Commercial Seating    Task   

Humanscale Diffrient World

Designer: Niels Diffrient

Designer Niels Diffrient wanted to create the most minimal, full-function task chair ever made. With an innovative tri-panel mesh backrest that provides custom back and lumbar support and lightweight design, Diffrient World is simple, beautiful and functional. The design eliminates the need for traditional mechanisms, instead of using the laws of physics and the sitter’s body weight to offer perfect recline for each individual sitter. Diffrient World offers the ultimate user-friendly sitting experience.
