Variable is made from top quality ash 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

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.
