Humanscale Freedom Height-Adjustable Drafting Chair with Footring

The Freedom chair is designed to give the maximum ergonomic benefit to the sitter with a minimum number of manually-adjusted controls. Once the chair is fitted, no further adjustment is required. The idea is that movement, which is essential for a healthy body, shouldn't be constricted by locking mechanisms and manual controls. In other words, sitting comfortably isn't something you should have to think about.

Features:

  • Intelligent counter-balance recline mechanism automatically provides the right amount of support through the full range of recline motion, regardless of user size and weight
  • No tension springs to adjust
  • No recline locks to set or release
  • During recline, the angle between torso and legs opens up for better body function
  • User maintains near constant eye level during recline
  • Revolutionary armrests move in tandem to eliminate the dangers of uneven arm positioning
  • Natural lift and release action for immediate repositioning without buttons or locks
  • Can be positioned below thigh-level for close table or desk work
  • Attached to backrest so arms stay in same relation to body during recline
  • Technogel armpad for superb comfort
  • Extra motion of the backrest during recline automatically adjusts to the changing needs of the spine
  • Carefully sculpted to match body contours
  • Increased contact area reduces pressure points
  • Modular for easy replacement
  • Optional non-rolling glides for fixed location use
  • High range cylinder (footring required) for use as high chair
  • Fire proof barrier between textile and foam
  • Fire retardant plastics
  • Height adjustable
  • Cal 133 approved

About the Manufacturer

Founded in 1982, Humanscale is recognized as the leading manufacturer of ergonomic products for the office. Their diverse product range helps ensure that individuals who spend hours each day in front of a computer, do so in maximum comfort and with minimal long-term health risks. To achieve this result, their philosophy regarding product design is this: Technology can make simple things complicated or complicated things simple. They believe in the latter approach and strive to design products that combine uncompromising function and honest aesthetics with ultimate ease-of-use.

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.

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 – breathability, 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.

Most recently, Humanscale’s 13-member in-house design team, led by Design Director Manuel Saez, has continued Humanscale’s history of innovation, by designing such award-winning products as the M7 monitor arm, L2 notebook manager and FM500 foot rest. Housed in a new facility in the heart of Manhattan, the Design Studio features a team-oriented workstation design that encourages idea sharing and communication among all team members. It also boasts a state-of-the-art machine shop / prototyping lab that facilitates the speed and efficiency by which concepts can be realized into 3-dimensional and functional prototypes. The Design Studio works very closely with Humanscale’s in-house ergonomists to ensure that all designs are based on the latest human factors research and knowledge.

Humanscale has always been committed to environmental sustainability and continually strives to design, engineer and manufacture products that consume less of the Earth’s limited resources. This is accomplished by creating products that weigh less (i.e. require less material), have fewer parts (which requires fewer manufacturing processes) and contain a high percentage of recycled and recyclable content. Additionally, wherever possible, Humanscale utilizes aluminum as its material of choice. Their aluminum is 100% recycled and recyclable which never degrades, enabling it to be reused over and over again. Using aluminum usually costs them more than plastics, but their products are better for it. And so is the environment.
