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.
By redefining the capabilities of a monitor arm, Humanscale created the M8, which combines incredible weight capacity with a stylish, slim profile. The M8 allows the user to work in a healthy posture through setting one or multiple monitors at an optimal distance and height. Collaboration is made easier through effortless screen sharing and increased desk space. Through its fusion of flexibility and strength, the M8 accommodates any dual monitor configuration weighing up to 18 kilograms with a maximum screen size of 24 inches each.
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.

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.
This is Humanscale's first venture into all-mesh task seating. Designer Niels Diffrient wanted to create the most minimal, full-function task chair ever made. With an innovative tri-panel mesh backrest that provides custom back and lumbar support and a lightweight design, Diffrient World is, like all Humanscale’s products – simple, beautiful and functional. The design eliminates the need for traditional mechanisms, instead using the laws of physics and the sitter’s body weight to offer perfect recline – offering the ultimate user-friendly sitting experience.
The Liberty Task chair is an intelligent mesh task chair engineered to provide automatic lumbar support, offering simplicity and complete ease of use. It was designed to offer a unique, minimal aesthetic and to provide custom comfort for every person who sits in it. Like Humanscale’s Diffrient Smart and Diffrient World chairs, Liberty uses Humanscale’s revolutionary Form-Sensing Mesh Technology and mechanism-free recline for perfect support and unprecedented comfort.
In today’s fast-paced, agile work environment, there’s no time for discomfort. M2.1, part of Humanscale’s revolutionary new monitor arm line, instantly improves the comfort, health and productivity of any workspace. M2.1 supports a better working posture, creates more usable desktop space and helps maintain a clutter-free environment. It offers quick, simple installation and industry-leading flexibility thanks to patent-pending Quick Release joints that instantly snap together for a secure and robust fit. Fully compatible with traditional desks and sit/stand workstations alike, M2.1 meets a variety of configuration needs for lighter monitors up to 7kg.
