The Humanscale Liberty Office Chair

The Liberty Chair, produced by Humanscale, is beautiful, comfortable and wonderfully-designed. The back, seat, and armrests are gracefully connected to two curved rods. These go from the bottom of the chair up to the back, to finally split in two ways to form the armrests.

Humanscale believes that without 3 interdependent meshes, you won’t get the right flexibility or back support. Unlike many chairs that feature a single sheet of mesh, the Liberty Chair holds true to this belief.

Comfortable Design

The Liberty Office Chair features a slight, thin back and seat. The back is porous and see-through, built with a mesh that splits into three parts. This way, the mesh backing supports your back in every support way.

The back seat reclines with a counter-weight system to allow you to remain comfortable. You will be able to keep the same eye level whether you’re sitting up or reclining while you work.

The seat features an unusual thin foam core, wrapped in upholstered techno-gel. Techno-gel allows the seat to adapt to the user’s body while remaining comfortable.

The Humanscale Liberty Chair keeps it simple with adjustments and features. Height-adjustable armrests can adjust according to your needs. What might seem a failure in design, it’s actually part of the original design. Humanscale decided to drop the need for countless adjustments. This decision certainly improves the look of the chair.
