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.
With COVID-19 in full swing, many of us have been forced to work our jobs from home. Of course, this comes with a number of benefits: no lengthy commute, having our own space to work, and being able to do our job in our PJs, just to name a few.
However, there are a few challenges that come with working from home as well.

With the average office worker spending between 6 - 8 hours a day (around 2,000 hours every year!) sat in a chair, surely you deserve to be sat in the gold standard in office seating? The New York Times reviewed The Humanscale Freedom Chair as exactly that; the gold standard in office seating!
Humanscale Freedom Chair, "The gold standard in office seating" - The New York Times
HUMANSCALE FREEDOM OFFICE CHAIR WITH HEADREST
With innovative recline that provides constant support and a pivoting backrest that automatically adjusts to the needs of the spine, the Humanscale 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.
A true design icon, the Freedom chair proves that ergonomics can be beautiful. Created by Niels Diffrient, Freedom automatically adjusts to every user. Designed to eliminate the need for manual controls, it features a sophisticated weight-sensitive, self-locking recline mechanism. And its unique form has a timeless aesthetic that complements any workspace.

Articulating Headrest 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.
Self Adjusting Recline Freedom eliminates the need for traditional recline mechanisms, which can be bulky and weigh up to 15 pounds. Instead, Freedom uses the sitter’s body weight and the laws of physics to perfectly and automatically adjust recline support for each individual.
Synchronous Armrests Freedom's 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.
