Described by The New York Times as "the gold standard in office seating," the Humanscale 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
Self-Adjusting Recline Features:
Freedom eliminates the need for traditional recline mechanisms, which can be bulky and weigh up to 6.8kg (15 lbs.). Instead, Freedom uses the sitter’s body weight and the laws of physics to perfectly and automatically adjust recline support for each individual.
Freedom's body-friendly armrests move up and down together, staying with the user during recline for continuous comfort and support. Unlike other chair designs, Freedom's armrests are attached to the back of the chair to ensure synchronous use.
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.

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.
