Diffrient Smart Ocean Chair

Office chairs from Humanscale, Designed by Niels Diffrient

Product description

Back: Monofilament Stripe/Black
Seat: Oxygen/Inhale


Powered by the same form-sensing mesh as the original Smart chair, Smart Ocean is a sequel that’s made for the future as much as the present. It goes beyond sustainability - incorporating nearly 2 lbs. of reclaimed fishing nets, making this an ergonomic task chair that feels good, looks good and does good (for all).


Smart Ocean utilizes material from discarded fishing nets that have been collected in an effort to develop innovative solutions to prevent ocean plastic pollution. The nets are transformed into plastic pellets and then used to manufacture Smart Ocean chairs. Smart Ocean is the first-ever ergonomic chair to be built with recycled net and is also certified by the International Living Future Institute to the full Living Product Challenge — meeting the most rigorous sustainable manufacturing criteria to date.


Smart Ocean is Living Product Certified, meeting the most rigorous sustainable manufacturing criteria to date. This means that Smart Ocean is climate, water and energy positive. 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.
