Steelcase Gesture Worlds Best Office Chair is also the best tested office chair for tall people (185 to over 210cm tall) with a significantly higher seat height of up to 541mm through the use of the high gas spring (with 395-541mm seat height). This work chair impresses in all office chair tests as the test winner in 2017, 2018 and 2019 and is named "World's Best Office Chair". The "wirecutter" test result is best reproduced by CHIP magazine: "After spending more than 600 hours together in 10 office chairs and talking to four ergonomics experts, we think the Steelcase Gesture is the best chair in the world." This is the result of extensive research and development by world market leader Steelcase. Due to the increasing use of mobile devices and large monitors, a popular new sitting position at the workplace has emerged. This is known as the "reclined posture" and without proper support can put unnecessary strain on your neck and shoulders. The Steelcase Gesture can adapt much better to this sitting position and to the different ways of working in the office than a conventional office chair.
The best thing about Gesture is that it accommodates different body weights and heights of its users. The most diverse preferences for sitting postures are also taken into account here. This chair meets all needs and can be quickly and individually adjusted to a user weight of 45-135kg and to the different leg lengths of its users. Whether light or heavy, you are always on the safe side with this excellent and adaptable swivel chair, even if you sit for more than 8 hours and are more than 200 cm tall. The seat cushion, which some users find a bit "soft", is designed, like the whole chair, for a load capacity of up to 150kg. The resulting seating impression was designed by Steelcase to be comfortable, soft and cuddly. The seat shows little lateral mobility in all height settings. In the side and rear areas, the Steelcase seat cushion was deliberately designed to be a little softer so that a wide variety of sitting and working postures are possible in the first place. The seat and back cover in the highly durable Atlantic fabric has been tested up to 110,000 abrasion cycles according to the Martindale test method. According to the Wyzenbeek method (100,000 double rubs), this upholstery fabric with a pleasant feel is approved for "Heavy Duty Upholstery For Commercial Applications" as very hard-wearing for commercial use. For transport reasons, the Gesture comes partially disassembled in the box and can be assembled in just a few simple steps (no tools required). Steelcase gives a long-term guarantee (with factory customer service), see the guarantee conditions for a detailed description.
The Gesture was developed based on the global study "Global Posture Study", in which the Steelcase researchers identified 9 different sitting positions that determine our modern everyday office life. Gesture is the first chair that specifically supports the flowing and changing movements with the latest technologies and also takes into account the operation of smartphones, tablets and notebooks. The synchronous mechanism and seat depth adjustment are included as standard. This mechanism enables a synchronized movement of the seat surface to the backrest (ratio 1:2.6) and gives the sitter the opportunity to lean back and relax in the fourth locking position of the synchronous mechanism (reclining chair effect). The mechanics can be unlocked over 4 detent positions. In the first locking position, the seat and backrest are locked in the foremost working position, with the backrest still being able to move slightly via the Core Equalizer. The backrest can be released further backwards via the second and third detent positions. In the fourth locking position, the back is freely movable and can be freely moved back up to an opening angle of 135 degrees (perfect reclining chair) and the synchro-mechanism can unfold the effect of full freedom of movement. Also standard is the automatic lumbar support known as the Core Equalizer (lumbar support as a preventive measure against a herniated lumbar disc). The Gesture is also optionally available with the additional lordosis adjustment and offers excellent lumbar support. At the super low basic price, the Gesture does not have armrests, which is rarely what is desired. We therefore recommend ordering the particularly innovative 360 4D Gesture armrests in any case; these support work with tablet computers, Android smartphones and iPhones with almost no effort at all. With these multidimensionally adjustable armrests, which, according to our own comparative tests, are the best in the world, every sitting and working position is supported in an incomparably good way. A beneficial support for the cervical spine - your neck says thank you.
This innovative swivel chair is a multiple test winner with a very good grade. In September 2016, the Gesture received the test winner award from the trade journal "Das Büro", as did Chip in 2017 and wirecutter as The Best Office Chair 2018 + 2019. A quote from Chip on May 23, 2019: "After more than 600 hours together in 10 Based on office chairs and discussions with four ergonomics experts, the Steelcase Gesture is the best chair in the world.It offers all the adjustments you'd expect from a great office chair, like height, recline, and seat depth.It's also the only chair with ball-jointed armrests that are easy to adjust - and comfortable for any type of work. In fact, we've found the Steelcase Gesture to be one of the most versatile chairs - no matter how you sit or what you do at your desk, the Gesture adapts."
