Karman Chair

On May 15th, 2023, the Karman Chair officially hit the market. Karman is the latest ergonomic design by Steelcase. The premium office chair world is crowded and highly competitive. So, what sets the Karman Chair apart?


The biggest differentiator for the Karman Chair is its weight. The Karman is impossibly light. Steelcase developed a lightweight but incredibly durable frame for the chair. In fact, the Karman weighs in just under 29 lbs. By comparison, many of Karman’s competitors can exceed 70 lbs. Although lightweight, the Karman Chair is a commercial-grade ergonomic task chair. But it also makes a perfect WFH chair especially if you need to move around from time to time.


Steelcase developed a proprietary performance mesh for the seat and back of the chair. The mesh seat and back encourage airflow preventing heat build-up. If you are a fan of padded upholstered seats, don’t write the Karman off just yet. Steelcase designed the Karman Chair with a patented hybrid seat. The mesh suspension seat comes with an integrated cushion to provide maximum comfort. The mesh is available in a variety of different colors and even a selection of tri-colored meshes.
