Product description


The Smart’s form-sensing mesh makes for the most intelligent ergonomic office chair you’ve ever met. Designer Niels Diffrient’s radical technology adapts its lumbar support to each unique user, providing targeted comfort and ease of use for all bodies.


Diffrient Smart is a minimal mesh task chair that is a striking addition to any modern office thanks to its linear, geometric design that easily integrates into any environment. With a unique U-shaped back and minimal lines, Diffrient Smart also features arm rests that are attached to the back of the chair, so they move with the user for dynamic support. Its brushed aluminium finish ensures Smart’s longevity, while its automatic recline support every individual that sits in it. Diffrient Smart’s revolutionary tri-panel mesh backrest offers instant support and allows the user to engage in healthy, ergonomic postures.

Every time we make these products the planet is better off. With a mission to create a healthier world, we are proud that over 60% of our products are certified net positive.


Ease Of Use
Featuring Humanscale’s weight-sensitive, mechanism-free recline, Smart automatically adjusts to the body weight of each sitter to provide perfect recline support. Using the laws of physics, all the user has to do is sit and the chair will provide the correct amount of tension for their shape.

Linear Visual Design
Free of manual controls, Diffrient Smart has a striking, sleek aesthetic, and its U-shaped back makes it the perfect fit for any high-design environment. With linear lines in the backrest and strong mesh for maximum support, it’s the ideal task chair for the modern, active workspace.

Tailored Backrest
To ensure every person who sits in Diffrient Smart would have perfect lumbar support, Diffrient created a tri-panel mesh backrest to automatically adapt to the user’s needs. Eliminating the need for complicated adjustments and external lumbar devices, Diffrient Smart uses Form-Sensing Mesh technology for easy, ongoing comfort.
