Humanscale believes that high-level functionality is achieved through simplicity. It replaces the heavy and complex mechanisms used in seats with the user’s own body weight and the laws of physics, ensuring the most comfortable seat that encourages movement.
Humanscale Seats are designed without adjustment buttons or levers, making them incredibly easy to use. All seats allow the user to effortlessly change their posture without using manual controls. Designing easy-to-use seats ensures that they are used correctly and healthily.
A soft seat cushion is often comfortable for a short period of time, but uncomfortable when the user sits for long hours. Humanscale’s seat cushions are designed to offer all-day comfort. Also, because the gel used in the seat cushions is non-compressive, it supports the user’s body and maximizes comfort for long periods of time.
Most office chairs have arms that are attached to the seat, providing no support when the user sits or moves from posture to posture. Humanscale designs the arms of all its chairs to attach to the seat back so that when the user moves, the arms remain in a healthy and ergonomic position every time.
Humanscale Chairs are tuned to be perfect for each user, as if they were custom made just for you. Instead of traditional tension mechanisms, which weigh 6.8 kg (15 lbs.) and consist of 40 parts, the work chairs use the laws of physics and the user’s own body weight. As a result, the seat automatically reads the user’s weight and the mechanism ensures a perfect recline with the right tension for each individual.
