    Ergonomics for Everyone​

    Steelcase Series 1 offers an exceptional entry point into high-performance ergonomic office seating, characterized by space efficiency and weight-activated tension adjustments – customized to fit you.​

    Take Your Pick​

    Select from two ergonomic mesh chair back designs: the original Series 1 3D Microknit Back or Series 1 Air Back. ​

    The Air Back option features a specially engineered geometric wave pattern that flexes in two dimensions to encourage movement and posture changes while providing the spine with responsive support.​

    The 3D Microknit Back features a system of flexors tucked neatly inside the backrest, which mimic your spine to provide flexibility and continuous lower-back support.
