Manufacturer spotlight: Humanscale
As the company name implies, Humanscale is focused on making office furniture work for people. The New York furniture manufacturer has been a pioneer of ergonomic furniture since 1983. Now Humanscale designs and manufacturers a diverse line of seating, sit/stand desks, desk accessories and lighting all intended to make working as comfortable as possible.
Humanscale has a long history in designing and creating ergonomic office furniture. The Freedom chair was introduced in 1999, and the task chair is still a popular seating solution for offices all around the world. It features an articulating headrest and a self-adjusting recline to adjust support to all users. The New York Times described the Freedom chair as “the gold standard in office seating.”
As office ergonomic consultants, Humanscale goes above and beyond the role of a traditional furniture manufacturer. Their specialists work directly with offices to achieve comfort and productivity, and Humanscale’s ergonomic program informs their product designs.
Through health product declarations, every product that Humanscale manufactures comes with a clear list of materials and content. This information is available for office designers and furniture buyers so they are aware of the source of materials and fabrics. Humanscale is leading the way in transparency and customer education.
With simple yet functional designs, all Humanscale’s products fit in modern offices to improve the comfort and productivity of office workers. Search all the Humanscale products that Choice Office Furniture carries, and here are a few of our favourite Humanscale creations:
The QuickStand sit/stand workstation attachment turns any desk into a sit/stand workspace. It clamps onto any surface and has a large keyboard tray and easy attachments for monitors. The workstation can be raised or lowered to any height, and the built-in cable management keeps the workstation clutter-free. Humanscale also has a QuickStand Lite – a sit/stand attachment that is smaller but just as easy to install and use.
In addition to chairs and desks, Humanscale also creates everyday accessories to make work more comfortable. The Copy Holder is a simple accessory, but it has been deliberately designed to improve posture while reading documents. To raise laptops at heights better for long-term use, the L6 Notebook Manager is a sturdy stand with cable management, heat ventilation and even security accessories.
