CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Humanscale comes to NeoCon 2019 with new seating solutions that accommodate a variety of work environments and styles, broadening an already comprehensive line of seating for the workspace. From informal collaborative settings to executive offices and boardrooms, Humanscale’s newest offerings are flexible, adaptable and automatically adjust to any sitter without requiring tedious manual adjustments. NeoCon visitors will have the opportunity to preview Alto, an ergonomic stool designed by Don Chadwick, and meet with the influential designer. The showroom, suite 351, will also feature Summa, a luxurious new executive chair, and the iconic Freedom in a revolutionary chrome-free leather upholstery option that sets a new standard for the healthy, ergonomic workspace. The additions will be shown alongside Humanscale’s existing task, occasional and multipurpose chairs, revealing a comprehensive suite and catering to a wide variety workspace needs.
Humanscale will provide attendees with a special sneak peek at its new collaboration with Don Chadwick, including a special guest appearance from the designer himself. Chadwick, who will be on hand in the Humanscale showroom, will speak about the process of creating a multipurpose chair that he calls “a true celebration of form and function - a stool rooted in providing ergonomic comfort with simple design.”
A company at the forefront of material transparency, Humanscale will present its new and existing seating solutions in a new line of premium chrome-free leather. The upholstery utilizes a carbon neutral tannery that does not utilize chromium, a harmful chemical used in most methods for tanning leathers. The brand is aiming to become the first company to offer exclusively chrome-free leather.
Designed for today’s dynamic leaders, Summa exudes luxurious simplicity, presenting a clean aesthetic from every angle. It reflects the growing need for versatile executive seating and is one of the brand’s first entries into the C-Suite landscape. Suitable for the corner office, the boardroom as well as the home office, it features an auto-recline that automatically responds to the user for seamless support and comfort. It will be ready to order in Quarter 4 2019 with seven of Humanscale’s new chrome-free leather options.
Freedom 20th Anniversary
Humanscale’s iconic Freedom chair will also be available in chrome-free leather. Designed by Niels Diffrient in 1999, Freedom revolutionized the seating industry as the first ever self-adjusting chair. Two decades later, it remains the gold standard and is revered for its elegant simplicity, functionality and timeless design. In celebration of its twenty-year anniversary, the renowned chair is on a world tour, making monthly appearances in cities and important events around the globe including NeoCon. As the first chair to adapt to real people and real movement, these activations will give trade and consumers the opportunity to personally experience and celebrate Freedom’s intuitive ergonomic design.
