About

As one of the most admired seating options across the world, the Freedom with headrest is going to be a key feature for any office space looking for maximum comfort mixed with impeccable style.

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.
