Acuity Chair from UCI

The Acuity task chair is a breakthrough in seating design and comfort.

Acuity Chair from UCI


March 1st, 2012

Designed by Allsteel in collaboration with Bruce Fifield of Design Continuum Italia, Acuity presents an all new sitting experience.


A conforming mesh back and carrier combination adapts by flexing to the user’s shape, gently embracing the body throughout an entire range of motion. The shoulders and lumbar area are supported simultaneously for comfort and ergonomics.

Unlike other chairs that use multiple levers and knobs or force the sitter to reach under and around to make adjustments, Acuity’s controls are conveniently positioned and bundled together for ease of use.

Four different mesh carrier and mesh colour combinations are available, as well a variety of seat upholstery options – including an optional leather jacket. The chassis and base are available in polished aluminium, graphite and silver; the base is also available in black.



Stylish and functional, Acuity’s design also demonstrates commitment to sustainability. More than 90 per cent of the chair’s materials can be recycled, and 46 per cent of its original materials contain recycled content.

Acuity is backed by a Allsteel’s Lifetime Warranty.
