Varier Furniture

Varier Home & Office Chairs

Designing groundbreaking furniture for decades, Varier are 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 company.

They specialise in furniture that feels natural and uplifting to use...

The Balans Concept:

At the very beginning of 1976 Hans Christian Mengshoel (1946) initiated a study that set out to answer how we could sit in more balanced and ergonomic ways. Through observation and research, Mengshoel found that a seat which was tilted slightly forward, encouraged a natural posture which provided greater mobility and relieved unwanted pressure while seated.

The idea of shin support was introduced to keep the user from sliding off the seat while simultaneously maintaining an open hip angle. With this, Mengshoel initiated the concept of the kneeling posture in Norway and set the mark for a truly experimental time in Norwegian design history.

Shortly after Peter Opsvik designed and devloped what was to become the first widely used and sold kneeling chair, the Varier Variable. This was the start of the Varier design journey and they now have one of the most incredible product collections in the world...

Tell me about kneeling chairs.

We have supplied thousands of kneeling chairs since 1987. The best are fantastic BUT it's important to choose one that matches the length of time you will be using it per day.

Our store staff are able to offer great advice on-line, by telephone and by message.

They work immediately to improve posture, stimulate movement, and keep joints and muscles active while sitting. There are dozens of different makes and models of kneeling chair... so which one is right for you?

Kneeling Chairs

One of Our All Time Favourites

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 key to all good chairs is movement, forwards-and-backwards, side-to-side, up-and-down, the more movement the better. We call this active sitting. Once you achieve active sitting your core muscles will become stronger and you will find your posture will improve overnight, joints will be less stiff, and you will become more focused and have higher concentration levels.

It's an incredible, compact multi purpose stool that lets the body move freely. The perfect chair for home working, ironing, cooking, helping with homework, painting - any activity where movement is important.

Easy to use, portable, and with a gas lift, the curved base allows the Move to adopt a tilting angle that follows your body's differing positions.

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.

Leaning forward, Gravity can be used as a kneeling chair. Shift your weight slightly backwards for an upright position, placing your feet on either the floor or shin cushions for variation. To assume a reclined position, gently push away from the ground.
