Freedom

Described by The New York Times as “the gold standard in office seating,” 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.

Features

  • Innovative weight-sensitive, self-locking recline mechanism cleverly uses each sitter’s body weight to perfectly adjust the tension and recline position of the chair for full support throughout movement

  • Pivoting backrest automatically moves with the user throughout the day and offers perfect lumbar comfort in all positions

  • Synchronous arms allow effortless adjustment with one hand and our unique arm design attaches to the backrest to move with the user

  • Contoured cushions are sculpted to closely follow the body’s shape and offer long-term comfort, reduce pressure points and provide exceptional weight distribution

  • The Freedom Headrest features a dynamic support that cradles the head and neck during recline, but remains neutral when in upright positions
