Steelcase® Think® Chair
The Steelcase Think chair is designed to create a “comfort pocket” in the seat that will correspond to the weight, pressure and posture of the owner. Because the chair intuitively controls the angles at which you can lean back (according to your body weight), you don't have to constantly "think" about adjusting the chair — it does it for you!
Available with a fully upholstered seat and back in any of the thousands of Steelcase and Designtex fabrics, leathers and vinyls. Custom materials are also an option. Two finish colors are available: black and platinum. Optional polished aluminum base. Optional adjustable headrest, which can be added or removed at any time. Optional adjustable lumbar, which can be added or removed at any time. Armless, Fixed arms or Adjustable arms options.
Your Profile™ Seat and Back
Back flexors are individually shaped to the human form to provide optimum support for each area of the back. Seat flexors conform to your shape, providing a dynamic comfort pocket.
Your Power™ Mechanism
The mechanism moves as fluidly as the human body does. It provides recline support in proportion to your own body weight, while keeping you oriented to your work.
Adjustable Arms (Optional)
Adjustable Arms retract up to 3 in. upon contact with your work surface, allowing you to get closer to your work. They also pivot and move up and down to provide natural support.
Flexible Seat Edge
When you recline or lean forward, the seat edge flexes to relieve pressure on the back of the legs.
Your Preference™ Control
This control combines four comfort settings into one simple dial. Select your favorite setting: weight activated, weight activated with at 20% boost, mid-stop recline, and upright back lock.
Adjustable Lumbar support (Optional)
The lumber pad can be adjusted to provide customized support for the lower back.
The Think chair comes with Limited 10-year manufacturer's warranty.
The Think chair is the first-ever certified level™ 3 product, the highest BIFMA e3 standard. The Think chair is also the first product to ever receive Cradle to Cradle™ Product Certification from McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry's (MBDC).

“Design isn't just about style. It's about integrity of materials, functional integrity and intent.”
— Glen Oliver Löw, designer of the Think chair
At the turn of the 20th century, steel construction was making building exteriors less flammable, but office interiors were still crowded with wooden furniture, and still heated and lighted by open flame appliances. Smoking presented another fire hazard because ashes were often dumped in wicker wastepaper baskets. Beginning in 1912 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, The Metal Office Furniture Company (renamed Steelcase in 1954) had just 15 employees and a single product — a fireproof, metal wastepaper basket named the Victor!
Co-founder Peter M. Wege, a designer who had received several patents for sheet metal structures, was well aware of the fireproof benefits of metal office products. Wege and Chris Stone designed a metal office desk which won a bid for a federal contract, and thus the company began manufacturing office desks.
During the 1930s, Metal Office collaborated with world-famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright to produce furniture for the S.C. Johnson & Sons in Racine building, which Life magazine called “the most inspirational office building of the 20th century.”
During World War II, the company designed steel shipboard furniture for the U.S. Navy. A piece of Steelcase naval furniture was used for the historic signing of the surrender documents ending World War II.
Beginning in 1975, Steelcase launched a series of advanced office chairs, including the Sensor chair that adapted to the body's movements; the Leap® chair (1999), which addressed the correlation between back pain and worker productivity; and the Think™ chair (2004), an intuitive, mid-priced and environmentally sustainable product. Still newer ergonomic task chairs include Amia® and Cobi®, both offering the comfort and support of higher-priced chairs. Today, Steelcase, Inc. supplies thousands of products worldwide, including metal and wood office furniture, systems furniture, seating, computer support furniture, desks, tables, credenzas, filing cabinets, and office lighting.
