Humanscale is recognized as one of the leading manufacturers of high quality ergonomic products including Humanscale Freedom and Liberty Chairs.
Office seating has come a long way in the last 30 years. But as chairs have become more advanced, they've also gotten more complicated.
Based on the belief that form follows function, our seating lines combine maximum comfort and functionality with simple, user-friendly design. Our chairs accommodate nearly all shapes, sizes and body types while offering the aesthetics to complement any office interior. And made to the most stringent environmental standards, each chair is a reflection of our passionate commitment to sustainability.
Every solution in our seating line is designed for the simplest, most comfortable user experience possible. When you sit in a chair, you shouldn't have to think about how to adjust it for maximum comfort. In fact, you shouldn't have to think about anything. So we design our chairs to be intuitive - to adjust to each unique user.
Superior engineering is what enables unmatched comfort and functionality to come in such an easy-to-use package. And it's also what ensures that our chairs meet the highest standards of environmental sustainability.
Knowing that a truly ergonomic chair could make more of a difference to user health than most any other product, Humanscale entered the task seating market in 1999 with the Freedom chair, which has won 10 design awards to-date - including the Design Distinction Award in the prestigious ID Design Review 2000 competition. The Freedom chair has revolutionized the task chair industry and has set new standards for task chair performance and functionality. Because of its honest design aesthetic, Freedom has also been seen in dozens of feature films and is a regular in prime-time, being featured on hit television shows such as 24, CSI Miami and Boston Legal.
The Humanscale Freedom Chair is designed to give the maximum ergonomic benefit to the sitter with a minimum number of manually-adjusted controls. Once the Humanscale Freedom Chair is fitted, no further adjustment is required.
In 2004, Humanscale launched its extremely popular Liberty chair line. With its patent-pending Form-Sensing Mesh Technology, the Liberty chair takes the benefits of mesh seating - breath ability, durability, sustainability and aesthetic appeal - to the next level, providing exceptional comfort and automatically customized lumbar support without an external lumbar device. To date, Liberty and the new Liberty Side Chair have won over 12 design awards, including Best of NeoCon Gold and ID Design Distinction Awards for each.
