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.

Features
Long Lasting ComfortEffortless ReclineIntuitive Adjustment
Freedom’s body-fitting contours ensure the user sits in comfort all day long. Our cushions are built to maximise comfort for four hours, rather than the industry standard four minutes, which is as long as a sit-test in a new chair generally lasts.Freedom’s intelligent recline mechanism automatically provides custom support for every user, and encourages healthy, spontaneous movement throughout the day.  Without cumbersome knobs or levers, and with no manual adjustments, Freedom task makes active sitting effortless.The revolutionary design of the Freedom’s backrest allows automatic pivoting to accommodate the changing needs of the spine. Its synchronous armrests stay with the user during recline, for constant support and ongoing comfort.

Designer

Niels Diffrient (1928 – 2013) Niels Diffrient's designs are grounded in the philosophy that form follows function. His work has spanned generations, consistently looking past trends to reinvent the tools we use for daily living. With an academic foundation in design and architecture and a degree from Cranbrook Academy, Diffrient channels his knowledge of engineering, architecture, and human factors into the creation of highly functional and aesthetically timeless designs. From his early work with the studios of Eero Saarinen, Marco Zanuso, and Henry Dreyfuss to his current work with Humanscale, Diffrient's visionary talent has been widely recognised. Included among his many honours are the 2002 National Design Award from the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, and the 1999 Chrysler Design Award. In recent years, Diffrient has focused his energies on designs for the office environment, particularly seating--a category in which he has pioneered numerous breakthroughs, from pneumatic cylinders for seat height adjustment to weight-activated automatic recline.
