Textile Design Exclusively Developed for Humanscale

Our chairs redefine industry standards, so it’s essential that our textiles do, too. Just as the chair’s recline mechanism allows sitters to change from posture to posture without the use of locks or levers, the cushion must also facilitate freedom of movement.

All of Humanscale's textiles are crafted specifically to enhance our products, and we make it a priority to partner with talented and innovative designers.

Bob King

Founder and CEO

Nobody else makes what our chair designs need, so we’ve created them ourselves. We use two types of textiles: mesh and upholstery. To develop them, we partnered with some of the most respected textile designers in the world who worked closely with our product design team to create fabrics that perfectly complement the functionality.

TEXTILES
 

Monofilament Stripe

Made specifically for our tri-panel, mesh-backed chairs, Monofilament Stripe has an elastic composition that achieves strength through its distinctive weave structure to provide unmatched support. Its classic stripe pattern is available in various striking colors.
