Natural lift and release action for immediate repositioning without buttons or locks. 6" range of vertical motion to accommodate all users and tasks.

There are dozens of Humanscale Freedom task chairs throughout our organization. It is a well made chair except in one aspect. Although the description says "graphite frame" leading you to assume high durability, the metal armrest support articulates with the metal chair frame using a PLASTIC connector. The pressure placed on the armrest when rising, lowering or adjusting oneself in the chair eventually results in this weight-bearing plastic part to snap causing the armrest to flop down and expose the sharp edges of the broken piece. This has happened to several people in our office and THREE times to me. After my first break, I adopted an orphan Freedom chair only to have both arms break over the course of six weeks. Humanscale Customer Service has been truly excellent with the repairs but shouldn't you expect a 100% graphite frame for TWELVE HUNDRED DOLLARS? The repair involves replacing plastic with plastic so the inevitable occurs. We have $300 chairs that last longer. If you order a Freedom chair without armrests, you'll have a great chair. (Dark tight weave fabrics last the best.) If you need armrests, save yourself the annoyance and buy something else.

Agree 100% with CitizenOne. Everything about this chair is wonderful except for the arm rests. First the right broke about a year ago. HumanScale customer service was excellent and sent out a pair of arm rests (not just the right). I guess they knew that the left one would break, too. It did tonight. Fortunately I kept the left arm rest of the pair that HumanScale sent me originally, so I replaced it. At least I was not banging my arm against a sharp object.

Make sure you read the negative reviews before investing so much money in this product, they are absolutely spot on.

1) The headrest pushes your neck sharply forward into a deeply uncomfortable position. It hurts to lie back and rest your head to read or work in this chair, despite the fact that it is designed to recline. I want to remove the headrest altogether.

2) The seat padding is hard and extremely uncomfortable and bruises my behind on regular 7+ hour use. As much as the padding is insufficient, the supposedly ergonomic bowed 'bucket'-shape of the seat compresses the glutes and thighs into themselves. I recommend adding a soft cushion to try and work around the problem.

3) As mentioned by others, the arm rests are very poorly designed. Both of mine cracked after a single year of use and finally snapped off the chair completely. And I consider myself to be very careful with my possessions. Additionally, the mechanism for raising and lowering the arm rests became looser and looser through use until it began to sag and no longer support the arms horizontally, making them nigh-on useless.

4) As others have said, the chair reclines much too easily. Even the slightest backward pressure and you find yourself flying back and lying like you're in a business-class airline seat. It's really extremely impractical and very annoying.

5) The way the back sits in relation to the base means you tend to slide forward in the chair and feel like you're going to slide right off. You have to keep pushing yourself back into the seat, which becomes tiresome and stressing after a while.

6) The headrest on mine started to come off because the screws embedded within the headrest pad (!

Like the other reviewers, the chair could be great except for the darn arm rests. The adjustable metal arms of the chair have a pressure point that relies on a pair of plastic supports to hold the arm rest in place. Our Architecture & Engineering office is fairly small and we got 6 chairs used about 5 years ago. In that time we have experienced 7 arm rest failures. Given that the chairs are 5 to 10 years old, one would think Humanscale would have designed a fix by now rr at least would have made an easily obtained repair package available. You would be wrong.

There ia a joke in our office that Architects design things to look pretty and feel great. Engineers design things to function and last. The best designs are a blend of the two. This chair was designed by an architect.

BTW, there is a temporary fix. One can loosen the hex set screw holding pin that used to connect the arm pad to the frame of the chair and take the pin out. With the pin removed, push the arm pads remaining support back into place and replace the pin. The pin has a grove in it, but don't put adjust the set screw back into it. One has to offest the pin to extend well past the remaining support or the arm rest will slide off. It is not a long term fix. In our small sample, 3 of the arm rest field modified in this way eventually broke all together.

I agree with the other reviews. I have had this chair for quite some time now and LOVE it, except the arm rests breaking. This would be a pretty easy design fix. (I am an engineer, Humanscale could hire me as a consultant to redesign this thing!) If that were fixed, it would result in the best desk chair I have ever used and a 5 star rating.
