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.

Assembly Required: Item is shipped boxed, for self-assembly

Looking for benefits of kneeling?

Head over to check out the Variable Plus, explore the ultimate kneeling chair: the Thatsit, or take a look at our all time favourite chair, the Actulum.

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 above 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.
