Design Studio Note: We like the fact that the Humanscale Diffrient World chair does not have an annoying cross bar that runs across the front of the seat edge if configured in an all mesh seat. The cross bar in under the chair. This is helpful if you are one of those people that tend to 'perch' on the front of their chair! We also like the fact that the chair is light weight, has minimal parts that could fail and is very environmentally friendly. The Humanscale Diffrient World chair is a unique design that can be configured with an all mesh seat or a conventional foam seat pan upholstered in one of the many Humanscale fabrics. Nice accent and a little padding never hurts!

Back Mesh Patterns & Colors (For seat textiles please click on the green 'Fabric Selector' button above)
Catena features a pure, clean weave—free of any additional patterns or motifs—in colors inspired by the rich hues of spices, which allow the chair to seamlessly integrate into its setting. It’s simple aesthetic makes it a classic design choice for modern and contemporary environments.
This brilliant weave of monofilament strands and silver-coated yarns offers resiliency and
durability. The award-winning mesh textile was designed to provide optimal ergonomic
support and comfort by melding strength and flexibility. Like Humanscale's other meshes,
Silver Check has a low abrasion factor and is extremely gentle on clothing.

This award-winning mesh textile was designed to provide optimal ergonomic support and comfort
by melding strength, flexibility and resiliency. Using only monofilament yarns that are thin and strong,
a simple but classic stripe pattern is achieved through weave structure and yarn placement. This
pattern has slight elasticity, but terrific memory.

Dash-one of the latest mesh innovations from Elizabeth Whelan Design-was inspired by the
way in which the color appears and then disappears, creating a colored "dash" across the fabric
surface. Dash combines a variety of elements to be as strong, lightweight and responsive as
possible. With a distinct pattern and small scale, Dash carries color brilliantly and densely for a

Pinstripe is a lightweight mesh, that still manages to provide the strength and support of a much
heavier mesh, by using two different monofilament stretch yarns to provide firmness and excellent
recovery of the fabric. Only the pinstripe yarns take the dye, and the monofilament yarns are
grey instead of black, giving a more neutral background to the pattern and allowing light to pass
through the fabric.

Invisible Recline Mechanism
The Humanscale Diffrient World chair uses the laws of physics and harnesses the user’s body weight to automatically provide the right amount of recline for every individual, every time. Its groundbreaking mechanism-free recline action leverages two parts of the chair’s frame to provide automatic, balanced support throughout the full range of motion for maximum support.
Diffrient developed the chair’s back using the laws of physics, which eliminates the requirement for a separate lumbar support, which tends to create a pressure point and requires manual adjustment. With patented Form Sensing Mesh Technology, the backrest perfectly conforms to the sitter’s entire back as if custom made for them.
Sitting on Air
A truly light-weight chair, the Humanscale Diffrient World chair replaces the standard cushion seat with a low-abrasion, non-stretch mesh. To maximize comfort, Diffrient eliminated the front edge of the chair, solving a perennial problem of hard edges placing pressure on the knees and contact stress behind the thighs, allowing long-term comfort and total supports for every sitter.
