Description

A design driven by Humanscale’s passion for the environment, the Liberty Side chair was created to push the boundaries of minimalism found in the Liberty task chair and be as simple and environmentally friendly as possible, without sacrificing Humanscale's philosophy of complete, automatic comfort. Niels Diffrient developed the Liberty Side to showcase the same complete-body comfort found in Humanscale task chairs, but made with lightweight, recyclable and long-lasting materials.

About Liberty Side Chair - Using Humanscale's tri-panel backrest construction, the Liberty Side chair offers body-fitting comfort and lumbar support. This contemporary, multipurpose chair uses revolutionary Form-Sensing Mesh Technology and a pivoting backrest to provide complete support during a gentle recline. Designed to complement the Liberty task chair, the Liberty Side is a beautiful and versatile chair that encourages the same balanced movement throughout the day.

Design Story - "I keep thinking, 'how much simpler can this be? and come up with the end result." - Niels Diffrient, Designer.

Created by legendary designer Niels Diffrient, the Liberty side chair complements the Liberty task chair and offers comfort, style and flexibility in a conference seat. Diffrient collaborated with textiles designer Elizabeth Whelan to make a mesh design with give, but that would still provide enough firmness for automatic lumbar support. Liberty’s mesh back is formed by combining three panels of this mesh in the same way a tailor combines multiple pieces of fabric to make a shirt. The result is a conference chair with custom-made contours to fit and support the human body in unprecedented comfort.

Features

  • Self-Adjusting Recline - The Liberty Side chair features an intelligent counter-balance recline mechanism that automatically provides the right amount of support through the full range of recline motion, regardless of user size and weight. Unlike many conference chairs, it is flexible and encourages the user to stay active, while keep them comfortable.

  • Environmental Design - Made predominantly from lightweight 100% recycled die-cast aluminum, the Liberty Side chair was created to be long-lasting and environmentally friendly. Overall, it is constructed from 85% recycled content and is 99% recyclable. The textiles for the chair’s seat were chosen especially to complement the high environmental standard. Its modular design means it can be customized and easily updated as needed.

  • Tailored Comfort - With a unique mesh back and seat, the Liberty Side chair is sturdy and supportive, ensuring complete comfort. The back tri-panel construction is breathable due to the mesh and offers customized support, while the backrest pivot offers additional comfort. The mesh seat has a frameless front edge that is supportive yet soft. The perfect chair for conferences, meeting rooms and hospitality seating, the Liberty Side chair’s ergonomic support ensure the user can sit comfortably all day long.

Liberty and the Environment

Humanscale is committed to environmental sustainability and continually strives to design, engineer and manufacture products that compared to others in the same class - consume less of the Earth's limited resources. This is accomplished by creating products that

  • Weigh less, requiring less raw materials

  • Use fewer parts and manufacturing processes

  • Contain a high percentage of recycled content

  • Contain a high percentage of recyclable content

 

Wherever possible, Humanscale uses aluminum as its material of choice. Our aluminum is 100% recycled and recyclable. It never degrades, so it can be reused over and over again. And because recyclers are paid a premium for aluminum scrap, we believe that the aluminum in our products will almost surely be recycled when the time comes. Using aluminum usually costs us more than plastics or other alternatives, but our products are better for it. And so is the environment.

The Liberty chair is a great example of Humanscale's environmental purpose.

  • Made predominantly of aluminum, followed by plastic and steel

  • Contains 54% recycled content (32% post-consumer, 22% post-industrial)

  • 93% recyclable

  • Weighs only 27 lbs.

  • Designed for easy disassembly

  • Ships in 40% recycled packaging, or blanket-wrapped when feasible

  • Greenguard Certified
