Humanscale Smart Ocean office chair


The most sustainable chair in the world.

Smart Ocean embodies the commitment to sustainable manufacturing and incorporates almost 2 pounds of recycled fishing net. Featuring the same Form-Sensing Mesh Technology and transparent functionality as the Diffrient Smart chair, Smart Ocean instantly adjusts to each unique user – as if each chair was made for them. Smart Ocean has a timeless beauty that’s universally relevant in any workspace with an aesthetic driven by functionality.

Smart Ocean utilises material from discarded fishing nets that have been collected in an effort to develop innovative solutions to prevent ocean plastic pollution. The nets are transformed into plastic pellets and then used to manufacture Smart Ocean chairs. Smart Ocean is the first-ever ergonomic chair to be built with recycled net. It is also certified by the International Living Future Institute to the full Living Product Challenge — meeting the most rigorous sustainable manufacturing criteria to date.
