A Net Positive Product

Smart Ocean is the embodiment of our commitment to sustainable manufacturing. Each chair incorporates almost 2 pounds. of recycled fishing net material and is Living Product certified — meeting the most rigorous sustainable manufacturing criteria to date.

Sustainable Design

The material used to produce Smart Ocean is sourced from Net Positiva, a collection and recycling program aimed at combating the detrimental effects of discarded ocean fishing nets. These nets are transformed into recycled nylon pellets used for manufacturing.

Custom Fit Technology

Featuring the same timeless design and functionality as the Diffrient Smart chair, Smart Ocean (available in black frame) offers Form-Sensing Mesh Technology to instantly adjust to and move with every unique user. There is no need for training, instructions or manual adjustments.

IT'S UP TO ALL OF US TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

The ever-growing deluge of plastic pollution in our oceans has a tremendous impact on human health and on the health of our natural environment.

  • 8 million tons of plastic waste enter the ocean each year.
  • 640,000 tons of fishing nets enter the ocean each year.
  • The amount of plastic pollution in the ocean will surpass the amount of fish by 2050 if nothing changes.
  • Fishing nets are identified as the most harmful form of ocean plastic pollution.

Recycling and repurposing plastic keeps it out of the ocean and helps to mitigate many environmental issues.

In addition to partnering with Bureo to protect our oceans, Humanscale is a founding partner of the Next Wave Initiative. Led by Lonely Whale, this consortium includes companies such as Dell and GM and is focused on developing a distribution web that would support the reuse and repurposing of plastic before it ever reaches the ocean.

HUMANSCALE - A HISTORY OF INNOVATION

"My goal is always to design chairs that are so simple to use that the functionality is often invisible to the user." - Niels Diffrient

Niels' beliefs and values are embodied in his designs. As Humanscale shared these values with Niels, his legacy lives on through his products and our shared core beliefs. Find out more about Humanscale's partnership with designer Niels Diffrient.

Humanscale's ergonomic chairs are designed to look as good in ten years' time as they do today.

  • Our textiles exceed 150,000 double rubs in the Wyzenbeek Test, which is five times the industry standard.
  • Our textiles attach to the cushion without adhesives, which prevents wrinkling over time and is better for the environment.
  • Our arm caps feature a separate foam insert, so they will not tear.
  • Our plastics have a texture that prevent scratching.
  • None of our chair surfaces are painted or treated, so there’s no chipping or scratching.
  • We go to great lengths to ensure all the components of our chairs hold up to wear and tear, while maintaining a minimal visual aesthetic.
  • We use fewer parts in our ergonomic chairs to reduce the impact on the environment.

The Humanscale Difference

We develop our chairs without knobs and levers, so they’re incredibly easy to use. All of our chairs allow the user to change postures effortlessly without operating any manual controls. Designing ergonomic chairs that are easy to use ensures that they are used in a correct, healthy way.
Most office chairs feature arms that are attached to the seat, which do not provide support when the user reclines or moves from posture to posture. Humanscale designs all of its desk chairs with the arms attached to the back, so when the sitter moves, the arms are in a healthy, ergonomic position every time.
A soft seat cushion is often comfortable for a short period of time but uncomfortable when the user sits on it for many hours. Humanscale’s seat cushions are engineered to be denser than our competitors’ to offer all day comfort. We also pioneered the use of gel in seat cushions. Because gel doesn’t compress, it supports the sitter’s body and maximizes comfort over many hours.
Humanscale ergonomic desk and office chairs are perfectly adjusted for every user, as if the chair was custom made for you. In lieu of traditional tension mechanisms, which can weigh as much as 15 pounds and be made of up to 40 parts, our task chairs use the laws of physics and the sitter’s own body weight. As a result, the chair automatically reads the weight of the user, allowing for the mechanism to provide perfect recline with the correct tension for every individual.
