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.
In many ways, a keyboard support is the heart of an ergonomic workstation. As reach and vision drive posture, an articulating keyboard system allows the user to sit in a healthy, neutral posture by bringing the keyboard and mouse to them. A well-designed articulating keyboard system offers protection from carpal tunnel syndrome, neck and back pain, and other musculoskeletal issues. Since 1999, Humanscale has been the leading manufacturer of articulating keyboard systems and today sells more than all other manufacturers combined. (Designed exclusively for the Float, the 6F incorporates simple dial-a-tilt adjustability and modern styling ideal for all height-adjustable tables.)
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.
M/Flex, Humanscale’s multi-monitor arm system, can go from one to six monitors in minutes, without the need for tools. M/Flex can integrate with any standard work surface through a wide number of attachments on a single post – seamlessly transforming a traditional workspace into a dynamic, ergonomic workstation. Unlike conventional monitor arm systems, it has a small footprint and its aesthetic won’t overpower the existing workspace. Its modular design and strength ensure exceptional performance, making it the perfect multi-monitor solution for a changing technology landscape.
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 height and 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.
