- Humanscale Diffrient World Chair

The Humanscale Diffrient World Chair :

Diffrient's World Chair is Humanscale's first foray into all-mesh task seating. Designer Niels Diffrient wanted to create the most minimal, full-function task chair ever made. With an innovative tri-panel mesh backrest that provides custom back and lumbar support and a lightweight design, Diffrient World Chair is, like all of Humanscale's products, simple, beautiful and functional. The design eliminates the need for traditional mechanisms, instead using the laws of physics and the sitter's body weight to offer perfect recline for each individual sitter. Diffrient World Chair offers the ultimate user-friendly sitting experience.

Design Story:

Drawing inspiration from the three dimensional approach tailors take when creating men's suits, Niels Diffrient wanted to build a minimal mesh task chair with a back that automatically fits the user. He collaborated with textile designer Elizabeth Whelan to create a flexible but strong non-stretch mesh, so the backrest would take on the shape of the sitter. He also wanted the World Chair to be minimal but highly functional, so he worked to eliminate tension mechanisms, knobs and adjustment levers. The result is a task chair that is simple but beautiful, supporting each user instantly and changing the way people sit.


Humanscale Diffrient World Chair White About Diffrient World Chair
Niels Diffrient designed the Diffrient World Chair to offer ease of use and effortless functionality. With weight-sensitive recline that adjusts automatically and armrests that are attached to the back of the chair so they move with the user for ergonomic comfort, Diffrient World Chair provides custom comfort for every sitter. A high quality, affordable task chair with minimal parts, Diffrient World Chair was built with longevity in mind and will look as good in ten years as it does today.
Humanscale Diffrient World Chair Backrest & Recline Mechanism Invisible Recline Mechanism
The Diffrient World Chair uses the laws of physics and harnesses the user's body weight to automatically provide the right amount of recline for every individual, every time. Its groundbreaking mechanism-free recline action leverages two parts of the chair's frame to provide automatic, balanced support throughout the full range of motion for maximum support.


Humanscale Diffrient World Chair Backrest & Recline Mechanism Responsive Backrest
Diffrient developed the chair's back using the laws of physics, which eliminates the requirement for a separate lumbar support, which tends to create a pressure point and requires manual adjustment. With patented Form Sensing Mesh Technology, the backrest perfectly conforms to the sitter's entire back as if custom made for them.


Humanscale Diffrient World Chair Sitting on Air
A truly lightweight chair, the Diffrient World Chair replaces the standard cushion seat with a low-abrasion, non-stretch mesh. To maximize comfort, Diffrient eliminated the front edge of the chair, solving a perennial problem of hard edges placing pressure on the knees and contact stress behind the thighs, allowing long-term comfort and total supports for every sitter.



The Diffrient World Chair's groundbreaking minimal form inspired the creation of the award-winning Pinstripe textile, a distinctive pattern with a unique weave that has the strength to support the sitter and the flexibility to provide complete comfort.

Impressive design chair! Definitely not for everyone's taste, but definitely for everyone's comfort! This chair - take a note - without any difficult and awkward adjustment levers- simply designed to fit your body's posture. I feel it adapts to my body right away and I don't feel any tension even after long hours of sitting.
At the start I was sceptic of ordering such a pricy chair, but without a doubt it is definitely worth the price and I would highly recommend not to waste money on any other ergonomic office chairs - nothing can beat Humanscale!

Advantages: Indescribable comfort, very durable, impressive design!

I was tired of looking for the tailor-made chair that will be compatible with my needs. But once I’d tried Humanscale Diffrient World - I don’t want any others. There’s no more pain my back, even after sitting in the same position for a few hours.

My experience with this Humanscale chair lead me to strongly recommend it for anybody who loves comfort, modern design and high functionality. If I have to look for chairs to my work once more, there’s no doubt I would choose Humanscale chairs again and again.

Across the years that I have spent working in the office, I had to sit on many different types of chairs with many knobs and adjustment levers that I have always found hard to operate.

What I am appreciating the most in these Humanscale chairs is their ‘’all-purpose’’ nature: simply find out they fit like a glove, probably because of the unique way they were designed. The one I have bought is truly comfortable! And what is interesting, there’s no need for manual controls, the chair adapt itself to my back.
