 Product Description

The award winning Humanscale Freedom Drafting Chair is every bit the same, comfortable and stylish Freedom Chair but with a taller seated height range that is perfect for taller work surfaces or sit to stand desks. No thought or effort is needed to recline or change positions and movement is a key goal when seeking a healthier work environment. Highly contoured cushions provide excellent back, lumbar and lateral support with a feel reminiscent of the car seats in a luxury sports car. To date, the Humanscale Freedom Chair has won 10 design awards.

Humanscale Freedom Drafting Chair Standard Model Features:

  • Dynamic mechanism opens body angle for improved blood flow and requires no knobs, levers, or tension adjustments.
  • Height adjustable back features contoured lateral support and a prominent lumbar support that maintains a healthy orthotic curve. Backrest features a pivot that moves as you move, responding to the changing needs of your spine.
  • Seat is height and depth adjustable for proper leg support
  • Height adjustable arms move in tandem and can be placed very low for times when you want your arms out of the way. Advanced arms also pivot.
  • 15-year, 24/7 warranty. See full warranty information.

Humanscale Freedom Chair Options

The standard Humanscale Freedom Chair can still be customized to meet your comfort and style requirements.

Humanscale Freedom Chair Arms

Choose from no arms, height adjustable arms, or height adjustable arms with a pivoting armpad, and from two different types of armpads, as well as whether or not you want the armpads upholstered to match your chair.

  • No arms - (we recommend getting this chair with arms as the arms adjust low enough to be out of the way when not needed)
  • Standard arms - height adjustable with a 6" adjustment range
  • Advanced arms - height adjustable and have 1.25" longer armpads; armpads pivot inward

Buy Smart: The advanced arms pivot inward which allows the arms to better support the forearms and elbows, and to bring the armpads closer for thinner bodies. Those who type all day and/or have thin upper bodies will prefer the advanced arms.

Choose from Duron or Gel armpads for your Humanscale Freedom Chair
  • Duron armpads - are crafted of soft polyurethane for durability, and are black
  • Gel armpads - are softer and reduce pressure on the forearms and elbows, and are covered in Xanium synthetic leather so they wipe clean
  • Upholstered armpads are available for either armpad.

Buy Smart: Fabric arms get dirty and wear out before the seat cushions. We recommend skipping the upholstered armpads except on leather chairs or where the chair will see light use.

Freedom Chair Seat Padding

Choose either the standard foam seat or gel seat.

  • Standard foam - molded foam is contoured to match body contours and reduce pressure points
  • Gel seat - is crafted of a non-degradable, non-compressible Technogel layer with a foam core. The gel seat conforms better to the body, distributing your body weight more evenly across the seat pan. This further reduces the pressure of sitting on your body.

Buy Smart: The gel seat takes 15 minutes or so to warm up and conform to your body. It's a great upgrade for those who sit in their chair for long stretches. We recommend the standard padding for those who are up and down, or if the chair sees occasional use.

Freedom Chair Foot Ring Options

Choose from either an 18" or 21" foot ring.  Both are height adjustable.

Buy Smart: The larger foot ring decreases the distance inward that your feet rest.  This is better for circulation.

Casters

  • Standard casters - work well for carpet and plastic carpet protectors
  • Soft casters - are slower and quieter on hard floors such as linoleum, tile, and concert
  • Glides - do not roll at all and work on any floor
  • Locking casters - lock to prevent the chair from rolling when unoccupied.
