Office with pink-hued task chair

A range of office furniture by Humanscale features on Dezeen Showroom

Dezeen Showroom: office furniture brand Humanscale has listed a range of ergonomic workplace furniture on Dezeen Showroom, including a task chair made from recycled plastic bottles.

Designer Todd Bracher created the Path office chair for Humanscale, which has a hard shell made from ten kilograms of recycled materials, including 68 PET bottles.

Path is available in a range of finishes and upholstery options

The chair is designed to adjust to the weight and seated position of the user to provide support over the course of the working day without the need to adjust any manual levers, as is the case with conventional office chairs.

It is available in a range of different finishes including leather, fabric and Humanscale's recycled polyester upholstery.

The Liberty Ocean chair is also made from recycled plastic – specifically discarded fishing net debris found in the world's oceans.

Unlike Path, which features a solid backrest, Liberty Ocean has a backrest made from a taut mesh material that cushions the contours of the user's body.

The result of another collaboration between designer Todd Bracher and Humanscale, the Trea office chair features a contoured back that gently reclines.

A gently lipped front edge aims to reduce pressure points on the legs when using the seat.

The brand's two-legged Float desk is also adjustable, catering to user needs with its counterbalance mechanism that allows the surface to fluidly adjust in height.

It accommodates both seated and standing work postures and comes in two versions that allow its surface height to be adjusted either electronically or manually.

The versatile M/Connect 2 docking station contains multiple USB ports and a headphone jack to keep all cords attached to one central hub.

Another product aiming to reduce workspace clutter is the Neatcharge, which utilises magnetic resonance technology to charge phones when placed on top of it.

The device eliminates the need for phone charging cords that can cause extra clutter.