This Gesture with a high gas spring, which allows a larger height adjustment range, has a seat height of 395-541mm. Optionally, with the extra high gas spring, a seat height of 410-560mm is possible and well suited for giant and tall people with a height of 190cm to more than 210cm. Due to the higher seat height, this chair has slightly more "play" which means a little more lateral movement in the seat. Note on seat height: The seat height of the chairs is measured by Steelcase at the factory according to EN1335-1. These dimensions can deviate from "self-measured" dimensions, since the height is not so easy to determine with your own measurements without a suitable measuring device. The self-measurements result in a seat height of between 560 and 590mm, depending on the weight load of the user. We can offer you this chair optionally with an extra high gas spring built in, then the height can be adjusted up to a maximum of 560mm according to Steelcase, the self-measurements in this case will result in a seat height of around 580-610mm.
The Cradle-to-Cradle-certified Gesture is manufactured by Steelcase for the European market in the modern Sarrebourg factory and optionally supplied with the headrest. This extremely adjustable headrest offers you special relief and can be adjusted in height by 15 cm, swiveled forwards and backwards by 10 cm and rotated backwards by 90 degrees. This allows the Gesture's special headrest to be adjusted very well to the length of the neck and the size of the user's head. Your cervical spine says thank you and the annoying neck pain can be reduced (preventive against herniated discs in the cervical spine). There is no other headrest in the world that offers as many adjustment options as the Gesture headrest. Steelcase Gesture Chair - Worlds Best Office Chair For Tall People.

Super toller Stuhl, sehr guter Service und schnelle Lieferung
solide Verarbeitung, hohe Qualität__Preis / Leistung = TOP
ich bin sehr zufrieden mit dem Gestur. Preis-Leistung stimmt! Als Tipp: ich habe bei einer Körpergröße von 190 cm und habe deshalb die "extrahohe Gasfeder" bestellt. Jedoch war der Stuhl für mich deutlich zu hoch und die "normale Gasfederlänge" wäre gut ausreichend gewesen. Ich denke die normale Gasfeder ist ergonomisch passend bis zu einer Körpergröße von ca. 195 cm. Man hat mir aber sofort und kompetent geholfen und das Problem schnell und einfach gelöst. Jetzt ist alles TOP! vielen Dank - tolles Team!
Wenn ich in einem Jahr immer noch so begeistert bin, dann habe ich ALLES richtig gemacht
Qualität und Verarbeitung sind Top, Danke dass Sie den Stuhl schon komplett montiert geliefert haben, Laufruhe der Rollen beim Fahren ist hervorragend. Der Preis ist absolut gerechtfertigt.
Ich habe mit der Bestellung alles richtig gemacht. Obwohl online bestellt
Mit der Qualität und der Verarbeitung bin ich sehr zufrieden. Leider hatte ich am Drehkranz einen Schaden der aber diese Woche behoben werden soll.
Der Preis war schon sehr hoch aber ich glaube dies ist der Stuhl auch Wert.
gute qualität, sehr zufrieden
Der Stuhl ist sehr stabil und für Menschen über 1,90 m sehr gut geeignet. Besonders gefällt die Kopfstütze. Ärgerlich ist, dass man die Armauflagen nicht arretieren kann. Eine falsche Bewegung und die Armauflage dreht sich zur Seite. Auch hätte ich mir mehr Tiefe bei der Sitzfläche gewünscht. Große Menschen haben ja nicht nur einen langen Rücken, sondern mitunter auch längere Beine.
Ein wirklich guter und praktischer Bürostuhl.
Der Stuhl entspricht meinen Erwartungen. Gute Verstellmöglichkeiten für unterschiedliche Arbeitspositionen. Leider waren die Rollen sehr stark eingeölt, so dass es Flecken auf dem Parkettboden gegeben hat.
Rundherum sehr gut !
