Humanscale Diffrient Smart Chair Fabric Descriptions

Grade 0 Fabric

Squiggle
New for 2009! Squiggle is part of Humanscale's new Movement collection and features an innovative weave that creates a modern, organic pattern available in 9 rich colors. Can be applied either horizontally or vertically to create a look that is uniquely yours. Designate horizontal or vertical when you make your fabric selection in the drop down menus. Constructed of 100% pre-consumer, recycled polyester.

Grade 1 Fabric

Vellum
Constructed from a blend of nylon, Cordura and elastic yarn, this four-way stretch textile offers a pleasing texture, while providing the extreme durability required for long-term use.

Wave
This four-way stretch textile with a three-dimensional wave pattern offers a range of brilliant colors taken from nature. It exceeds all standards for contract upholstery.

Lotus
Water repellent and easy to clean, Lotus is an ideal textile for the healthcare and hospitality environments. Its polyurethane finish with nylon backing boasts a soft texture that is pleasant to the touch while offering exceptional durability.

Grade 2 Fabric

Bridget Stripe
Composed of 78% merino wool with polyester and nylon interwoven for strength, Bridget Stripe is soft, durable and features brilliant colors. This stripe may be laid vertically or horizontally.

Ginkgo
Ginkgo reflects the delicate parallel veins of the Ginkgo biloba tree leaves. It is composed of 90% wool, a renewable fiber that offers durability, elegance and flexibility. Available in a variety of vibrant and saturated colors, Ginkgo extends the breadth of Humanscale's seating color line. Ginkgo's exceptional performance on contract textile tests and subtle sophistication will satisfy any task seating application.

Grade 3 Fabric

Sensuede
Offering style and performance, Sensuede® was developed to be the best and most luxurious engineered suede available. The faux-suede's soft touch comes from the use of breathable and wrinkle resistant recycled microfibers that are finer than a human hair but are extra-strong, resulting in a very resilient fabric. In keeping with Humanscale's philosophy of sustainable design, this material was selected because of its environmentally sensitive content and manufacturing process.

Promessa
Promessa is a high quality, breathable and wipe clean synthetic leather that looks great and has a luxurious, soft hand. Promessa ultraleather is more durable than leather and breathes better offering a great option for those who like the look of fine leather but do not wish to pay the price of true leather.

Grade 0 Leather

Vicenza
A lightly corrected, aniline dyed leather produced from European hides. It receives a special retannage that enriches the leather and tightens the grain.

Grade 1 Leather

Acqua
Acqua's combination of a special retannage and technically-advanced finishing process results in a leather that is not only water-resistant but also practical for applications that require a durable finish.

Grade 3 Leather

Cervo
Cervo is thicker than the other leathers in our collection. Specialized milling adds additional character providing a soft pebble grain texture unmatched by any other leather in its class.
