Simplicity For the User

Humanscale Diffrient World BackgroundSimplicity is at the core of Humanscale products. Each of our designs is incredibly easy to use with the fewest parts and controls possible. All this is achieved while offering the highest levels of performance and functionality. That commitment to simplicity led to the development of Diffrient World: a high-performance task chair that fits one or 1,000 users. From design legend Niels Diffrient, the Diffrient World chair features an unprecedented combination of performance, sustainability, and simplicity in a task seating solution.

The Diffrient World chair has just two manual settings—one each for seat height and seat depth. All other fittings and adjustments are automatic. With its weight-sensitive recline, the Diffrient World chair automatically supports every user at every recline position. And its Form-Sensing Mesh Technology provides tailor-made lumbar support without external devices or manual controls. That means we’ve replaced knobs, levers and instructions with effortless ergonomic comfort.

This specific quick ship model saves on cost and shipping time. But it is also fully customizable. Feel free to contact us here for details.

Weighing as little as 30 pounds and made of one-third the parts of traditional task chairs, the

Diffrient World chair requires far less raw material and fewer manufacturing processes – and that means less extraction, energy, waste, shipping, and disposal associated with its lifecycle.

And its modular design allows for easy in-field upgrades and part replacements, thereby extending its already long serviceable life.

Three options, what’s the difference?

The Humanscale Diffrient World chair has three different quick ship options. All three feature black frames, include adjustable Duron arms, casters, a back, and a seat to sit on. In fact, this premium product is customizable, but you can save by purchasing the quick ship models offered here. So what’s the difference? The answer is in their configurations. There are two simple differences, the seat fabric, and the back mesh. Let’s take a look.


Using only monofilament (back mesh) yarns that are thin and strong, a simple but classic stripe pattern is achieved through weave structure and yarn placement. This pattern has slight elasticity but terrific memory.

Corde 4 (seat fabric) is a four-way stretch design that moves with the sitter as they adjust positions in their chair, providing ultimate comfort. Its intricate weave structure, dimensional surface, and a wide array of neutral and vibrant shades are visually appealing and engaging to the touch.


Catena’s (back and seat mesh) dense and rich hues are inspired by the vibrant spice markets of India. When used as a backrest textile, this proprietary non-stretch mesh provides customized lumbar support through its tri-panel patented design that fits the user like a tailored shirt.


Pinstripe (back and seat mesh) was designed specifically to work with the Diffrient World Chair, this lightweight fabric provides the strength and support of a much heavier mesh by using two different monofilament stretch yarns to provide proper support.
