HUMANSCALE DIFFRIENT MESH OFFICE CHAIR

Diffrient World is Humanscale's first foray into all-mesh task seating. Designer Niels Diffrient wanted to create the most minimal, full-function task chair ever made. With an innovative tri-panel mesh backrest that provides custom back and lumbar support and a lightweight design, Diffrient World is, like all of Humanscale’s products, simple, beautiful and functional. The design eliminates the need for traditional mechanisms, instead using the laws of physics and the sitter’s body weight to offer perfect recline for each individual sitter. Diffrient World offers the ultimate user-friendly sitting experience.

HUMANSCALE DIFFRIENT MESH OFFICE CHAIR

Niels Diffrient designed Diffrient World to offer ease of use and effortless functionality. With weight-sensitive recline that adjusts automatically and armrests that are attached to the back of the chair so they move with the user for ergonomic comfort, Diffrient World provides custom comfort for every sitter. A high quality, affordable task chair with minimal parts, Diffrient World was built with longevity in mind and will look as good in ten years as it does today.

In stark contrast to other chairs, which require many adjustments, Diffrient World achieves the pinnacle of simplicity of function. Users can take full advantage of its ergonomic benefits the moment they sit down, without even thinking about it.

So instead of managing chair training for today’s and tomorrow’s employees, organizations can focus on managing their business.

And with just eight major parts, Diffrient World is built to last. Requiring minimal maintenance, Diffrient World comes with a 15-year 24/7 warranty. In other words, the chair’s simplicity reduces the need for ongoing maintenance and repairs, making it even easier for an organization to own.

Humanscale Diffrient Chair - Features

Invisible Recline Mechanism Diffrient World uses the laws of physics and harnesses the user’s body weight to automatically provide the right amount of recline for every individual, every time. Its groundbreaking mechanism-free recline action leverages two parts of the chair’s frame to provide automatic, balanced support throughout the full range of motion for maximum support.
Responsive Bracket Diffrient developed the chair’s back using the laws of physics, which eliminates the requirement for a separate lumbar support, which tends to create a pressure point and requires manual adjustment. With patented Form Sensing Mesh Technology, the backrest perfectly conforms to the sitter’s entire back as if custom made for them.
Sitting on Air A truly lightweight chair, Diffrient World replaces the standard cushion seat with a low-abrasion, non-stretch mesh. To maximize comfort, Diffrient eliminated the front edge of the chair, solving a perennial problem of hard edges placing pressure on the knees and contact stress behind the thighs, allowing long-term comfort and total supports for every sitter.

Humanscale's ergonomic chairs are designed to look as good in ten years' time as they do today.

  • Our textiles exceed 150,000 double rubs in the Wyzenbeek Test, which is five times the industry standard.
  • Our textiles attach to the cushion without adhesives, which prevents wrinkling over time and is better for the environment.
  • Our arm caps feature a separate foam insert, so they will not tear.
  • Our plastics have a texture that prevent scratching.
  • None of our chair surfaces are painted or treated, so there’s no chipping or scratching.
  • We go to great lengths to ensure all the components of our chairs hold up to wear and tear, while maintaining a minimal visual aesthetic.
  • We use fewer parts in our ergonomic chairs to reduce the impact on the environment.

The Humanscale Difference

We develop our chairs without knobs and levers, so they’re incredibly easy to use. All of our chairs allow the user to change postures effortlessly without operating any manual controls. Designing ergonomic chairs that are easy to use ensures that they are used in a correct, healthy way.
Most office chairs feature arms that are attached to the seat, which do not provide support when the user reclines or moves from posture to posture. Humanscale designs all of its desk chairs with the arms attached to the back, so when the sitter moves, the arms are in a healthy, ergonomic position every time.
A soft seat cushion is often comfortable for a short period of time but uncomfortable when the user sits on it for many hours. Humanscale’s seat cushions are engineered to be denser than our competitors’ to offer all day comfort. We also pioneered the use of gel in seat cushions. Because gel doesn’t compress, it supports the sitter’s body and maximizes comfort over many hours.
Humanscale ergonomic desk and office chairs are perfectly adjusted for every user, as if the chair was custom made for you. In lieu of traditional tension mechanisms, which can weigh as much as 15 pounds and be made of up to 40 parts, our task chairs use the laws of physics and the sitter’s own body weight. As a result, the chair automatically reads the weight of the user, allowing for the mechanism to provide perfect recline with the correct tension for every individual.
