Humanscale introduces the Path task chair, the world’s most sustainable task chair for both commercial and home offices. Designed by Todd Bracher and the Humanscale Design Studio, the Path chair is composed of nearly twenty-two pounds of recycled content, which includes ocean plastic (a majority being reclaimed fishing nets), post-consumer plastic bottles, and post-industrial material.
Path joins 25 other Humanscale products in being recognized by the International Living Future Institute’s Living Product Challenge (LPC) as certified climate, water and energy positive. Each Path purchased it estimated to remove 6 kg of CO2e from the atmosphere, replenishes 15 gallons of water, and generate 23 kWh of energy.
In line with the brand’s commitment to healthy materials, Path is toxin-free and comes with transparency labels from both Declare, provided by the International Living Future Institute, and the Health Product Declaration® (HPD) Collaborative. Additionally, the chair’s aluminum components are made from 100% post-consumer or post-industrial waste and its 3D-knit textile approach results in zero-waste manufacturing and provides the product with consistent quality
The chair also introduces several new elements of seating technology, using the sitter’s weight and form to automatically adjust without the need to operate complicated manual controls.
Path’s Gravity Mechanism uses ‘virtual pivot points’ for balance and support. Its Auto-Adjusting Technology™ responds uniquely to any sitter’s bodyweight, creating a Universal Counterbalance™ to support them in any position.
Designed in collaboration with Todd Bracher Studio, Path’s minimal silhouette and streamlined technology challenge industry standards of virtually complex mechanisms that require manual adjustment.
All Path chairs have a 15-year warranty and come in 32 colorways, 3 textiles (3D knit, Lotus and chrome free leather), and four finishes
