A Sustainable Approach to a Legendary Chair
An inventive adaptation of the legendary Diffrient Smart chair and the first chair made with recycled fishing nets.
A Net Positive Product
Smart Ocean is the embodiment of our commitment to sustainable manufacturing. Each chair incorporates almost 2 pounds. of recycled fishing net material and is Living Product certified — meeting the most rigorous sustainable manufacturing criteria to date.
The material used to produce Smart Ocean is sourced from Net Positiva, a collection and recycling program aimed at combating the detrimental effects of discarded ocean fishing nets. These nets are transformed into recycled nylon pellets used for manufacturing.
Custom Fit Technology
Featuring the same timeless design and functionality as the Diffrient Smart chair, Smart Ocean (available in black frame) 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.
IT'S UP TO ALL OF US TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The ever-growing deluge of plastic pollution in our oceans has a tremendous impact on human health and on the health of our natural environment.
- 8 million tons of plastic waste enter the ocean each year.
- 640,000 tons of fishing nets enter the ocean each year.
- The amount of plastic pollution in the ocean will surpass the amount of fish by 2050 if nothing changes.
- Fishing nets are identified as the most harmful form of ocean plastic pollution.
Recycling and repurposing plastic keeps it out of the ocean and helps to mitigate many environmental issues.
In addition to partnering with Bureo to protect our oceans, Humanscale is a founding partner of the Next Wave Initiative. Led by Lonely Whale, this consortium includes companies such as Dell and GM and is focused on developing a distribution web that would support the reuse and repurposing of plastic before it ever reaches the ocean.
Humanscale Smart Chair Features
Diffrient Smart is a minimal mesh task chair that is a striking addition to any modern office thanks to its linear, geometric design that easily integrates into any environment. With a unique U-shaped back and minimal lines, Diffrient Smart also features arm rests that are attached to the back of the chair, so they move with the user for dynamic support. Its brushed aluminum finish ensures Smart’s longevity, while its automatic recline support every individual that sits in it. Diffrient Smart’s revolutionary tri-panel mesh backrest offers instant support and allows the user to engage in healthy, ergonomic postures.
Ease Of Use
Featuring Humanscale’s weight-sensitive, mechanism-free recline, Smart automatically adjusts to the body weight of each sitter to provide perfect recline support. Using the laws of physics, all the user has to do is sit and the chair will provide the correct amount of tension for their shape.
Linear Visual Design
Free of manual controls, Diffrient Smart has a striking, sleek aesthetic, and its U-shaped back makes it the perfect fit for any high-design environment. With linear lines in the backrest and strong mesh for maximum support, it’s the ideal task chair for the modern, active workspace.
To ensure every person who sits in Diffrient Smart would have perfect lumbar support, Diffrient created a tri-panel mesh backrest to automatically adapt to the user’s needs. Eliminating the need for complicated adjustments and external lumbar devices, Diffrient Smart uses Form-Sensing Mesh technology for easy, ongoing comfort.
