An increase in the use of mobile devices and large monitors has created a popular new posture for workers – what Steelcase calls the “take-it-in.”
Without sufficient support, this reclined working position can put unnecessary strain on the neck and shoulders. We are pleased to introduce something new for Gesture that helps prevent strain and discomfort. Inspired by the broad range of motion in the head and neck, the Gesture headrest offers choice and control for working postures.
Until now, headrests have largely served as an additional component, but as the Gesture headrest is fully integrated into the design, it takes into consideration factors such as average head size, neck length and desired range of motion to support a multitude of postures and poses.
The many devices we deploy throughout our work day allow us to flow between tasks, fluidly, and frequently. Gesture is the first chair designed to support our interactions with today’s technology.
