“The gold standard in office seating.” New York Times.

The Freedom Chair epitomizes Humanscale’s philosophy of simplicity, beauty and ease-of-use created by renowned designer Niels Diffrient. It revolutionizes task seating by using the laws of physics to replace bulky and complex mechanisms to automatically adapt to the body of each person who uses it.

Its unique weight sensitive recline continuously adjusts the backrest resistance to your exact body weight for a perfect custom fit. Whether you’re tall or small, the Freedom Chair supports you at any recline. It also lets you spontaneously change positions and postures throughout the day, which is vital to long-term health and safety.

Chrome-Free Ticino Leather

Luxurious, elegant and enduring, Humanscale’s chrome–free leather Ticino are better for the user and the environment. Manufactured without chromium, a harmful chemical used in most methods for tanning leathers. Instead, synthetic vegetable tanning and clear water technology are used to ensure the leathers are free from heavy metals, reducing the risk of causing harm to the environment during production and to the end user as a finished product. The result is a premium leather that exceeds industry standards in performance and durability.

As one of the first manufacturers to exclusively offer chrome–free leather for their seating line, Humanscale is committed to using materials and manufacturing processes that are safe and sustainable.

Lotus – An Antimicrobial Textile

The Freedom chair also comes with Lotus antimicrobial fabric. Lotus is easy to clean and protects against the growth of certain microorganisms, making it an ideal fabric for both home and office applications. This textile is aptly named after the plant known for its healing properties, beauty, and cleanliness. Its polyurethane finish with nylon backing boasts a soft texture that is pleasant to the touch while offering exceptional durability, and its four-way stretch design provides the flexibility to seamlessly adapt to Humanscale’s unique ergonomically designed products. Lotus meets and exceeds all performance requirements for task seating applications, including all heavy-duty contract and healthcare tests.
