Humanscale, Shaping the Future of Work and Well-Being at Milan Furniture Fair 2017

Movement is key to wellness and well-being at work and beyond, but furniture has been keeping us still for more than 50 years

Milan, Italy – As the leading designer and manufacturer of products that enhance health and wellness at work, Humanscale has always championed movement. For Milan Furniture Fair 2017, 4th – 9th April 2017 (Stand C23 C27; Hall 22), Humanscale is looking to the future and showcasing modern workspace solutions that keep people active throughout the day, enhance well-being and comfort, and encourage movement. Showcasing developments in technology and engineering, each offering is also marked by Humanscale’s core values, function, simplicity and longevity.

Product highlights include:

QuickStand Under Desk
Allowing users to seamlessly adjust between sitting and standing postures without interrupting workflow, the revolutionary QuickStand Under Desk’s innovative counterbalance mechanism is enclosed within a central column beneath the desk surface. Helping to maintain a clean visual aesthetic thanks to built-in cable management, QuickStand Under Desk allows for unobstructed views throughout an entire office when in the sit position.


Created by visionary designer Todd Bracher, Vessel is a glare-free light that evolved through challenging traditionally held views on light efficiency. Offering three optic length sizes, Vessel produces a dramatic display when hung or mounted collectively and is an elegant solution for installations far beyond the corporate environment.

Producing 1500 lux illumination, Humanscale’s Infinity LED task light boasts stunning, sleek design, optimal usability and best-of-class light output. An intuitive dimmer control customises nine levels of light, and a passive infrared occupancy sensor conserves energy.

Diffrient Smart Flex
A new version of the popular Diffrient Smart task chair, Diffrient Smart Flex has all of the functionality of the current Smart mechanism, but with the addition of a pivot point that offers additional neck and back support at the top of the backrest.

Experience these and other Humanscale innovations at stand C23 C27, hall 22 at Milan Furniture Fair 2017.

During the show, join us on our stand for drinks daily from 4pm.

Humanscale is also introducing an engaging and innovative RE:CHARGE Café concept to the Fuorisalone during Milan Design Week.

RE:CHARGE Café invites visitors to re-energize both physically and mentally. Featuring a communal table with custom, state of the art charging stations with built-in biological lighting and a lush green, air-purifying wall, made possible by the pioneering vertical agriculture specialists Vertical Field. Along with free Wi-Fi and a healthy bar offering specialised “Green Shots” for rejuvenation of body and mind, RE:CHARGE Café will support the harmonious blends of work, sociability, relaxation and recharge which are synonymous with the Humanscale brand.

Humanscale will be hosting an exclusive press breakfast with Todd Bracher at the RE:CHARGE Café (Via Solferino, 18, Brera, Milano 20121) on Wednesday 5th April 2016.
