Freedom Task Chair by Humanscale

Designed by Niels Diffrient

The Freedom Task Chair is designed to complement any space and integrate effortlessly into the modern office. The task chair offers comfort, style and complete ease of use.

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 will change the way you think about office chairs. Enjoy a foam backrest that moulds itself to your body, paired comfortably with thick cushions for increased support. Every sitter will have a unique ergonomic mould as the chair shapes itself to the sitter.
