The Diffrient World chair is Humanscale's first foray into all-mesh task seating. Designer Niels Diffrient wanted to design the most minimal, full-function task chair ever created. With an innovative tri-panel mesh backrest that provides custom back and lumbar support and a lightweight design, Diffrient World is, like all of Humanscale’s products, simple and stunningly functional. This design eliminates the need for hard to adjust mechanisms. This design is self adjusting. Diffrient World offers the ultimate user-friendly work chair experience. The Diffrient World chair is warrantied for 15 years by Humanscale and is certified for 24/7 multi-shift usage for sitters up to 300 pounds.
