Winner of ten design awards to date—including the Design Distinction Award in the prestigious ID Design Review 2000 competition—the Freedom chair by Niels Diffrient has revolutionized the task chair industry. Its weight-sensitive recline, synchronously adjustable armrests, and dynamically positioned headrest set new standards for task chair performance and functionality to keep the sitter exceptionally comfortable while also lowering the risk of long-term injury.


  • Self-Adjusting Recline- 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/release -During recline, the angle between torso and legs opens up for better body function. The user maintains near-constant eye level during recline
  • Pivoting Backrest – Extra motion of the backrest during recline automatically adjusts to the changing needs of the spine
  • Provides up to 1” additional lumbar support when needed
  • Synchronous Armrests – Revolutionary armrests move in tandem to eliminate uneven arm positioning. Natural lift and release action for immediate repositioning without buttons or locks
  • 6” range of vertical motion to accommodate all users and tasks
  • Can be positioned below thigh level for close table or desk work
  • Attached to backrest so arms stay in the same relation to the body during recline
  • Duron arm pad for durability and comfort
  • Standard Cylinder – Provides seat height range that accommodates 95% of the population
  • Contoured Cushions – Carefully sculpted to match body contours
  • Increased contact area reduces pressure points – Modular for easy replacement
  • Body Fit – Size adjustable to fit more than 95% of the population
  • Hard Casters

    I like everything about this chair. Comfortable, adjustable and looks great. Only downside, it was considerably more expensive than others I tried but I felt it worth the cost considering how many hours i will be sitting in it.
