Humanscale Freedom Office Chair with Headrest, Black
The Freedom chair's weight-sensitive recline, synchronously adjustable armrests, and dynamically positioned headrest set new standards for task chair performance and functionality, keeping you exceptionally comfortable while also lowering the risk of long-term injury.
A responsive, pivoting backrest automatically adapts to the changing needs of your spine during recline, while the self-adjusting back has an intelligent counterbalance recline mechanism. This automatically provides the right amount of support regardless of your body shape.
The luxurious leather cushions are sculpted to snugly fit the shape of your body, giving optimal weight distribution and comfort. Meanwhile, the armrests have a synchronous design, meaning that they move up and down together, and stay with you when you recline for constant support. The dynamic headrest adjusts to cradle your head and neck as you recline, moving automatically out of the way when you sit upright.
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.
The Freedom chair is the winner of ten design awards to date, including the Design Distinction Award in the prestigious ID Design Review 2000 competition.
