Having won ten design awards including the Design Distinction Award in the prestigious ID Design Review 2000 competition, the Freedom chair by Niels Diffrient has reinvented the task chair industry. The chair's weight-sensitive recline, contemporaneously adjustable armrests, and dynamically positioned headrest, has set new standards for task chair efficiency and functionality to provide comfort while also reducing the possibility of long-term injury.

The Freedom chair was designed particularly to stimulate constant, spontaneous changes of posture. No locks and no tension springs are needed to operate. Well-designed mechanisms are used to quickly support your body in each and every position you’ll assume throughout the day.

The Freedom chair is made to provide the optimum ergonomic advantage with few manually-adjusted settings. Once fitted, no further adjustment is required. The concept is that motion, which is necessary for a healthy structure, shouldn't be limited by locking mechanisms and manual adjustments.
