Described by The New York Times as “the gold standard in office seating,” the 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.

  • Revolutionary counter-balance mechanism provides perfect
    recline resistance for all users–automatically
  • Synchronous armrests move up and down together and stay
    with you during recline for supported balance
  • Independently adjustable seat, backrest and optional headrest
    fit virtually any body size
  • Dynamic headrest cradles head and neck during recline and
    moves out of the way in upright positions
  • Standard Duron Arms
  • Powder-coated Aluminum frame, Graphite
  • Oxygen Tranquil, Dark grey upholstery
  • Standart Foam Seat Pan
  • Standard cylinder 125mm (5”)
  • Standard Hard Casters
  • Die-cast aluminum Matching Base

Simplicity of use combined with Functional design

exceptionally comfortable

With innovative recline that provides constant support and a
pivoting backrest that automatically adjusts to the needs of the spine, the Freedom chair is exceptionally comfortable and
promotes movement throughout the day. Its refined and sculpted cushions were designed to mimic the body’s natural contours and decrease pressure point loads for premium comfort. Like all Humanscale chairs, the Freedom chair was designed to look and function like new after years of consistent use.

Winner of 10 international design awards for its many
revolutionary features and unparalleled ease of use, Freedom’s groundbreaking design is the gold standard by which other chairs are judged.

A true design icon

Design Story

Inspired to create a revolutionary office chair that adjusted
automatically to whoever sat in it, Niels Diffrient designed the Freedom chair. Diffrient had always had a passion for aviation,
growing up drawing and building model planes. In his 2002 TED talk, in which he shared the processes behind the design of Freedom, he explained how the disciplines connected.
