So advanced it’s simple. Designed to compliment any space and integrate effortlessly into the modern office, the Freedom chair offers comfort, style and complete ease of use. Created by Niels Diffrient and winner of more than 10 design awards, the Freedom 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.

Build Quality

Build Quality

Humanscale’s ergonomic chairs are designed to look as good in ten years’ time as they do today. The textiles attach to the cushion without adhesives, which prevent wrinkling over time and is better for the environment. The arm caps feature a separate foam insert so they will not tear. The plastics have texture to prevent scratching. Humanscale goes to great lengths to ensure all the components of the chairs hold up to wear and tear. This chair was built with fewer parts to help make an impact on the environment. The Freedom chair has pioneered the use of gel in seat cushions because gel doesn’t compress, it supports the sitter’s body and maximizes comfort over many hours.

Back Comfort

The Freedom chair has a backrest that is also made to contour to your body. The cushions are sculpted to closely follow body contours, which increases contact and decreases concentrated loads. Freedom’s responsive pivoting backrest automatically adapts to the changing needs of your spine during recline. The backrest, along with the headrest, may be independently positioned to fit your exact body size by moving them up or down. With Freedom’s revolutionary counter-balance mechanism, your weight automatically balances the force required to recline the chair. Without cumbersome knobs or levers, and with no manual adjustments, Freedom makes active sitting effortless.

Seat Comfort

Feel comfortable all day on the Freedom’s contoured gel seat cushion. Contoured cushioning supports you where you need it while allowing users to individually position each part of the office chair to fit the body. These cushions increase contact area on the thighs to reduce pressure points. Adjust your depth front to back, and height up or down to find your perfect fit. It’s truly comfortable, customizable sitting, your way.




The Freedom chair was designed specifically to encourage frequent spontaneous changes of posture. There are no locks and no tension springs to negotiate. In their place are elegant mechanisms that automatically support your body in every position you’ll assume throughout the day. The backrest is responsive and adapts to the changing needs of your spine, while the headrest adjusts to cradle your head and neck as you recline. Freedom’s body-friendly gel armrests move up and down together and stay with you during recline. Adjust your gel cushioned seat’s height and depth to fit your body. With the Freedom chair you can feel what better ergonomics can do for your work style just by changing up the way you sit.


Humanscale Freedom Chair has an excellent warranty. The fabrics, arm pads and cushions have 5 years of single-shift use. All other components have 15 years of 24/7 use.




About Humanscale

About Humanscale

"My idea was that, instead of sitting down and reaching for a lot of controls, that you would sit on the chair, and it would automatically balance your weight against the force required to recline." - Niels Diffrient, Designer Eager to create a truly ergonomic chair that adjusted to the user automatically, Niels Diffrient created Freedom, which allows the sitter to change postures effortlessly. Replacing the traditional recline mechanism with a weight-sensitive one, Diffrient’s Freedom chair revolutionized the way people sit.
