Freedom Task Chair

Humanscale Freedom Task ChairDesigned 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.
