Liberty’s intelligent mechanism-free recline uses the laws of physics and the sitter’s weight to automatically provide the perfect amount of support through the full range of recline. Without manual controls to adjust, the user can change postures effortlessly throughout the day.
Liberty’s mesh back is formed by combining three panels of non-stretch mesh material in the same way a tailor combines multiple pieces of fabric to create a shirt. Its contours are made to custom fit and support each individual sitter throughout the day
Liberty was engineered to automatically adjust to whoever sits in it, instantly accommodating each user regardless of size and weight. Because it has no manual adjustments and features Humanscale’s weight-sensitive recline, the user can move easily and without restrictions.
"I’ve always insisted that the back adjust to the person and we have this unique Form Sensing Mesh that will accommodate any body shape and give you appropriate back support. Whether you’re short, tall, wide, narrow, the back will accommodate you."
Niels Diffrient, Designer
Inspired to create a minimal but functional mesh task chair with curved lines and a contemporary aesthetic, Niels Diffrient designed Liberty. As with the Diffrient World chair, Liberty features an innovative tri-panel non-stretch mesh backrest, which Diffrient said was based on the concept of a tailored men’s shirt. He worked closely with textile designer Elizabeth Whelan to create a mesh that was strong and supportive but still flexible.
Unlike typical mesh work chairs, Liberty's range of mesh textiles work with the chair's supportive framework to provide the utmost comfort in any setting.
