amia means ergonomics

Built with those a little closer to the ground in mind, the Amia can still adjust its seat pan, arms, and lumbar support height to support a wide range of builds in complete comfort on its plush patented foam cushion.

steelcase amia features

  • Sleek Design: Gentle arcs keep your space visually uncluttered and your body at its perfect position.
  • LiveLumbar Support: Spring activated back support moves with you all day, no extra adjustments required. No matter how you shift through your shift, it stays on you.
  • Tension Adjustment: Keep back support and reclining as mild or as firm as you want it to be.
  • Armrest Positioning: So long as they’re off the dinner table, you can keep your elbows wherever you want them to be with armrests that rise, pivot, expand, and contract however you need them.
  • Seat Pan Adaptability: No more cutting off your shin circulation or making your knees do the legwork your posterior was meant to. The seat sliding mechanism will keep the cushion where you need it in relation to your body from the bellybutton down.
  • Ships Assembled: The hardest part will be trying not to play in the box.

  1. The Leap and Amia seem pretty similar. Should I spend more on the Leap?

    Many customers, and THS employees, actually prefer the Amia. You get many of the same adjustments as on the Leap Chair, at a cheaper price point. Both ergonomic chairs come with Steelcase's 30-day trial period so you can enjoy hassle-free returns for the first month.

  2. How much assembly is required?

    The Steelcase Amia Chair ships fully assembled and ready for use.

  3. Does this chair come with a headrest?

    No, the Amia does not have the option to purchase a headrest.

  4. I am small framed and I struggle to find a chair that works for my build. Is the Amia a good chair for me?

    I bet it is! I have an associate that is 5 foot 1 inch and she states that she has never been very comfortable in chairs until sitting in this one!

  5. Can I order a fabric swatch before I purchase my chair?

    Certainly, just give our Sales Pros a call and they will order a fabric swatch for you. This will help take some of the worry out of ordering a chair online.

  6. Will I have to wait until I receive my chair to get my $100 UPLIFT gift certificate?

    Contact our Sales Pros and they will be able to help you apply your $100 UPLIFT gift certificate to an UPLIFT Desk if you wish to purchase both at the same time.

  1. AWESOME CHAIR! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 20th 2016

    I LOVE THIS CHAIR! I work from home and had been using a mid-level office chair from Staples. I was always reluctant to spend the money on a true ergonomic chair. I finally pulled the trigger and I am so glad that I did. You definitely get what you pay for. This Amia chair is awesome and I wish I would have bought it sooner. I am comfortable and definitely seated in a better position at my desk.
