Wouldn’t it be nice to have an office chair that automatically adjusted to your body, without the need for manual tuning – a chair that just gets who you are?

The tri-panel construction of Schiavello’s ‘Liberty Mesh’ chair by Neils Diffrient features an intelligent reclining mechanism that automatically provides the correct degree of support for any user.

Removing the need for tension springs and recline locks creates a streamlined aesthetic and means the task chair has significantly fewer parts. The result is a simplified manufacturing process and far less materials.

Using more than 50% recycled materials and with around 95% of parts fully recyclable, the ‘Liberty Mesh’ is an Environmental Choice product awarded by Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA).

The form-sensing mesh back moulds to the shape and contours of the user’s back while providing superior, self-adjusting lumbar support. With generous proportions, the seat of the ‘Liberty Mesh’ maximises contact, avoiding pressure points.

Diffrient’s ‘form following function’ approach, combined with his knowledge and application of architectural and engineering practices has assured the ‘Liberty Mesh’ is an elegant, functional, and ergonomically superior task chair.

‘Liberty Mesh’ is available throughout Australia and New Zealand from Schiavello.

Finally there’s a chair that knows who you are, the moment you sit down.
