Niels Diffrient's Freedom Chair (1999) was a breakthrough in ergonomic task seating. The Headrest version offers height adjustable, customized support for the head, allowing for proper eye-level positioning when working long hours at a computer station. Often, ergonomic chairs are likely to be improperly positioned, resulting in the creation of more problems than they solve. The Freedom Chair is simpler than other chairs - a unique counterbalancing tilt mechanism self-adjusts according to the user's weight and movement, thus eliminating the need for manual fixes. Any adjustments can be easily made while the user is seated for accurate positioning. The seat cushion provide excellent shock absorption and weight distribution for unmatched comfort. The Freedom Chair was awarded the 2002 National Design Award from the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt Museum. Made in the U.S.A.
