Humanscale Freedom High Back

The Freedom chair offers an elegant but simple appearance for any office. The Freedom chair was designed specifically to encourage frequent, spontaneous changes of posture. There are no locks and no tension springs to negotiate. In their place are mechanisms that automatically support your body in every position.

Our bodies are designed to move-movement provides nourishment for the spine and keeps the joints flexible. Lack of movement makes your muscles fatigued.

The automatic headrest on the Freedom high back adjusts to and cradles your head and neck as you recline, and moves out of the way when you sit upright.The Freedom chair's revolutionary reclining action allows you to maintain a near constant eye level as you recline. The angle between your torso and legs also opens up. The contoured cushions are sculpted to closely follow body contours.

The pivoting backrest automatically adapts to the changing needs of your spine as you recline.

The synchronous armrests move up and down together and stay with you as you recline. The Freedom's counterbalance mechanism automatically balances the force required to recline the chair.
