  • The Diffrient World chair is Humanscale's first foray into all-mesh office seating.

    Well known designer Niels Diffrient wanted to create the most minimal, full-function task chair ever made.  This chair comes with an innovative tri-panel mesh backrest that provides excellent back and lumbar support and a lightweight design.

    Diffrient World is a simple, beautiful and functional product. 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 offering the ultimate user-friendly sitting experience.

    Self-Adjusting Recline Features:

    • Intelligent counter-balance recline mechanism automatically provides the right amount of support through the full range of recline motion, regardless of user size and weight
    • No tension springs to adjust
    • No recline locks to set/release
    • During recline, the angle between torso and legs opens up for better body function
    • User maintains near-constant eye level during recline
  • Width: 660 mm
    Seat Height: 371 - 495 mm
    Total Height: 905 - 1029 mm
  • Niels Diffrient

    Drawing inspiration from the three-dimensional approach tailors take when creating men’s suits, Niels Diffrient wanted to build a minimal mesh chair with a back that automatically fits the user. Every detail on Diffrient Occasional was carefully considered throughout its creation, from its stackable functionality to expertly welded joints that appear clean and smooth to the eye. The result is a simple but beautiful design that raises the standard for multipurpose seating.

    Which castors should I choose?

    Carpet castors are designed for soft flooring where there is more friction.

    Hard floor castors have a slight braking system so there is more resistance on solid flooring to avoid chairs gliding too far or too fast.

    Please select the castors for the floor surface you will mostly be using the chair on. 

    Hard floor castors can be used on carpets but the chair may not move very easily and carpet castors can be used on hard floors but the chair will be more difficult to keep still.

    Over time, some marking of the floor will happen no matter which castors you select but protective matting can be bought from many high street retailers.
