Path Task Chair

The World’s Most Sustainable and Ergonomic Task Chair.

Path takes Humanscale’s ethos to the next level. Made of nearly 10 kilos of recycled ocean plastic, fishing nets, post-consumer bottles and industrial material, Path becomes part of Humanscale’s group of products recognised by the International Living Future Institute’s Living Product Challenge (LPC) as certified climate, water, and energy positive.

Path is not just a chair. It’s a sitting experience. Built with Humanscale’s patented technology, Path responds immediately to the user’s body weight and ensures proper pelvic and lumbar support the second they sit down without the need to adjust any annoying knobs.

Minimalist elegance coupled with high functionality. The future of office seating is here.

FormSense Eco Knit™.


Equally as innovative as Path’s design is the FormSense Echo Knit™, a mesh-like textile providing self-adjusting lumbar support and a tailored fit to every user, regardless of their height or weight. Each stitch is individually controlled, creating intricate and systematic patterns with targeted zones of tension. Its yarn is made with 100% post-consumer recycled polyester from upcycled plastic bottles. Since it is knit exactly to the shape of the chair, it eliminates the need for cutting or sewing, and creates zero waste.



All seats, back and arms are replaceable without the need to discard the entire chair. Unlike other brands, there is no glue used in upholstery process so the fabric won’t delaminate or wrinkle over time. Humanscale uses greaseless cylinders to ensure that dirt and grit doesn’t build up and compromise the performance of the chair .

Gravity Mechanism.


Each chair contains a mechanism that uses gravity and the sitter’s own bodyweight rather than bulky knobs and levers. As you sit, the mechanism engages. When you recline, it gently lifts, so your body becomes the counterbalance to the chair, and is firmly supported wherever it stops. This creates a custom fit chair that moves completely in sync with you.
