STEELCASE GESTURE | $979
During a “global posture study” of 5,000 workers, Steelcase found that traditional keyboarding is virtually extinct: we’re all leaning back and texting, sitting sideways or curled up with our tablets. As such, the Gesture’s arms move a full 360 degrees to accommodate a range of seating positions.
It’s slim and streamlined to manoeuvre in a cubicle, but soft enough to sit in for hours.
The locking armrests are complicated, with a tendency to abruptly slide out of place if not properly latched.
