Celebrating 40 Years of Movement
Movement is a beautiful word. We move physically, we can be moved emotionally, and we form movements for societal change.
Since the 1979, Norwegian industrial designer, Peter Opsvik, has developed an approach to sitting designed to free the human body with movement.
The Varier Variable Balans kneeling chair - with its 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.
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.
Worried about sitting all day without a backrest? Take a look at our all time favourite chair, the Actulum.
Parent Tip: it's a great homework chair for children ... among other things, it keeps energy and concentration levels high.
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.

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.
