Humanscale World One Chair Features
Like all Humanscale chairs, the World One’s design eliminates the need for traditional mechanisms by using the laws of physics and the sitter’s body weight to offer a perfect recline. World One features armrests that are attached to the back of the chair and move with the user, providing custom comfort throughout the workday. A high-value task chair with minimal parts, World One was built with longevity in mind to look as good in ten years as it does today.
Invisible Recline Mechanism
One World 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.
Tri-panel, non-stretch mesh construction creates body-fitting contours and self-adjusting lumbar support for an automatic, customized fit.
All body Types
Frame-less front edge eliminates contact stress behind the knee and designed for users up to 140kg. Provides appropriate support and automatic resistance regardless of user’s size. Size-adjustable to fit the widest range of body sizes.
Traditionally, Humanscale chairs have sat amongst the highest-priced chairs on the market, given their superior performance, top of the line materials, and exceptional functionality. Now, after extensive engineering, we are excited to announce the launch of World One, a task chair that delivers both Humanscale quality and the latest technology at a more accessible price point using fewer parts. The World One is a new approach to Niels Diffrient’s renowned World Chair, our most minimal, yet fully functional task chair ever made. Designed with the same innovative tri-panel mesh backrest and weight-sensitive reclined as its predecessor, the World One chair is a cost-effective solution that delivers unmatched ergonomic support and the ultimate user-friendly sitting experience. By offering it in just one model version/one SKU/one color, it enables us offer it to you at a more accessible price point and faster lead times to go after the mid-market seating price points that Humanscale does not currently participate. World One is not meant to replace or overlap with your current World chair focus, but rather complement and address the more price sensitive consumers purchasing for their home office that may not have been able to afford our current seating assortment offer.
