About the Product
A Path for Every Body
Path instantly adapts to each body type straight out of the box. Most chairs are made to fit an imaginary “average” body, forcing each sitter to adjust controls until they’re comfortable. Most chairs are adjusted incorrectly, resulting in unhealthy work habits. Path is simple and body inclusive, performing effortlessly so you can too.
A Path for Everywhere
Path’s warm, versatile aesthetic is a response to rapidly evolving workspaces. Its softly rounded silhouette accents any environment – providing open, elevated simplicity. A suite of personalisation options lends Path chameleon-like adaptability, so it matches and enhances its surroundings, instead of redefining them.
Path’s unique weight compensation mechanism means that 95% of the population can sit comfortably on the chair, unlike most chairs, which only consider an overall target at the 50th percentile average weight of all genders. Humanscale considers everyone and every body when we design our seating.
Each Path contains a patented Gravity Mechanism™ that uses bodyweight rather than bulky controls. As you sit, the mechanism engages. When you recline, it gently lifts, so your body becomes the natural counterbalance, and is firmly supported wherever it stops.

This creates virtual pivot points that allow Path to move with you in complete harmony.
FormSense Eco KnitTM
Equally as innovative as Path’s design is its FormSense Eco Knit™, a mesh-like textile made from upcycled plastic bottles that conforms to the body, providing self-adjusted lumbar support and a tailored fit to every user, regardless of their height or weight. Each stitch is individually controlled, resulting in an instantly responsive experience.
