Gesture is the first chair designed to support our interactions with today's technologies.

Features

RANGE OF TECHNOLOGY

Gesture supports movement between devices and healthy postures when interacting with technology.

The Gesture 360 arm moves like the human arm, which allows users to be supported in any position. Arms and shoulders remain supported when texting on a smartphone, typing on a keyboard or swiping on a tablet, helping to prevent “Text Neck™“.

RANGE OF POSTURES

Gesture 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.

Until now, headrests have largely been an afterthought, but the Gesture headrest is integrated into the design. The headrest takes head size, neck length and desired range of motion into consideration to support a greater range of sizes.

RANGE OF USERS

We know that today’s workplace has to accommodate a wide range of users sizes. Most chairs are only designed to fit one person: the average.

Gesture solves for the broadest range of sizes. Whether large or small, Gesture promises personalized and custom comfort for all users in one simple solution, all while utilizing a minimal footprint.

Insights

GLOBAL POSTURE STUDY

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.

WHAT WE LEARNED

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.
