Humanscale Liberty Chair, and the Humanscale Liberty Ocean Chair.

Designed by the genius of Niels Diffrient, the Humanscale Liberty Chair, is an evolution from the original Humanscale Freedom Chair. The now-classic Freedom Chair,  considered by many experts like one top quality and ergonomic executive chair, required a complementary line for all team members, keeping most of the features of the original. This way, the Humanscale  Liberty Chair was born. On the other hand, the Humanscale Liberty Ocean Chair has the particularity of using two pounds of fishing nets in some parts of its body. For the Design team of Humanscale Furniture, this was quite a challenge, since the structural condition of the fishing nets requires special settings to make it dry by complete. This results in additions of time and costs for Humanscale. Nevertheless, the firm is taking these costs, betting for long-term satisfaction, and a true commitment to the environment, while encouraging other firms to do the same.
