Think Chair from Steelcase


Steelcase's Think chair is designed to do just that. Its smart features anticipate your needs as a user and react to them as you change postures and sit for long periods of time, but we've known about its design excellence for a while now. In addition to a mouthful of ergonomic adjustments (three recline positions, 4-way adjustable arms and adjustments for seat height, seat depth, lumbar height, and an adjustable headrest) and, perhaps more important to TreeHuggers, are its materials; the chair itself is comprised of 99% recyclable content and is made of up to 41% recycled material. It is also Greenguard certified and helps contribute towards LEED certification. It was one of the first six Cradle to Cradle products certified by McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC), which makes sense since it was developed in partnership with MBDC, and the chair received a Gold Industrial Design Excellence Award (IDEA) in June of this year. The best part of all this is that it's available in the US directly from Steelcase for the first time; they've just opened an online store for consumers to pick out, customize and purchase both the Think chair and Leap chair (which was also certified by MBDC). Steelcase offers free shipping for the chairs, which, when it comes to ergonomic task chairs whose price won't take your breath away, are not a bad way to go . ::Steelcase Store
