    Best-in-Class Performance


    Designed for Movement

    Gesture encourages movement and supports the greatest range of postures in three ways: through the back, the seat and the arms. With 3D LiveBack®, Gesture mimics the natural motion of the spine contouring to the user, creating the deepest recline.


    Designed for Connection

    As you work across multiple devices, Gesture keeps your posture healthy and keeps you connected to your work. The 360 arms allow you to bring the arms up and in towards your body to avoid Text Neck.


    Designed for You

    Everybody’s different, and everybody sits differently, Gesture comfortably supports a range of people. The 360-degree arms have the largest width range of any chair on the market. Ideal for users who sit for long periods of time and prefer a dialed in, precise fit.



    To best understand the body at work, we observed over 2,000 people on six continents in a wide range of postures. Through this study, we found nine new postures that are not adequately addressed by current seating solutions.


    While technology boosts productivity, it can cause pain that disrupts our work, our ability to concentrate, and our creativity.

    From body size and shape to gender and generation, each play a role in the sitting preference of each individual.

    We see work being done in a greater range of spaces within the office. We’re sharing workspaces. We’re spending equal amounts of time at our desk as we are in collaborative spaces.
