Leap WorkLounge

3.8/5 stars
(based on 10 reviews)

Standard features. Custom fit.

You won’t find small, medium and large here. The Leap chair adjusts to fit your body, so you don’t have to adjust your body to fit the chair.

Thanks to LiveBack technology, the Leap chair back flexes to change shape as your back changes shape, providing stable support and encouraging unrestricted movement. And with its simple and intuitive adjustments — like separate controls for Lower Back Firmness and Upper Back Force —it’s easy to adjust your Leap chair to fit you comfortably for the entire day.

  • Headrest

    A large headrest provides neck and head support. Use the attached pillow or flip it up over the top.
  • LiveBack®

    The Leap WorkLounge's back changes shape to match the movement of your spine, to provide support and reduce lower back sag and hunched postures.
  • Polished Aluminum Base,
    Arm Supports and Back

    Simple and elegant.
  • Upper Back Force

    Set the amount of "push back" that you want as you recline.
  • Variable Back Stop

    Five positions. Set the recline angle to the one that supports you best.
  • Fixed Arms

  • Removable Lumbar Pillow

  • Natural Glide System™

    As you recline, the seat glides forward. You stay within your vision and reach zone and remain properly oriented to your work. This encourages more varied postures, which means less static load on the spine.

Every stage of the Leap chair’s life has been considered.

  • We worked with McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC), selecting only materials that assessed safe for human and environmental health.
  • Leap is up 98% recyclable by weight, depending on the options selected, and made of up to 30% recycled content.
  • The Leap chair contains no PVCs, CFCs, solvents, chrome, benzene, lead or mercury.
  • Leap has undergone a complete Lifecycle Assessment, evaluating the chair’s lifelong impact on the environment — from materials extraction through production, shipping, use, and end of life.
  • Through steps we've taken to evaluate and improve the Leap chair's environmental performance, Leap has received Silver Cradle to Cradle™ Product Certification from MBDC and also has Indoor Advantage™ certification from Scientific Certification Systems as being a low emitting product.
  • The Leap chair is designed for a long life. To ensure that happens, back cushions, seat assembly, arms, and lumbar support can be added, changed, or replaced at any time.
