Made by Humanscale®, the Diffrient World office chair, designed by Niels Diffrient, is incredibly comfortable and intuitive. It automatically adjusts the angle of recline as you move naturally in the chair, providing support without the use of knobs and levers. Its frameless front edge eliminates contact stress behind the knees, while the arms move with the backrest for dynamic support, making it easier than ever to achieve comfort while you work.See the full Diffrient World collection

- This chair offers reclining capabilities that reduce stress on your back and encourage movement throughout your workday.
- Form-sensing mesh provides additional lower back support. This feature mimics the natural curve of your spine to provide the greatest amount of lower back support when seated, which is important if the chair is used frequently or as a primary task chair.
- Armrests offer extra support throughout the workday to reduce strain on your upper arms and neck. This chair is available in both fixed and adjustable height armrest options to complement its design and provide the right support.
- This chair’s frameless front edge eliminates contact stress behind knees to ensure lasting comfort and proper circulation in your legs.
Adjustable Seat Depth
- Adjusting your seat depth to thigh length provides a comfortable, healthy sit. This is a helpful feature if the chair will be used by more than one person.
- Self-adjusting tension control automatically regulates the effort required to recline. This is an especially helpful feature if the chair will be used by multiple people, as it automatically adjusts to accommodate personal preferences.
Adjustable Seat Height
- This is a great feature if the chair will be used by multiple people or at more than one work surface. Position your seat height so thighs are parallel to the floor and feet are flat for healthy circulation in your legs.
- This chair features hard plastic casters that are ideal for carpeted floors. Soft plastic casters, best for hard floors, can be ordered. Contact us for details.
