Headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Steelcase has been making office furniture since 1912. Their Think Chair is designed to maximize comfort and ergonomics, and it has received several prestigous design awards since its introduction in 2006.
The Think Chair was also the first product to receive a Cradle to Cradle™ Product Certification from McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC). The certification evaluates a product for human and environmental health impacts throughout its lifecycle and its potential for being truly recycled or safely composted. The chair is 98% recyclable (it takes about five minutes to dissemble for recycling using common hand tools), and it’s also made with recycled materials — Steelcase says the amount is “up to 37%”.
In terms of warranty, Steelcase offers a lifetime warranty on most of the chair’s parts, ten years for the seating mechanisms, and three years for fabric.
