Office Chair Designed For Mobile Device Use
Steelcase has studied how the body interacts with our various tech and has created seating that supports these postures.
Steelcase has introduced a chair designed to support people's interactions with modern technologies. Inspired by the movement of the human body, ‘Gesture‘ was created for the way we work today. It is similar in theory to the ‘Curious Rituals‘ project that categorized new gestures we've adopted to control digital devices.
The company undertook a global posture study in 11 countries, observing 2,000 people, and uncovered nine new postures. These include the ‘cocoon' where the user curls up with a piece of technology, and the ‘strunch' where they lean over a desk to look closely at a computer.
