Designing groundbreaking furniture since 1959 Peter Opsvik Is passionate about active sitting, and so are we.

Humans weren't designed to sit still for 8, 10, 12 hours a day and there is no one who designs furniture that allows us to move quite like this man.

He specialises in furniture that feels natural and uplifting to use...

Dream design

"One of the most common constraints on product development is that people think too conventionally.
When we dream, these kinds of checks are switched off, and thoughts, ideas and experiences mingle freely without being overridden by restrictions or conventions.
Often when I wake up early in the morning, I find that I can tap this creative capacity that is released during dreaming. I lie in bed; half awake, and think through the difficulties that need to be resolved in the course of the day. Often, I go back to sleep and let my dreams work on this reality.
The result can be a burst of creativity that often results in imaginative and unexpected connections between stored experiences. Indeed, very often the idea for new solutions is born from this seemingly unstructured dream impulse."

One of Our All Time Favourites : IN STOCK

This is the best chair we've ever sat in, and the one many Backinaction staff use around our tables and in front of our computers. 

  • The Actulum is an elegant Home Office or Dining Table Chair that can reduce sitting fatigue, improve posture, increase activity levels and reduce neck and back pain.
  • It is also well suited to study and hobbies, including foot operated pursuits. The rocking movement is exceptional at maintaining alertness and develops core muscles while you sit.

Zero Gravity

This is the ultimate relaxation chair. It is extremely comfortable and gives the best possible support when reclining. The Gravity recliner meets almost every seating requirement without strain.

Popular For Sit-Stand Working

One of the most unusual office chairs out there - this is an all time favorite for many of our team.
In our own offices and showrooms this is the most commonly chosen chair.

It pairs beautifully with sit to stand desking (something all our staff have and we strongly recommend) and can help increase energy, boost productivity and reduce back pain.

This is a best seller for us so we hold some models and colours in stock to ensure we can get chairs our super speed.
We recommend a really hard wearing fabric on this like Comfort+ or Leather as this is a chair you will have for many years. Its looks wonderful in bold colours but we suggest avoiding the really pale ones.

Perfect Poise and Balance

The original and the best (without breaking the bank)!

The Varier Variable Balans kneeling chair - with it's perfectly balanced curved wooden runners - triggers your balance reflex. This helps naturally stack the spine over the pelvis - meaning neck carriage also improves and shoulder stress can be dramatically reduced. Plus pulse rate and breathing are elevated, driving greater circulation and extra oxygenation.

Over time you will learn to vary the position of the chair to exactly match the task... writing, reading, thinking, while the shin pads prevent the hips from sliding forwards. We have thousands of clients who use kneeling chairs for all day office work.

Stokke® Tripp Trapp®

Our favorite chair of all time - The children's chair that grows with the child.

Why do we love it so much? Well because its beautiful and gives perfect support at every stage of your childs development.

Tripp Trapp

Kneeling Chair with Backrest

The absolute best kneeling chair we have ever found for full 7hr+ days of working.

We believe the Thatsit is the ultimate kneeling chair because it allows the most movement and offers the greatest support. Like the Variable kneeling chair its curved wooden runners encourage movement and trigger the users balance reflex. However, the Thatsit's greater functionality is provided by a wider seat and an upholstered backrest that is adjustable in depth and height, and has a unique shape that is designed to act as a shoulder rest. In addition, the balancing leg supports are adjustable to sit almost any height of person (5ft to 6ft6in)

The Hag Creed

There is nothing else quite like it... The HAG Creed is based on two of our most loved originals: the H04 and H05.

These two chairs were both so wonderful we could never really choose which we liked best. Now we don't have to:
The HAG Creed is a beautiful hybrid of the two.
