Perfect Poise and Balance

The Varier Variable Balans - The original, the most ergonomic and the best. Designed by legendary ergonomic designer Peter Opsvik. Varier kneeling chairs are unique in being perfectly angled to prevent knee pressure, with lots of movement built in to trigger your balance reflex and keep your core strong. They also use materials that are designed to last decades.

Varier kneeling chairs (Variable, Variable Plus, Thatsit and Wing) are the best, and we have tested thousands of kneeling chairs over the last 35 years. To read more about the value of Movement when sitting Click Here.

Variable is made from top quality beech ply wood from European forests. The ply wood is treated through an iterative molding process where several veneer layers are combined and glued. Through the application of combined heat and pressure, the layers are given their characteristic shape, making our Variable stand out from the crowd. All wooden parts are flexible and strong, ensuring a sitting experience that is never static. For a beautiful finish, our ply wood is covered with ash top veneer, manually sanded and coated with water-based, non-toxic lacquers.

Best-Selling Kneeling Chair

This offers almost perfect design and function. The Variable's outstanding qualities are only exceeded by those of the Actulum or Thatsit, but the Variable wins on price so it's our best-selling kneeling chair. It fits anyone from 7 years upwards. All chairs come with a 7-year warranty.
 

We have thousands of clients who use it for all day office work. Worried about sitting all day without a backrest? Simply add one below or take a look at our all time favourite chair, the Actulum. The runners allow the body's movements to totally control the chair. It can be used just about anywhere, as it's small, strong and very easy to handle.

Parent Tip: it's a great homework chair ... keeps energy levels high.

Have used one of these for 27 years and it is the very best piece of furniture for the office environment I have ever used. Particularly if you have any back issues. Was recommended initially by my physiotherapists after a spinal disk issue. Thoroughly recommend to anyone. This was a second chair after donating mine to my friend who is also now a fan.

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff can talk you through all the options and help customise the chair to fit you and your needs.
