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. The Freedom chair is exceptionally comfortable and promotes movement throughout the day.
Chrome-Free Leather: Our ‘alternatively tanned’ leather collection is manufactured without chromium, a harmful chemical used in most methods for tanning leathers. Instead, synthetic vegetable tanning and clear water technology are used to ensure our leathers are free from heavy metals, reducing the risk of causing harm to the environment during production and to the end user as a finished product. The result is a premium leather that exceeds industry standards in performance and durability.
Articulating Headrest: The Freedom chair features a dynamic, articulating headrest to support the head and neck as users recline. It moves with the sitter, so they can change postures without making manual adjustments and stay comfortable in any position, offers 5" vertical adjustment.
Self-Adjusting Recline: Freedom eliminates the need for traditional recline mechanisms, which can be bulky and weigh up to 15 pounds. Instead, Freedom uses the sitter’s body weight and the laws of physics to perfectly and automatically adjust recline support for each individual.
Synchronous Armrests: Freedom's body-friendly armrests move up and down together, staying with the user during recline for continuous comfort and support. Unlike other chair designs, Freedom's armrests are attached to the back of the chair to ensure synchronous used and sculpted cushions were designed to mimic the body’s natural contours and decrease pressure point loads for premium comfort.
