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 cumbersome recline levers and dials. 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.
Articulating Headrest Supports 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, it 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 to ensure synchronous use.
Sculpted cushions were designed to mimic the body’s natural contours and decrease pressure point loads for premium comfort.
