Product Details
Weight & Dimensions
Its back moves as your back moves. Its arms move as your arms move. Its seat moves as your seat moves. It's first chair actually changes shape to mimic and support movement of your spine. As result of 11 studies with over 700 participants conducted across 4 universities amongst 27 scientists, Leap® chair is backed by four years of research and embodies ergonomic discoveries made by Steelcase Design Studio and IDEO.

Ergonomic Functions:
    a. LiveBack®
    The Leap® chair'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.

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

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

    d. 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.

    e. Height, D, W, 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.

    f. 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 the spine.

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

    h. 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.

Steelcase Leap Mid-Back Upholstered Office Chair


Love it

 from CA

I first got this chair at work due to an office upgrade. After a year of comfort at 50-60 hours a week I hated my chair at home more and mow. So, I bought one myself for home. No, it's not cheap. Yes you get what you pay for.

I use it at the dinner table, too.

 from Long Beach, CA– Verified Buyer

Good thing for the wheels. The chair is so versatile and addictive that I move it from the computer desk to the dinner table, to the TV room, to the library. That should say it all.

Should not have waited to buy this chair

 from Duvall, WA– Verified Buyer

Waited over a year to finally but this chair. I was so concerned that I'd be throwing good money after bad but I was wrong. It is absolutely the most comfortable office chair I've had in 30 years. Wish I had gotten it sooner. This review was written after 4 weeks of 40+ hour a week usage.

Manufacturer Details
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."
