Think is the chair with a brain and a conscience. It's intelligent enough to understand how you sit and adjust itself intuitively. It's thoughtful enough to measure and minimize its impact on the environment.

For people who sit

MADE FOR PEOPLE WHO SIT FOR A LIVING

Think is the simplest, most streamlined embodiment of our understanding of people who sit — and how they sit throughout the day.

Our learnings are based on research and collaboration with universities, including the Technical University of Denmark, Michigan State University and the University of Vermont Back Research Center. To scientific studies, we add years of observational research in the
workplace — with people who actually sit for a living.

Wellbeing in the workplace

Wellbeing in the workplace

A MOVEMENT TOWARD WELLBEING

Today, we’re seeing a shift from traditional ergonomics to a more proactive solution that encourages healthy living… one that focuses on the physical, cognitive, and social needs of today’s workforce and understands how they’re related.

For example, movement throughout the day helps increase blood flow to the brain and body, keeping you refreshed and energized.

But what good is movement if it takes you away from your work? You also need to stay oriented to your work as you change postures.

Movement

Movement

MOVEMENT

People need different amounts and kinds of support for each region of the back; support that can change shape to follow the motion of the back.

Pressure map testing helped us design the back flexors to provide dynamic, continuous support for each region of your back, with no pressure points or unsupported zones. Support is evenly distributed as you move in the chair. It’s natural, fluid support that mimics your spine.

Orientation

Orientation

ORIENTATION

People need to change their posture frequently to stay healthy and comfortable, and will do so if their chair allows them to recline, yet stay close to their work while reclining.

The Think chair’s weight-activated mechanism allows you to recline without leaving your ideal vision and reach zone. So you can lean back and be comfortable, and still reach your keyboard and desk.

Fit

People want uncomplicated adjustments.

  • The Think chair’s weight-activated mechanism recognizes your weight and adjusts itself accordingly.
  • The comfort dial allows you to select one of four positions to adjust the amount of back tension and recline.
  • Height, width, pivot and depth adjustable armrests provide personalized support for your arms.
