Amia™ is chair with secret. Beneath Amia chair's upholstery, inside its sleek backrest, there's form of unique comfort system called LiveLumbar™ technology. You may not see it, but you'll certainly feel it. As you sit in chair, an adjustable LiveLumbar™ zone flexes with your every move, for consistent ergonomic support for your lower back. Hour after hour, day after day. With additional comfort features like 4-way adjustable arms, adjustable seat depth and flexible front seat edge, Amia keeps you feeling good 24/7. It's chair for every day, that's not your everyday chair. The Amia™ chair was designed by Steelcase Design Studio in collaboration with industrial designer, Thomas Overthun of IDEO. very similar collaboration between Steelcase and IDEO resulted in best selling Leap® chair in 1999 and Leap WorkLounge in 2001. Amia chair's shared origin with these products includes ergonomic principles of Alive Seating™ technology, which first appeared in Leap chair. Alive™ Seating technology supports natural movement of body, and led to Amia chair's LiveLumbar™ feature.

For people who dislike the Leap/Aeron lumbar support
KA from New York, NY– Verified Buyer
If you find the Leap and Aeron chairs uncomfortable because the lumbar support irritates your spine, the Amia is a better choice because the lumbar support is more subtle. That being said, this chair is very supportive otherwise.
I have used this chair for over two years. Holds up very well and is super comfortable. One of the best office chairs you can buy. Just about everything is adjustable. And it arrives fully assembled--just unpack and sit!
So far the chair is serving the purpose for which I purchased

I've used for two days only so far only pros no cons
I have become a regular customer of Wayfair for household furnishings. They have never disappointed me, and the most recent purchase has been no exception. I have needed a new desk chair for quite some time, and finally took a day to try out every showroom in town and every ergonomic chair. When I sat in the "Amia," I knew instantly that it was the one--it beat out all the competition. Delivery was punctual, the item was as promised, the upholstery perfect, and I am very very happy. I love this chair and every feature it advertises. If you are in the market, I highly recommend this one by Steelcase, but there are several other in the line that are also excellent. The Steelcase "Leap," for example, is very much like the "Amia," but a little heavier--probably perfect for a man's frame. But finding the right chair really and truly requires the "toosh test." Invest the time and try out all the top competitors--your research will pay off in the 'end.'
I work at home as a freelance writer. I could not find a comfortable chair, for more years than I could say. I tried a friend's Leap chair and loved it. But they are expensive. I read reviews & found out that the Amia has most of the features of the Leap chair at a lower price. I'm glad I got this one. There is no assembly. It's so obvious how to adjust, you need nothing extra, no help.
Steelcase began in 1912 as The Metal Office Furniture Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan. They 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, their portfolio of solutions address the three core elements of an office environment: interior architecture, furniture and technology.
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 their company, passed on from decade to decade. "Living our core values is essential to our identity, reputation and success today, just as it was in the past."
