Liberty Side Chair

Designed by Niels Diffrient

A design driven by Humanscale’s passion for the environment, the Liberty Side chair was created to push the boundaries of minimalism found in the Liberty task chair and be as simple and environmentally friendly as possible, without sacrificing Humanscale's philosophy of complete, automatic comfort.  Niels Diffrient developed the Liberty Side to showcase the same complete-body comfort found in Humanscale task chairs, but made with lightweight, recyclable and long-lasting materials.

This contemporary, multipurpose chair uses revolutionary Form-Sensing Mesh Technology and a pivoting backrest to provide complete support during a gentle recline. Designed to complement the Liberty task chair, the Liberty Side is a beautiful and versatile chair that encourages the same balanced movement throughout the day.

REVIEWS
  • Client Meeting Chairs
    I just purchased my first pair of these chairs. Clients have noticed the positive difference and have mentioned several times how comfortable and supportive they are. I originally purchased them because I could get them with no arms to accommodate a few of our bigger clients. So they are working great and I will likely replace more of our client meeting chairs going forward.

  • Used 12 Hours Everyday
    Perfect chair for our long term care lunchroom, for those feeling hot and sweaty, and for those with a sore back. Makes our breaks more enjoyable!

Design Story

“I keep thinking, 'how much simpler can this be?' and come up with the end result.”

Niels Diffrient, Designer


Created by legendary designer Niels Diffrient, the Liberty side chair complements the Liberty task chair and offers comfort, style and flexibility in a conference seat. Diffrient collaborated with textiles designer Elizabeth Whelan to make a mesh design with give, but that would still provide enough firmness for automatic lumbar support. Liberty’s mesh back is formed by combining three panels of this mesh in the same way a tailor combines multiple pieces of fabric to make a shirt. The result is a conference chair with custom-made contours to fit and support the human body in unprecedented comfort.
