The Freedom Chair's optional headrest moves dynamically into place when the user reclines and out of the way when the user sits up. This lets it move with the natural arc of the head and neck for perfect support through the full range of recline. It has a 5" range of vertical adjustment. The headrest is contoured to cradle the head and neck comfortably.
Humanscale offers a standard padded foam or gel seat cushion on the Freedom chair. Both seats are very comfortable, but the gel seat upgrade offers better long-term support and relief of pressure points for users that sit in their chair 8 to 10 hours a day.
- Standard foam seat is contoured to fit your body and reduce pressure points, and is both comfortable and supportive
- Technogel seat cushion is a non-degradable, non-compressible Technogel layer on top of a foam core that provides maximum pressure distribution and offers unmatched, long-term comfort
- Technogel seat is available only with the Wave, Lotus and Vellum fabrics and is not available with leather or Sensuede
Our recommendation: Technogel has a firmer "sit" than the standard foam that softens up somewhat after a few minutes and will offer better back support if you are seated for long periods of time. Users who are up and down more may prefer the foam.
The Freedom Drafting Chair's cylinder has an 8" travel range from 20.5" - 28.5" seat cushion height. Its foot ring may be selected in one of two sizes.
- F: 18" diameter foot ring
- R: 21" diameter foot ring
Four caster/glide options are available.
- Hard casters: for use on soft floors
- Soft casters: for wood, tile and other hard floors
- Glides: for non-rolling chairs
The Freedom arms are available in two different styles: standard and advanced. The standard arms quickly move up and down; the advanced arms are height adjustable and offer inward pivot with slightly longer armrests.
- Armrests move in tandem to eliminate the dangers of uneven arm positioning
- Natural lift and release action allows immediate repositioning without the use of buttons or locks
- The armrests provide a 6" range of vertical motion to accommodate all users and tasks, and they can be positioned below thigh-level for close table or desk work
- Unlike most office chairs, the armrests are attached to the backrest, not the seat, so they stay in the same relation to your body when you recline
- Offer all the same features of the standard armrests
- Arms slide left and right for intuitive width adjustment
- Come 1 1/4" longer than standard armrests for additional support
Our recommendation: Many users prefer the added adjustability of the advanced armrests for additional forearm support.
Once you pick the type of arms to best suit your needs, choose your arm padding, Duron or Technogel. Add a surface material to complement your Freedom color options.
- Duron is a durable polyurethane arm with a Technogel core for added comfort, and it comes standard on both arm styles
- Technogel is softer and extremely comfortable, and the standard upholstery on the gel arms is black, Xanium synthetic leather
- Either arm padding can be upholstered to match your chair
This option places a Cal 133 approved fireproof barrier between the upholstery and cushioning. It also ensures that plastic components are fire retardent.
The Freedom Drafting Chair is available with three frame colors: graphite and titanium frames are standard colors, and the polished aluminum frame is an upgrade available with either titanium or graphite shells on the cushions and arms.
This is what a blue Freedom Chair looks like with each of the three frame choices:
The Freedom Chair comes standard with a highly durable composite base with graphite or titanium finish, or upgrade to a polished aluminum base finish.

Sensuede was developed to be the best and most luxurious engineered suede available. The fauxsuede's soft touch comes from the use of breathable and wrinkle resistant recycled microfibers that are finer than a human hair but are extra-strong, resulting in a very resilient fabric. This material also was selected because of its environmentally sensitive content and manufacturing process.
