Humanscale's Design Philosophy
The best designs in the world are based on purpose and function. When a design solves a functional problem as simply and elegantly as possible, the resulting form will be honest and timeless.
Uncompromising performance-centric design in its purest form is at the heart of every Humanscale solution. Each of our ergonomic products is designed for maximum comfort, a long serviceable life and a minimal environmental footprint. Our simple designs have intuitive features and fewer manual controls, making them easier to use and without sacrificing a stylish aesthetic.
Humanscale's Design Studio
Established in 2002, the Humanscale Design Studio has evolved from a single designer into an ambitious, award-winning team of industrial designers, engineers and prototypists.
A hub of creativity and innovation based in New York City, the studio brings together the industry’s finest minds and thought-leaders from across the globe to design intuitive and beautiful work tools.
As the global leader in ergonomics, Humanscale has pioneered workplace design that promotes healthy movement. Our ergonomics team is involved in product design from the conception stage to ensure each creation supports the user’s posture and encourages more physical activity.
The Humanscale Design Studio abides by a Design for Environment product development process to assess environmental impacts and sustainability at every stage of product design.
