Smart Ocean Chair by Humanscale

In 2016, Humanscale began a partnership with Bureo - an emerging venture developing innovative solutions to prevent ocean plastic pollution. Using their incredible NetPlus recycled plastic, the Diffrient Smart Ocean Chair was born.

Featuring the same timeless design and functionality as the Diffrient Smart Chair, the Smart Ocean offers form-sensing, mesh technology to instantly adjust to and move with every unique user. There is no need for training, instructions, or manual adjustments. Humanscale's weight-sensitive, mechanism-free recline, automatically adjusts to the body weight of each sitter to provide a perfect recline, providing the correct amount of tension for their shape.

With its unmatched 15 year warranty, the Smart Ocean Chair by Humanscale is a smart choice for your home or office task chair.
