Humanscale is the premier designer and manufacturer of ergonomic products that improve health and comfort at work. Their award-winning office solutions – including self adjusting seating, sit/stand desks, monitor arms and task lighting – inspire movement and support the user in their every posture.
Humanscale's Design Studio, based in New York City, abides by the philosophy that good design achieves more with less. They regularly partner with esteemed industrial designers and are known for their history of collaboration with the iconic designer Niels Diffrient. Various Humanscale innovations have been honored with more than 200 prestigious awards since 2007 and featured in various museums, such as the Museum of Modern Art.
Sustainability of both design and materials is at the heart of what Humanscale does, solving functional problems as simply and elegantly as possible while consuming less of the Earth’s limited resources.
The Diffrient Smart chair is an intelligent mesh task chair with a striking linear aesthetic that complements any environment. Engineered to provide automatic lumbar support, simplicity and ease of use – it ensures comfort, style and flexibility. Created by designer Niels Diffrient and, like Humanscale’s Liberty and Diffrient World chairs, it uses Humanscale’s revolutionary Form-Sensing Mesh Technology and mechanism-free recline for the perfect support.
Humanscale's FLOAT is a revolutionary standing office desk that seamlessly adjusts between sitting and standing postures without interrupting workflow. With a minimal aesthetic, Float complements traditional offices and home work spaces. Using a patented counterbalance mechanism that replaces older technology, Float encourages an active workspace by allowing the user to move quickly and effortlessly from sit to stand positions.

The L6 Notebook Manager dramatically improves user comfort and reduces the risk of long-term injury by promoting good ergonomic posture while using a laptop computer. Ideal for full-time workstations, home offices, hospitality applications, and any other workspace in which a laptop computer is regularly used, the versatile L6 offers a number of practical features: Cable management, heat ventilation, security features, and an optional removable USB hub.
Designed to suit a range of settings, the M2 allows the user to bring their work to them, versus having to adjust to a static monitor stand. Its articulating arm options offer effortless depth adjustment, plus support a wide range of flat-panel screens that weigh 3.6 – 9 kilograms (8 – 20 pounds). Instead of using a gas cylinder to counterbalance the weight of the monitor, the M2 monitor arm uses extension-spring technology. Without clunky mechanisms to complicate the design, it offers uncompromising, long-term durability and an ultra-thin design that complements flat-panel monitors, and attachments for a truly flexible workstation.
The next generation in portable sit/stand solutions. Sleeker, easier to use and comprised of sustainable materials, it’s a vast improvement over current sit/stand surfaces. It features a simple setup, portability and near effortless adjustability – transforming ordinary desktops into healthy, active workspaces. (Requires minimum desk size 712mm wide x 725 deep work surface)
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.
