    Design Story​

    The Amia chair was designed by the Steelcase Design Studio, in collaboration with industrial designer, Thomas Overthun of IDEO. ​

    “Innovations such as the LiveLumbar mechanism​ have been incorporated into the overall shape​ rather than made explicit on the chair’s​ outside. Technology quietly serving, rather than​ drawing attention to itself, seemed appealing​ in the context of today’s information overload.​ This combined with an attention to detail and​ materials allowed us to realize Amia’s calm and​ refined design.”​

    Motion Study

    At Steelcase, we constantly invest in user research as part of our product design process. Amia was inspired by three key discoveries revealed in a unique global medical study we conducted over four years with 732 users.

    Upper + Lower Back

    The upper and lower back regions require different amounts and different kinds of support.

    Amia’s Solution

    The lumbar and thoracic areas are differently supported:

    • Amia’s LiveLumbar™ support is designed to sense movement in your back and self-adjust to provide optimal support.
    • The tilt tension gives support to the higher part of the backrest

    The Spine

    Since the spine does not move as a single unit, a chair’s backrest should change shape to support the independent movements of a person’s upper and lower back when he/she changes posture.

    Spinal Motion
    Since each individual’s spinal motion is unique, a chair’s backrest should mimic each individual’s unique spinal motion as he/she changes posture.

    Sustainability ImpactOpen image tooltip

    Sustainability Impact

    We work towards better futures for the planet by designing and manufacturing products that respect our natural world, while helping to restore its resources. To do this we: reduce our carbon footprint, design for circularity and choose and use materials responsibly.

    Amia does not contain PVC and uses string, instead of glue, to bound textile with foam. This eliminates the need for additional materials and enables easier recyclability.

    Amia has a third-party verified Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for complete lifecycle environmental impact transparency, is NF Environment certified and has indoor air quality (IAQ) certification through Scientific Certification Systems Indoor Advantage™ Gold.
