Seat Fabric

Pick your seat upholstery from the fabrics and leathers below. Note that the gel seat option is only available in Vellum and Wave fabrics.

Wave - Grade 1

This four-way stretch textile with a three-dimensional wave pattern offers a range of brilliant colors taken from nature. It exceeds all standards for contract upholstery.

Vellum - Grade 1

Constructed from a blend of nylon, Cordura and elastic yarn, this four-way stretch textile offers a pleasing texture, while providing the extreme durability required for long-term use.

Lotus - Grade 1

This four-way stretch textile is water repellant and easy to clean, making it an ideal textile for healthcare and hospitality environments. Its polyurethane finish with nylon backing boasts a soft texture while offering exceptional durability. It exceeds all standards for contract upholstery and healthcare tests.

Sensuede - Grade 3

Sensuede was developed to be the best and most luxurious engineered suede available. The faux suede'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.

Vicenza Leather - Grade 0

A lightly corrected, aniline dyed leather produced from European hides. It receives a special retannage that enriches the leather and tightens the grain.

Bizon Leather - Grade 1

Bizon is a durable, water-resistant leather suitable for a wide range of applications. The combination of a special retannage and technically-advanced finishing process results in a leather that is not only water-resistant but also practical for applications that require a durable finish.

Cervo Leather - Grade 3

Cervo is chromium tanned and aniline dyed. The unique tannage approximates the rich luxurious suppleness of deer skin. The clarity and depth of the aniline dyes provide a distinct beauty enhancing all the natural characteristics. Cervo is thicker than the other naked leathers in our collection. Specialized milling adds additional character providing a soft pebble grain texture unmatched by any other leather in its class.


Box Stitching Color

Choose from a variety of different color box stitchings for your chair. This option is only available for leather upholstery.

Box Stitching Colors Humanscale Liberty Chair

Seat Cushion

The Liberty's thin seat cushion is designed specifically for long-term sitting comfort, whether with the double foam seat or the optional Technogel cushion that maximizes weight distribution and comfort. 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

Please Note: 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.

Humanscale Freedom Chair Seat Cushion

Seat Height

The Humanscale Liberty Chair is available in your choice of four cylinder heights. Seat heights are measured from the floor to the compressed front center of the seat cushion:

  3. Humanscale Liberty Chair 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Apr 25th 2013

    Love everything about it. I originally intended to buy a Herman Miller Aeron chair, but this was SO much more comfortable. The price through The Human Solution was excellent, I saved hundreds of dollars compared to the price at a competitor's showroom, where I originally sat in the chair. No complaints with the chair or with Human Solution.

    I purchased 50+ of these chairs for conference room/training room seating. They tend to "disappear" into private offices because folks find them so comfortable. Overall, a very good chair for the money -- good to look at too!
