Gesture Aims to Be the Best Chair for 21st Century Posture


We hear that sitting is the new smoking. That is a problem, because many of us sit a lot. Which of course means we slouch, hunch, lean and generally have awful posture. Chairs however have always been designed with the idea in mind that the users will be sitting, with good posture, at a desk for no more than a few hours. Today that is not necessarily the case. You might prop your feet up and rest your laptop on your legs, or lean in on your elbows to look down at a tablet. Maybe you have adopted the “computer pose,” with your shoulders hunched inward and forward towards your monitors.

Designed by a team of scientists who started from scratch, the Gesture Chair was created with all sorts of postures in mind. In fact, manufacturer Steelcase conducted a study observing over 2,000 individuals and their behaviors in order to create a chair that would support the habits of a 21st century person.

Is there really a winner in this race? Not likely, as it’s far too easy to fall in love with both.

Our Favorite Grammy Moments: From Sam Smith's Four Wins to Prince's Epic Side-Eye

This year's Grammy Awards were three-and-a-half-hours of somber moments that threatened to bog the entire evening down. Thankfully, there were some pretty great highlights that broke through the gloom—aside from the red carpet style. Legends were brought to the stage in big ways (Paul McCartney performed with Kanye West and Rihanna, and Annie Lennox joined Hozier for a two-punch performance) and Sam Smith made everyone smile with his joyful acceptance speeches. Beck surprised everyone (especially Kanye) with his Best Album win and Sia sung Chandelier with a dancing Kristen Wiig. And then there was Prince.
