  • famished chair for me!
    Used this very performance and quality based chair for sometime, my business time never strains while using this chair...

  • Un excellent siège ergonomique
    J'utilise ce siège ergonomique depuis plusieurs années et je n'ai jamais eu de problème. Confortable grâce à son inclinaison automatique, je recommande le Liberty sans problème.

  • Former Herman Miller chair owner - Very pleased with my purchase
    No more back problems when working from home. I wish the arms would be adjustable in width instead of just going up and down. However, solving back pain while working many hours was the objective and I'm pleased.

Design Story

"I’ve always insisted that the back adjust to the person and we have this unique Form Sensing Mesh that will accommodate any body shape and give you appropriate back support. Whether you’re short, tall, wide, narrow, the back will accommodate you."

Niels Diffrient, Designer


Inspired to create a minimal but functional mesh task chair with curved lines and a contemporary aesthetic, Niels Diffrient designed Liberty. As with the Diffrient World chair, Liberty features an innovative tri-panel non-stretch mesh backrest, which Diffrient said was based on the concept of a tailored men’s shirt. He worked closely with textile designer Elizabeth Whelan to create a mesh that was strong and supportive but still flexible.
