One of the biggest rip off chairs on the market

I had about 4 of these these chairs replaced! The back rest is like warped or something and veers off to the right side when your recline, all 4 of them had the same issues and the arm rests all felt different! I don’t know what they’re doing this chair but it’s a joke and waste of money. Not to mention, the seat base is extremely firm!

Almost perfect ergonomic chair

Very comfortable and the adjustments are great. The only 2 things I would like to see is:

1. being able to lock the armrest so I’m not constantly accidentally popping it forward when I drag it towards me.

2. height adjustable backrest. I’m short and I have to use a footrest because otherwise when the seat is adjusted for my height the backrest would be set too high for the ergonomic function of this chair to work properly. Show details

Agree with previous post very overrated

Purchased this chair a fortnight ago and sat in it for 5 days trying desperately to like it. Being just over 6 feet and around 100kg the chair did not suit me at all due to the lack of comfort. The almost non-existent padding on the seat pan and back made it hurt both my lower back and buttocks so much so I gave it away after 5 days (even after removing the adjustable lumbar) Anyone thinking of buying this chair must try first preferably on a 30 day trial (not possible in Australia) if not at least see it in a shop and have a test sit for a bit.

My wife is now trying to use it but she is also having trouble with the aggressive lumbar and lack of comfort. Being older perhaps the chair is better suited to younger folks.  Show details

Very pleased

A very pleasant experience dealing with ARKI Environments.
Great product (Leap V2 office chair) and the team were helpful and entirely professional assisting me over the phone and by email before, during and after the sale. Expensive but much cheaper than a HM Aeron and great value for a product of this quality. Would absolutely purchase from them again. Show details

Lockdown relief

We are lucky at Telstra to have access to providers of different services and in tough times where we are locked down away from school/office/leisure environments, we all wanted to find a way to be comfortable in an uncomfortable situation. Well the team at ARKI came through and provided access to these office chairs which are comfortable and supportive. Kirsty from the team was ultra professional is ensuring potential COVID delivery delays were well managed. Show details

Cushion is too soft and bottoms out

I purchased the Steelcase leap v2 from Arki environments and the cushion was different to the one in the show room at Steelcase it’s much softer and bottomed out causing tailbone pain.
I have notified them but they did not seem it care about it.

There’s no return policy from this store. Show details

Steelcase Leap V2 Task Chair is the best seating experience I've ever had....HANDS DOWN!

I ordered the Steelcase Leap V2 Task chair from ARKI Environments after a lot of research online.
Excellent service and product. Well worth the investment. Lifetime purchase! BEST IN CLASS

A real competitor to Herman Miller

This chair is one of the best money can buy. It feels extremely well constructed, the padding is very comfortable, suitable for 8+ hours of use per day, highly adjustable, yet offers true support and comfort in every configuration. Show details

Questions & Answers

Is there any bigger people that have tried out the standard steelcase leap v2 ? I'm 5'8 120kg, just wondering if it's an option for somebody my size, or maybe the gesture ? The price quoted on the plus was 3.5 grand; so i'm not too keen on that idea.


I'm around 72kg and the stand chair barely has enough padding for me. has affiliate partnerships. These do not influence our content moderation policies in any way, though may earn commissions for products/services purchased via affiliate links.
