Leap Chair Plus
designed by Steelcase Design Studio in conjunction with IDEO
At A Glance:
This is the plus size version of Steelcase's award-winning Leap Chair. Able to support up to 500 pounds, the Leap Chair Plus is perfect for everybody in the plus size category.
The Leap Chair Plus is all about making movement comfortable - and even essential. When your spine moves the back of the chair moves with it. When you want to change the position of your arms or legs or re-adjust your position in the seat, those corresponding parts move too. You can't get away from it, but you won't want to either.
What's To Like:
- This is a great chair for a fidgeter, someone that can't help but feel restless in a standard office chair. The Leap Chair Plus not only makes those people (by which we mean practically everyone) comfortable, it encourages them to move.
- The arms move and adjust; the seat moves and adjusts; everything moves and adjusts. This chair represents a real and exciting leap forward in ergonomic and human-centered chair design.
- Leap’s LiveBack® technology emulates the movement of the spine and supports your body as you move throughout your work day.
- Most importantly, this task chair is designed to support up to 500 pounds.

Upholstery options include Buzz 2 fabric, Era fabric, and Cogent Connect fabric.
Buzz 2 is a tightly-knit polyester fabric. Extremely durable, this fabric will last the long haul. It has a raised dimple pattern and is textured with a coarser finish.
Era is a subtle, two tone polyester fabric containing stretch in both directions for ease of upholstery. The baby herringbone weave offers an understated contemporary texture while its coloring technique provides close up intrigue. The palette incorporates playful brights and sophisticated muted tones.
Cogent Connect Fun, modern colors. It has an even hole pattern and is very smooth and durable. Softer and more breathable than Buzz 2.
Buzz 2, Era and Cogent Connect are all made from 100% antimony-free polyester, and are rated at 100,000 double rubs on the Wyzenbeek Test. We suggest googling “Wyzenbeek Test” if you’re not sure what it that is, but it’s basically a machine-driven test that measures the durability of fabrics and is highly trusted as an industry standard.
The Leap Chair is informed at every juncture by ergonomic ideas and research. The edge of the seat flexes to make your thighs more comfortable, eliminating numbness and improving circulation. That, in turn, leads to increased focus and productivity. Leap also comes with the pioneering Live Back, a system in the back of the chair that takes the pressure off your spine and keeps you comfortable even in the worst posture. If you want even more support, Lower Back Firmness can be increased or decreased by using the designated knob on the side of the chair. Thermal Comfort keeps your temperature even in all climes, allowing air to pass freely (dispersing heat and moisture) while at the same time providing a barrier to cold. No more getting up and down or unnecessary sweating at work. All of these adjustments and features combine into an impressive whole.
The Leap Chair is really a kind of machine as well as a tool; it not only helps you work, it helps keep you comfortable, supported, sane and focused during long periods of sitting and working. Every part of the chair works toward making you more alert, more relaxed, better able to focus and do your job. One of the effects of sitting in one can be increased productivity (brought about by the restoration of time previously lost to getting up and down and taking breaks to stretch and move), as well as increased focus and alertness brought on by better circulation and the lessening of distractions like discomfort and unnecessary hunching.
Just as important as the customization Smart Furniture offers our customers is the range of adjustments the Leap Chair offers its users. Without a wide range of adjustments, which most office chairs lack, a chair can never truly become your own; it can never fit your body perfectly, to your exact specifications. Steelcase has taken great pains to make sure that the Leap Chair is accommodating in all respects. Leap is infinitely adjustable, so every owner becomes one of the designers and engineers as soon as the Leap chair comes into his home or office. You can adjust seat depth, the armrests, the incline and recline, firmness and give. And it's all predicated on a series of scientific experiments conducted by the makers of the Leap Chair to see how people sit, paired with the latest in ergonomic technology. The Steelcase Leap experiments observed the way people held themselves, how they leaned, how they changed positions over time. They then took all that information and put it to work in one of the smartest, most inventive chairs of the decade, the Leap Chair.
You won't sit in a chair that's better prepared, better researched, or better planned and designed just for you. Smart Furniture is proud to offer the latest in great design and great ergonomic science from Steelcase.
