While the world may seem to be getting more complicated, some ergonomic chairs are becoming simpler, such as the Humanscale Freedom Drafting Chair.

Designed for taller seating situations like a height-adjustable desk, the smart counterbalance reclining system omits the need for adjusting levers and knobs, making your workday just a little simpler. Enjoy freedom of movement while you sit your way to better health with one chair. The Humanscale Freedom Drafting Chair comes packed with the same features as the much-loved Freedom Task Chair, including self-adjusting design technology that moves with your weight, a dual pivot backrest that adjusts to your spine, optional armrests, and contoured cushions, with the inclusion of a tall cylinder and foot ring, making this an exceptional drafting chair.

The Freedom Drafting Chair can be easily customized, allowing you to pick the components that make this chair uniquely yours.

Headrest

The Freedom Drafting 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 Freedom Drafting Chair Arms

The Freedom arms are available in two different styles: standard and advanced. The standard arms quickly move up and down; the advanced arms are width as well as height adjustable.

Humanscale Armrests

Standard Armrests

  • Revolutionary armrests move in tandem to eliminate the dangers of uneven arm positioning
  • Natural lift-and-release action allows for immediate repositioning without the need for 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
  • The armrests are attached to the backrest, not the seat like most chairs, so they stay in the same relation to your body when you recline

Advanced Armrests

Please Note: Many users prefer the added adjustability of the advanced armrests.

  • Offer all the same features of the standard armrests
  • Arms slide left and right for width adjustment
  • Come 1 1/4'' longer than standard armrests for additional support

Armrest Padding

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 arms have a foam core and a durable, synthetic leather cover
  • Technogel arms contain a softer and extremely comfortable gel layer below the synthetic leather cover
  • Either padding choice can be upholstered in fabric or leather to match your chair
 

Frame Color

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.

Base Color

Fabric

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.

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.

Seat Cushion

Humanscale offers a standard padded foam or gel seat cushion on the Freedom Drafting 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

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.

Seat Height

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.

High F Chair 18'' diameter foot ring
High R Chair 21'' diameter foot ring
 

Casters

Four caster/glide options are available. Most of our customers select the standard casters for carpet floors or soft casters for hard floors. Glides are perfect for a stationary chair, and the locking casters let the chair move around when no one is sitting down.

Standard Hard Casters 2 1/2'' double-wheeled for carpeted floors
Soft Casters 2 1/2'' soft double-wheeled for hard floors
Glides Non-rolling glides for fixed location use
Locking Casters Lock into position when you sit on the chair
