Humanscale Freedom Task Chair

Posted on  by admin


The Freedom chair redefines the concept of traditional task chairs. 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 Humanscale Freedom Chair makes huge strides to support your body ideally, giving you superior range of movement while you work at the same time. Designed by the ergonomic innovator Niels Diffrient, the seat allows you to tilt, lean, and recline your way to better posture. When you sit in a chair designed by Humanscale, it is clear that your spine, neck, shoulders, arms and legs are all being taken care of, supported by impeccable designs and informed by the latest ergonomic science. The Freedom Chair is one of their very best.

Its refined and sculpted cushions were designed to mimic the body’s natural contours and decrease pressure point loads for premium comfort.

Great product!
I love this chair! I sit at a desk all day long which has resulted in back and postural issues over the years. This is the first chair I have sat in that I can actually get comfortable in. Being able to adjust my position throughout the day is really helping. It also has a very comfortable seat. I’m really pleased I opted for this chair as it is definitely worth the money!
A must have
Personally, for me, the chair would not be complete without the headrest ... I think you must order the headrest.
I researched them all this was the best!
I had a back problem and I have to be at a computer alot of the time. This chair changed my working experience overnight
So happy to have one!

Humanscale Freedom Chair With Headrest

Humanscale freedom task chair with headrest reviewAfter working for Humanscale many years ago. I was determined to get a Freedom chair when space would allow me to have an office. It was delivered very quickly and it is easy to use and so comfortable! I'm so happy making this purchase. I cannot recommend the chairs more.
Best Chair I Ever Sat In
I love this chair. It is easy to use and adjust, and it feels great!
The best chair I've used I
I was fortunate enough to 'inherit' a Freedom chair from someone who was retiring at work. Even though it was used, I liked it right away. So much, that I wanted one for myself at home. I am a writer and spend many hours a day at the computer. This is the only chair I've found really works for me. I had a horrible chair at home. This year, I was redoing my home office and decided that I'd invest in myself. The first purchase was getting the Freedom chair. I was delighted to find that the customized one I bought for myself was even better than the inherited one at work! Later I got myself a new Uplift desk, too. What a difference it makes for me to have both of these items. When I spend a whole day at work, I used to dread having time in my home office. But no longer. I still need a break from the computer, but having the Freedom chair and Uplift desk make a huge difference.
Great Chair
Chair works perfectly for my height 6.3' Tried different chairs before and this works best for my body.
The Mercedes of chairs!

Humanscale Freedom Task Chair With Headrest

I ordered this chair for my home workspace because I had developed tendonitis in both shoulders from sitting at my computer day in and day out on an ordinary dining room chair. Now, thanks to the chair (and a lot of physical therapy), my condition has improved markedly, and every time I take a seat, I feel ensconced in luxury and comfort.
Amazing chair!
Humanscale freedom chair armrest replacementI suffer from lower back pain and have worked my way through many chairs -- the kneeling chair, the exercise ball chair, a mesh super adjustable 'techy' chair. It wasn't until I bought the humanscale freedom headrest chair that I found a chair I could use all day long.
The HumanScale chairs are fantastic. Everyone in our office has a Freedom or Freedom Headrest and loves them. The HumanScale Liberty chairs in our conference room look great and are comfortable and easy to adjust.
The only chair you will ever need to buy!
As a chronic back sufferer there are good days and there are some very bad days. I have found just after 30 minutes on my Freedom chair makes my pains go away. I can't say enough about the quality and craftsmanship of the chair. Just get one and you too will be a believer.
A chair you can benefit from.
I have had my human scale Freedom Headrest since 2007. This chair has been a Godsent for me. Being disabled from an accident at work, seating had become an issue. I have had numerous chairs over the years, all of which agrvated my injuries. That is until I purchased the Freedom chair. Human Scale has stood by this chair. After owning this chair, the arms failed. I emailed Human Scale and they took down the serial number and told me it was still under warntee. I was prepared to pay for the parts. 10 years and they replaced the arms at no cost to me. That speaks volumes for their reputation. Thank you so much for making this product, and standing behind it!
Perfect Chair
This chair is perfect for our agents. It helps with back support and is very comfortable and is a must have chair for everyone!
Pure Comfort
This chair provides the greatest comfort without the pretension of meaningless extra functions. Add the outstanding customer service when replacing parts and you have an all-around enjoyable experience.
Simply the best working chair in the world
It must be ten years that I've been using this chair and not only has it supported me as I grow older, it is still in perfect condition. Indestructible and worth every penny!
