Think

Design Resources

Think is the chair with a brain and a conscience. It’s intelligent enough to understand how you sit and adjust itself intuitively. It’s thoughtful enough to measure and minimise its impact on the environment.

For People Who Sit

Made for People who sit for a Living

Think is the simplest, most streamlined embodiment of our understanding of people who sit – and how they sit throughout the day.

Our learnings are based on research and collaboration with universities, including the Technical University of Denmark, Michigan State University and the University of Vermont Back Research Centre. To scientific studies, we add years of observational research in the workplace – with people who actually sit for a living.

Movement Toward Wellness

Today, we’re seeing a shift from traditional ergonomics to a more proactive solution that encourages healthy living… one that focuses on the physical, cognitive, and social needs of today’s workforce and understands how they’re related.

For example, movement throughout the day helps increase blood flow to the brain and body, keeping you refreshed and energised.

But what good is movement if it takes you away from your work? You also need to stay oriented to your work as you change postures.

Movement

People need different amounts and kinds of support for each region of the back; support that can change shape to follow the motion of the back.

Pressure map testing helped us design the back flexors to provide dynamic, continuous support for each region of your back, with no pressure points or unsupported zones. Support is evenly distributed as you move in the chair. It’s natural, fluid support that mimics your spine.

Orientation

People need to change their posture frequently to stay healthy and comfortable, and will do so if their chair allows them to recline, yet stay close to their work while reclining.

The Think chair’s weight-activated mechanism allows you to recline without leaving your ideal vision and reach zone.So you can lean back and be comfortable, and still reach your keyboard and desk.

Fit

People want uncomplicated adjustments.

  • The Think chair’s weight-activated mechanism recognises your weight and adjusts itself accordingly
  • The comfort dial allows you to select one of four positions to adjust the amount of back tension and recline
  • Height, width, pivot and depth adjustable armrests provide personalised support for your arms
  • The adjustable seat depth allows individuals to achieve long-term comfort

Sustainability

Designing for Sustainability

We believe the only way to provide the best office furniture solutions is to ensure they’re the best products for the environment. That’s why every step of the way – through design, manufacturing, delivery and product lifecycle  -we consider the impact of our work on people and on the environment and uncover opportunities to make things better.

Life Cycle

Materials

Up to 95% recyclable made with up to 28% recycled content

End of Use

Disassembly for recycling takes about five minutes using common hand tools (hammer, screwdriver, etc.)

The newly redesigned Think has fewer parts for easy recycling and even quicker disassembly. Steelcase can help you reuse or recycle the chair at the end of its useful life.

A complete Life Cycle Assessment has been completed for Think, evaluating the chair’s lifelong impact on the environment – from materials used through production, shipping, use and end of life. The results of the Life Cycle Assessment are reported in the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD).

Think has measured and minimised its lifelong impact on both human and environmental health.
