As the pioneer and leader of office ergonomics, Humanscale make products that allow workstations to adapt to the user, rather than the other way round.
Humanscale was founded in 1983 by CEO Robert King with a focus on high-performance tools that help support a healthy, more active way of working, Humanscale is now the global ergonomics leader with a reputation for designing intuitive products that improve the comfort and health of office workers.
Headquartered in New York, Humanscale made its first mark as a workplace ergonomics pioneer in the 1990s with the introduction of revolutionary articulating keyboard systems. Humanscale strengthened its status as a true market leader in 1999 with the introduction of the Freedom chair, created by renowned ergonomics designer Niels Diffrient. This innovative executive task chair broke new ground by bringing together unprecedented functionality with minimal manual controls. Humanscale followed suit with a series of Diffrient seating designs including Liberty, Diffrient World, and Smart chairs.
Humanscale has locations in more than 28 countries now and has even gained attention from Hollywood, with their products gracing the sets of hit television shows and films including 24, The Newsroom, New Girl, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Mission: Impossible III and The Bourne Ultimatum.
