Steelcase Gesture

Steelcase surveyed the habits of 2,000 people to create this chair. The result? An über-adjustable seat built to stay supportive during both standard postures (such as typing) and nine new ones based on our modern technological tendencies (such as leaning back with a tablet).

Dr. Aibinder says: "It's very stiff, with excellent overall support. And its arms are very adjustable. The controls are a bit complicated though." [From $979; steelcase.com]
