelcase designed Gesture to support posture changes specifically influenced by technology devices we use today.

Steelcase says they didn’t start with a chair design: ‘We started by looking at the unique movements and gestures of the body. Like the human body, Gesture is designed as a system of synchronized interfaces.’
