Leap is proven to reduce musculoskeletal disorders and increase productivity at work. People using it report significantly less back pain and discomfort, and their musculoskeletal symptoms are lower than those of people not using Leap.

That’s why Leap is the high-performance chair that sets you free to be a star performer.

A Unique Medical Study

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

Insights

  • The spine doesn’t move as a single unit.
  • Each individual’s spinal motion is unique.
  • The upper and lower back regions require different amounts and different kinds of support.
  • When you lean backwards, your pelvis moves forward.

Increase in Productivity

Increase in Productivity

Jump in Productivity by 17.8%

In an office user study with 200 people, those participants who received both a Leap chair and office ergonomics training greatly reduced their absenteeism and their back pain, and as a consequence, directly increased their productivity in one year. That meant each Leap chair paid for itself in less than 10 days.

Materials

According to McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC) strict protocol, Leap contains no hazardous materials. Leap is made from 23% recycled materials. Its packaging consists of cardboard and LDPE film (low density polyethylene) that both contain 30% recycled material.

Production

The production site in Sarrebourg (France) is ISO 14001 certified. Powder-coat painting is VOC-free and free of heavy metals. No gluing processes are used in assembly, and all urethane foam is water-based.

Transport

To reduce shipping distances, the Leap chair is manufactured close to customers, in Europe and North America. Leap’s weight has been  educed by 20%, thus requires less energy for shipping.

Use

The textiles release no toxic substances during use of the product, thanks to the Oeko-Tex 100 Standard on the polyester fabric and the European Flower ecolabel on wool fabric.

End of life

Leap is 98% recyclable by weight. Leap is easy to disassemble using normal hand tools, and will be taken back and recycled with the new  Steelcase Environmental Partnership Program.
