With intelligent support mechanisms, the Humanscale Freedom is a revolutionary design for simplicity of use in a modern ergonomic office chair. Unlike most ergonomic chairs, the Freedom has a distinct lack of endless adjustment options. With just four basic adjustments – seat height, seat depth, back height and armrest height are all that’s needed to set up your chair to intuitively support your natural body movements. Described by The New York Times as "the gold standard in office seating," and the winner of 10 design awards along with over 1 million users, it is one of the best ergonomic chairs in the world.
