Freedom Task Chair
Designed by Niels Diffrient
Made by Humanscale
Designed to complement any space and integrate effortlessly into the modern office, the Freedom task chair offers comfort, style and complete ease of use. Created by Niels Diffrient and winner of more than 10 design awards, the Freedom task chair uses the laws of physics and the sitter’s body weight to provide instant, custom support for every sitter. This perfect balance allows the user to effortlessly move, but be fully supported in each position. As a result, users change postures often, which leads to a more healthy and comfortable sitting experience.
The Freedom task chair revolutionizes the way people sit. With its weight-sensitive recline and synchronously adjustable armrests, it set new standards for task chair performance and functionality. With a sculpted foam backrest to match the contours of the human body and thick cushions for long lasting comfort, it provides a custom ergonomic fit for every user.
The Humanscale Freedom Chair features two styles of arms that can be upholstered with a variety of padding and surface materials.
Standard armrests - can quickly be moved up or down.
Advanced arm rests - are both height and width adjustable.
Duron - is a durable polyurethane arm with a Technogel core for added comfort
Technogel - is a non-degradable, non-compressible gel layer on top of a foam core, maximizing pressure distribution for unmatched, long-term comfort
* Both arm padding materials can be upholstered to match most chairs (leather and Sensuede options are not available with Technogel pads)
Standard Foam Seat Pan - is contoured to fit your body and reduce pressure points
Gel Seat - is an upgrade to the standard foam seat pan. It consists of a gel layer on top of a foam core, maximizing pressure distribution for unmatched, long-term comfort
Standard Hard Casters - ideal for low-pile carpet and hard floors
Soft Casters - thicker casters designed to protect hard floor materials such as tile and wood from scratches
Glides - designed for fixed-location use
Locking Casters - unique casters that lock into a fixed position when the chair is occupied
Vellum Fabric - Constructed from a blend of nylon, Cordura and elastic yarn, this four-way stretch textile offers a pleasing texture, while providing the extreme durability required for long-term use.
Bizon Leather - is a durable, water-resistant leather suitable for a wide range of applications. This technically-advanced finishing process results in a leather that is not only water-resistant but also practical for applications that require a durable finish.
