  • Niels Diffrient Freedom® Task Chair with Headrest in Vicenza Leather
    dwr.com
    Niels Diffrient's Freedom Chair (1999) was a breakthrough in ergonomic task seating. With a height-adjustable headrest, the headrest version offers customized support for the head, allowing for proper eye-level positioning when working long hours at a computer station. The Freedom Chair is designed to fit almost all body types. The seat depth is adjustable to properly support the seat and thighs, while the adjustable back support helps keep the lumbar region of the body in line. Often, ergonomic chairs are likely to be improperly positioned, resulting in the creation of more problems than they solve. The Freedom Chair is simpler than other chairs, eliminating many manual adjustments and creating instead a system of internal mechanisms that respond to the user's needs. A unique counterbalancing tilt mechanism self-adjusts according to the user's weight and movement, thus eliminating the need for manual fixes. In addition, the chair and seatback can be easily raised or lowered, and the seat itself moves forward or back. Any adjustments can be easily made while the user is seated for accurate positioning. Because of a natural lift-and-release action, the armrests are effortlessly repositioned in tandem depending on the task at hand. The seat cushion provides excellent shock absorption and weight distribution for unmatched comfort. Made in U.S.A. For big shots who leave small footprints, Freedom is 62% recycled, 90% recyclable and 100% comfortable.

  • Niels Diffrient Liberty Task Chair
    dwr.com
    In the manufacture of the Liberty Chair (2005) from Humanscale, 54% of theare recycled and 93% are recyclable. In addition to exceeding a variety of environmental standards, Liberty provides next generation seating, meaning perfect support, without external knobs or levers. To create this acclaimed chair, Niels Diffrient developed a tri-panel construction method similar to the way a tailor uses three panels of material to create a custom shirt. This inspired approach turns breathable, form-sensing mesh into body-fitting contours for lumbar support. And because this mesh displaces, rather than stretches, no external devices are necessary for a self-adjusting, customized fit. The innovative Technogel seat is designed to match body contours for long-term comfort. Diffrient recently added a height-adjustable feature to the Technogel-covered arms for increased ergonomic benefits. As users spontaneously change positions throughout the day, a patented counterbalance mechanism automatically provides the right amount of recline tension. Made in U.S.A. For big shots who leave small footprints, Liberty is 54% recycled, 93% recyclable and 100% comfortable.

The Swag leg group from George Nelson is back! Each piece displays the distinctively slender and majestic metal legs that give the "swag" appearance to the group. The beauty and unique design of each piece combined with the legendary quality from Herman Miller makes the Swag leg group a pleasant addition. Herman Miller founder D.J. DePree saw an article in a 1945 Life magazine featuring George Nelson's Storagewall unit, which was causing a sensation in the furniture industry. He was so impressed that he paid a visit to Nelson in New York and convinced him to be his director of design, which spurred Nelson to found his design firm, George Nelson & Associates. The warm personal and professional relationship between Nelson and DePree yielded a stunning range of products, from the playful Marshmallow Sofa to the first L-shaped desk, a precursor of today's workstation. Separate seat and back. The swag leg chair has a look that's light-scaled and sculpted; the chair shell flexes with the sitter and prevents heat buildup.
