Humanscale® Liberty® Side Chair
Form-Sensing Mesh Technology
Liberty is unlike any other mesh chair you've seen or experienced! Its mesh back is formed using three panels of non-stretch mesh in the same way a tailor uses multiple pieces of material to custom fit clothing to the 3-dimensional shapes of the body. This approach allows Liberty's contours to be customized and optimized for the human back.
In fact, with its exclusive tri-panel construction, Liberty has the body-fitting contours that single-panel, stretch mesh chairs simply can't achieve. And because Liberty's mesh doesn't stretch, it provides correct lumbar support without the need for an external device.
Materials & Finishes
The transparent mesh textiles were designed by Elizabeth Whelan to provide optimal ergonomic support and comfort by melding strength, flexibility and resiliency. They surpass the performance criteria for contract seating textiles and meet a variety of environmental standards in both the U.S. and Europe. They have a pleasing hand that is gentle to touch. In fact, these mesh offerings were specifically designed to be gentle on your clothes as well.
Liberty was designed to have minimal impact on our environment. It is lighter in weight and made from significantly fewer parts than every chair in its class, which means that less material and fewer manufacturing processes are used in its creation. More than 54% of the material is recycled and more than 95% is recyclable!
“If a design solves a functional problem as simply and elegantly as possible, it will not only have superior performance, but its aesthetic will be timeless as well.” — Robert King, Humanscale Founder and CEO
Humanscale was founded in 1983 with a mission to develop high-performance ergonomic office tools that would solve functional problems as straightforwardly and gracefully as possible. Beginning with its first product — an anti-glare filter that improved the visibility of monochrome monitors in the early 1980s — the company has methodically designed some of the most innovative products in the industry. In the late 1990s, Humanscale made a significant mark with its introduction of high-performance articulating keyboard systems, offering effortless one-touch adjustability while eliminating the knee-clearance issues associated with competing solutions. Today, the company is still the leader in that product category.
In 1999, Humanscale turned heads in the contract furniture industry with the introduction of the Freedom chair, designed by ergonomics pioneer Niels Diffrient. Combining unprecedented functionality with minimal manual controls, the chair broke new ground by utilizing dynamic mechanisms that respond to the requirements of each individual user automatically. Since its introduction in 1999, Freedom has won 10 international design awards and has been featured in virtually every major design publication.
Building on the success of the Freedom chair, in 2004 Diffrient designed the Liberty chair, which featured a tri-panel configuration of non-stretch mesh that provides tailor-made lumbar support without external devices.
In addition to task and office seating, Humanscale's award-winning product line includes articulating keyboard supports, adjustable monitor arms, task lighting, CPU holders, laptop holders, foot rests and ergonomic mice. Headquartered in New York City with distribution worldwide, Humanscale is a leader in ergonomic design and is committed to environmental sustainability for all its products.
