Humanscale at the Stockholm Furniture Fair

Between 7th – 11th February 2023, Humanscale presents Path, the world's most sustainable task chair. Designed by Todd Bracher and the Humanscale Design Studio, the Path chair is composed of nearly ten kilograms of recycled materials, which includes reclaimed fishing nets, used plastic bottles, and post-industrial material.

Path is the third in a series of “Ocean” chairs and the latest product to add to Humanscale's Net Positive impact on the planet. Path is designed to feel warm and natural in any environment. Exclusively created for the Path chair, the proprietary Revival textile colour palette carries warm, elegant, and neutral hues, and brings the beauty of the natural world into the workplace.

Humanscale was the first manufacturer to launch a task chair made with ocean plastic when it introduced Smart Ocean in 2018. Following that success, Liberty Ocean was launched, which can also be seen at Stockholm. Both chairs use nearly a kilogram of recycled fishing nets, widely regarded as the most harmful type of plastic in the ocean. In this way, Humanscale supports clean oceans by using abandoned, lost, and discarded fishing nets that damage delicate ecosystems and the marine life that inhabit them.

Products displayed at Humanscale's Stockholm stand

In addition to these revolutionary seating products, Humanscale is proud to unveil the latest collaboration with Kvadrat, featuring a range of patterns and softer textures that fit any space or style. Textiles are integral to the design and performance of Humanscale chairs, and these have been carefully selected not only for their high quality but for their environmental impact. Samples of all the new textiles will be displayed on the iconic Freedom chair.

Humanscale will also utilise the fair to tell the story of its performance-centric design. Each of its ergonomic products are designed for maximum comfort, a long-lasting life, and an industry-leading environmental impact. Visitors to the stand will discover how Humanscale's award winning designs have intuitive features and fewer manual controls, making them easier to use without sacrificing a stylish aesthetic.
