Smart Ocean


Smart Ocean is an inventive adaptation of the legendary Diffrient Smart chair and the first ergonomic task chair made with recycled fishing nets. Featuring the same timeless design and functionality as the Diffrient Smart chair, Smart Ocean (available in black frame only) offers Form-Sensing Mesh Technology to instantly adjust to and move with every unique user. There is no need for training, instructions or manual adjustments.

Using sourced materials in partnership with Bureo, an emerging venture developing innovative solutions to prevent ocean plastic pollution was born. Smart Ocean is the embodiment of Humanscale's commitment to sustainable manufacturing. Each chair incorporates almost 1kg of recycled fishing net material and is Living Product certified - meeting the most rigourous sustainable manufacturing criteria to date.

The material used to produce Smart Ocean is sourced from Net Positiva, a collection and recycling program aimed at combating the detrimental effects of discarded ocean fishing nets. These nets are transformed into recycled nylon pellets used for manufacturing.

In 2013, Bureo founded Chile's first fishing net collection and recycling program, Net Positiva. Nets are cleaned, mechanically shredded and pelletised to produce Bureo's 'NetPlus' material. These pellets are used to manufacture quality products such as skateboards, sunglasses and now - for the first time ever - an ergonomic task chair.

Smart Ocean is available in 2 base finishes - standard in Black. Black with Polished Aluminium trim available at additional cost.
