Variable™ balans®

Peter Opsvik, 1979

The Variable is an instantly recognizable design icon. First introduced at the Scandinavian Furniture Fair in Copenhagen in 1979, Variable was one of the first prototypes derived from the balans concept, by Hans Christian Mengshoel. As its name suggests, the chair allows for variation in all kinds of different positions. Its curved runners allow for gentle rocking motions while a tilted seat enables an open hip angle. The two cushions beneath the seat can be used to rest your shins, one foot, both, or neither by placing your feet on the ground. You can also turn around or sit sideways if you so, please. The chair is designed as an open construction, free of mechanical adjustment parts. It is lightweight and can easily be moved around.

The Variable is available in a natural or black finish and a wide range of upholstery fabrics and colors. The wooden runners are made from layers of beech and ash veneer. You can also purchase a padded backrest for added comfort.
