Diffrient World

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.

Diffrient World

We believe it’s important to understand features that make each chair unique so you can find what works best for your needs and preferences. Get to know the ergonomic benefits of each feature and how it relates to your work style.
Diffrient World
  • Back Support
    • This chair offers reclining capabilities that reduce stress on your back and encourage movement throughout your workday.
  • Lumbar Support
    • 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.
  • Armrest Support
    • 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.
  • Seat Cushion
    • 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.
  • Back Tension
    • 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.
  • Casters
    • 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.

    I'm an animator and sit in front of the computer for extended periods of time this chair is very comfortable, and offers great support for long periods of time. Based on other chairs of similar quality and adjustability - I found this chair to be the best option for the price. Also the mesh fabric is comfy and breathable. Also it came fully assembled :)

      Customer comments about Diffrient World® Adjustable Arm Office Chair:

      I work at home several days per week, having to sit at my desk for hours at a stretch. I love the back support on this chair. It is not only comfortable but looks great too. I chose the citron mesh wanting to get away from the usual office look. It blends very well with my office decor.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The chair was delivered at the time promised. The drivers were friendly and professional.

            I use this chair everyday for work. The adjustable arm chair I received was defective within the arms, so I returned that model for the same model with stationary arms which I LOVE.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Room & Board responded to my exchange request right away and replaced the defective chair within a couple of weeks. The delivery team is very courteous.

            Chair looks great and is very comfortable. Rolls easily on low-pile carpet. Great lumbar support of the lower back and it does not tip back easily under my weight (220 lb).

                This office chair is worth the extra money spent. The cheaper products online I've seen and sat in at work, and in other offices. The difference is quite noticeable. I have been purchasing home items from R & B for many years now. I have virtually all the things I ever bought - save the things I sold as used.

                This chair was a great choice. I am in a 15x15 bedroom and my computer desk is also in this space. Originally I was looking at competitors products, but was attracted to this chair because of how "light" it looks in the room. Some of the competitors products were far too bulky, and would not blend in nearly as well in the space. My one and only thing I would love to see changed is the arm rests do not adjust up and down. Adding that as a feature would be a bonus and is by no means a deal breaker.
