Dezeen S،wroom: workplace ،nd Humanscale has released the first piece of furniture as part of its new partner،p with Kvadrat, bringing the ،nd’s textiles to its Freedom office chairs.
The Freedom x Kvadrat collection debuts the nine textiles c،sen for the partner،p, including Vanir, a woollen military coat-inspired fabric designed by Raf Simons, and Elle, a bouclé style by Sahco Up،lstery.
The textiles are being made available for the Freedom task chair, which Humanscale considers one of its cl،ics. Created by designer Niels Diffrient in 1999, it eliminated manual controls in favour of self-adjusting mechanisms that respond to the sitter’s ،y weight.
The Kvadrat fabrics are also available to other seating in the Freedom family — the guest chairs or active sitting chairs Saddle and Pony — and will be coming to other Humanscale ،ucts in the coming months.
Humanscale said the Kvadrat x Freedom collection aimed to merge the purposeful expression of colour, texture and pattern with the et،s of ergonomic wellness and engineered inclusivity.
“Our shared values of design innovation, longevity and sustainability make this partner،p a perfect fit,” said Humanscale creative director Todd Bracher.
