Ergonomic stool

Humanscale, manufacturer of the award-winning Freedom chair designed by Niels Diffrient, now offers the versatile Freedom Saddle seat, also by Diffrient. The Saddle is available in a full range of colors and textiles, including two antimicrobial textiles for healthcare, lab, and clean-room applications.

The Saddle is designed as a more comfortable alternative to traditional stools. The unique triangular shape of its cushion allows users to position themselves along the flat edge and sit as they would on a normal stool, or straddle the corner and sit as they would in a saddle. The latter position puts the lumbar region of the spine into a healthier posture by rotating the pelvis forward. The Saddle's small size and light weight make it easy to move and even easier to tuck under a desk when not in use.

Rotating tables may be specified on the outside leg of a pallet (left or right) or mounted on the pallet. Pallet-mounted tables may be specified instead of a seat cushion and are offered in granite, glass, wood, and solid-core plastic.
