CEO Robert King founded the company with the aim to provide products that improve health and comfort in the workplace. Based in New York, the company started producing revolutionary keyboard systems in the 1990s, with the arrival of the Freedom Chair at the turn of the century from renowned ergonomics designer Niels Diffrient. The innovative chair was the catalyst to really launch the business as one of the market leaders in office furniture.
With locations in more than 28 countries around the world, Humanscale is one of the biggest manufacturers of office furniture. Their products have also gained numerous awards with over 200 accolades since 2007.
