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.

Customer comments about Diffrient World® Office Chair:

The chair is nice on the eyes! However, it isn't more than 65% comfortable, it creaks and makes odd noices when I move, the arms rattleand wiggle when my arms are resting.The seat is rather hard. One very positive is it rolls very easily even over my carpet. It is not worth the high price.

Service and delivery comments:

Delivery was very good, very friendly, helpful and on time.

    Customer comments about Diffrient World® Office Chair:

    This chair replaces an older non-adjustable chair I had used at my computer desk, that gave my shoulders fits. Because chair height is adjustable, my shoulders are improving noticeably. The look is fabulous, fabric is amazing and it is so very comfortable.

      Love the white and blue color -- much more cheery than your typical black/grey computer chair. A bit pricy for an office chair, but comfortable and well built.

      Customer comments about Diffrient World® Office Chair:

      I needed a comfortable and modern white desk chair. Modern and comfortable are adjectives that do not always go together when describing furniture. But this is the exception. The chair looks great, very easy to emsamble, light and its design allows me to spend hours working at the computer and I don't even notice I am sitting on a cloud. Great job! The only bad thing was that it took a lot of time to arrive after I ordered it. But it was worth the waiting!

      Great chair. Functional yet stylish. Mesh back and seating make it lighter than most office chairs. Very comfortable although limited in adjust-ability.

          Customer comments about Diffrient World® Office Chair:

          I spend a min 6hrs a day in a chair and invested in the Aeron chair a several years back to help preserve my spine over the long haul. One of the best investments I've made. Just recently started to work from home a few days during the week, so decided to invest in this Diffrient World chair.

          Before purchasing, I was a bit concerned that the reclining mechanism would continue to push me forward and/or not keep me upright, but this chair has just the right amount of resistance. Was also concerned that the lack of controls would somehow make it inferior, but having had it now for a few weeks, it is everything my Aeron wish it could be and just as comfortable.

          Along with the comfort, I love the design, color, how quiet and smooth it rolls and the adjustable seat. My only wish would be that the chair came stocked with adjustable arms, but that hasn't been an issue for me.
