The Humanscle Freedom chair redefines the concept of traditional task chairs. Designer Niels Diffrient aimed to design an office chair that automatically adapts to the user, allowing them to move freely from posture to posture. Diffrient’s unique approach removed complexities found in other chairs, such as cumbersome recline levers and back tension dials for a truly ergonomic task chair. As a result, he developed a recline mechanism that perfectly adjusts to the user, definitively reinventing modern task seating to be truly simple, functional and beautiful.
The body-friendly armrests move up and down together, staying with the user during recline for continuous comfort and support. Unlike other chair designs, Freedom's armrests are attached to the back of the chair to ensure synchronous use.
The Freedom chair features a dynamic, articulating headrest to support the head and neck as users recline. It moves with the sitter, so they can change postures without making manual adjustments and stay comfortable in any position.
Humanscale’s new chrome-free leather Corvara is better for the user and better for the environment.Our ‘alternatively tanned’ leather collection is manufactured by Wollsdorf Leather – a carbon neutral tannery – and does not utilize chromium, a harmful chemical used in most methods for tanning leathers. Instead, synthetic vegetable tanning is used to ensure our leathers are free from heavy metals, reducing the risk of causing harm to the environment during production.
Corvara is a high quality a semi aniline dyed leather that offers a smooth silky feel and ultimate durability. It is a top full grain leather that is embossed lightly for a consistent uniform grain structure.
