Since our start in 1983, Humanscale has built a solid reputation—and amassed an impressive trophy collection—as a design and innovation leader. Our mission to develop high-performance ergonomic office tools that solve functional problems as simply and elegantly as possible was notably recognized by the design community in 2004 when we were named by I.D. magazine as one of ten “best companies” worldwide that “help push design forward.”

 Humanscale made its first significant mark as an innovation pioneer in the late 1990s with the introduction of high-performance articulating keyboard systems, which offer effortless one-touch adjustability while eliminating the knee-clearance issues associated with competing solutions. Today the company is the runaway leader in that product category. But it was Humanscale’s entry into the task seating market that truly turned heads.
