Platinum Award
People are more mobile today, even when seated. Buoy swivels, turns, tilts and moves up and down thanks to a curved base, just like a buoy in the water. Buoy provides five and half inches of height adjustability with the lift of a lever. The built-in handle and light weight – only 20lbs – enable users to move wherever they work best. The seat has a 5 degree tilt at rest and up to 12 degree tilt at play.


Like anything you would expect from Turnstone, Buoy was designed with Sustainability in mind. We will also meet global sustainability requirements.

Buoy starts at $199.


Buoy by Turnstone is a new way of sitting for a new generation of workers. Buoy wobbles, spins and stays mobile for active sitting. Ideal for quick touch-downs, on-the-fly conversations and on-the-run meetings, buoy bucks the trend of sedentary lifestyles and work styles. It fosters wellness by encouraging motion thanks to a curved base that encourages worker movement.


...a company dedicated to helping people work more effectively.

Whatever you need to accomplish, Steelcase can provide you with the environment and the tools to do it better, faster and more effectively. That's because we're passionate about unlocking the potential of people at work. It's the fundamental principle on which our company was founded in 1912 and it remains our single-minded focus in the 21st century.

We make it our business to study how people work, to fully understand the ever-changing needs of individuals, teams and organizations all around the world. Then we take our knowledge, couple it with products and services inspired by what we've learned about the workplace, and create solutions that help people have a better day at work.

Steelcase began in 1912 as The Metal Office Furniture Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We received our first patent in 1914 for a steel wastebasket -- a major innovation at a time when straw wastebaskets were a major office fire hazard. That led to metal desks, and we've led the way with product and service innovations ever since. Today, our portfolio of solutions address the three core elements of an office environment: interior architecture, furniture and technology. We changed our name to Steelcase in 1954 and became a publicly held company in 1998.

Steelcase was founded by people with a strong commitment to integrity and doing the right thing for their customers, employees, business partners, associates and neighbors. Their principles became the foundation of our company, passed on from decade to decade. Living our core values is essential to our identity, reputation and success today, just as it was in the past.

At Steelcase, we:
Act with integrity
Tell the truth
Keep commitments
Treat people with dignity and respect
Promote positive relationships
Protect the environment

...a company with a global reach

Although we are still headquartered in Grand Rapids, Steelcase today is an international company with approximately 16,000 employees worldwide, manufacturing facilities in over 50 locations and more than 900 dealer locations around the world.
