Human Scale Chairs
Founded in 1982, Humanscale is generally recognized as the leading manufacturer of ergonomic chairs for the office. Our many offerings help ensure that individuals who spend hours each day in front of a computer, do so in maximum comfort and with minimal long-term health risks. To achieve this result, our philosophy regarding product design is this: Technology can make simple things complicated or complicated things simple. We believe in the latter approach and strive to design products that combine uncompromising function and honest aesthetics with ultimate ease-of-use.
Knowing that a truly ergonomic chair could make more of a difference to user health than most any other product, Humanscale entered the task seating market in 1999 with the Freedom chair, which has won 8 design awards to-date - including the Design Distinction Award in the prestigious ID Design Review 2000 competition. In a relatively short amount of time, the Freedom chair has revolutionized the task chair industry and has set new standards for task chair performance and functionality. And our new product introductions, such as the M7 line of monitor arms and the Personal SafetyKits, continue to push the boundaries of ergo chair innovation and technology to create a safer and more comfortable work environment. In 2003 the M7 won Gold in the Best of Neocon contest, confirming Humanscale's position as a leader in ergonomic product design.
