A completely intuitive sitting experience that molds to your body.

The human body is not flat, and our backs in particular needs to be hugged in the right spots. Keeping this in mind, the back of the Diffrient chair has 3 panels for ultimate lumbar support.  Additionally, the mesh seating provides support under your thighs, which is a lifesaver when you are on a long stretch of a project.

A very important feature of this chair is the mechanism-free recline action. The laws of physics are put to the test as two sections of the chair balance against each other and the weight of the sitter, to provide a range of recline. It adjusts to your weight, all you have to do is take a seat.

Amazingly, the Diffrient Chair fits more than 95% of office workers comfortably, 100-300 pounds, 5"0' woman to a 6"4' man. The seat height is completely adjustable.

This intuitive ergonomic chair from Humanscale is truly "diffrient".
