The iconic Ekstrem statement chair challenges conventional furniture, while still providing unparalleled comfort. A throwback to the eccentric 80s, the unexpected geometrics allows you to sit forward with feet on the ground, sideways with legs calmly placed on the armrests, or completely backward with the front of the torso against the chair’s back. The Varier Ekstrem is an ideal piece to spice up any interior.
Varier’s Ekstrem is an open framework constructed of fabric-covered foam over a steel frame. The chair consists of two identical mirror-facing steel frames which are covered by polyurethane foam. This provides a soft support layer covering all surfaces of the chair. A woolen knitted fabric is then manually fitted to the intricate cylinder forms. Finally, the two parts are carefully assembled together resulting in an extraordinarily eye-catching piece of furniture.

The pendulum movement of Actulum makes it an all-rounder chair for work, dining, and leisure. Inspired by the comfort of recliners, the designer created a chair for any table or desk that provides optimal flow and relaxation. The wooden runners follow your body’s natural movements, while the flexible joint of the backrest lets you lean backward effortlessly. This subtle activity strengthens core muscles and prevents tension in the neck and shoulders. See Actulum in action!
