Freedom Task Chair Designed by Niels Diffrient
Designed to complement any space and integrate effortlessly into the modern office, the Freedom task chair offers comfort, style and complete ease of use. Created by Niels Diffrient and 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 revolutionizes the way people sit. With its weight-sensitive recline and synchronously adjustable armrests, it set new standards for task chair performance and functionality. With a sculpted foam backrest to match the contours of the human body and thick cushions for long lasting comfort, it provides a custom ergonomic fit for every user.
Long Lasting Comfort
Freedom’s body-fitting contours ensure the user sits in comfort all day long. Our cushions are built to maximize comfort for four hours, rather than the industry standard four minutes, which is as long as a sit-test in a new chair generally lasts.
Freedom’s intelligent recline mechanism automatically provides custom support for every user, and encourages healthy, spontaneous movement throughout the day. Without cumbersome knobs or levers, and with no manual adjustments, Freedom task makes active sitting effortless.
The revolutionary design of the Freedom’s backrest allows automatic pivoting to accommodate the changing needs of the spine. Its synchronous armrests stay with the user during recline, for constant support and ongoing comfort.
"My idea was that, instead of sitting down and reaching for a lot of controls, that you would sit on the chair, and it would automatically balance your weight against the force required to recline."
Niels Diffrient, Designer
Eager to create a truly ergonomic task chair that adjusted to the user automatically, Niels Diffrient created Freedom, which allows the sitter to change postures effortlessly. Replacing the traditional recline mechanism with a weight-sensitive one, Diffrient’s Freedom task chair revolutionized the way people sit.
