Kneeling

Variety makes life interesting. On a Varier kneel chair, your body is constantly encouraged to move. Place your weight firmly on the forward sloping seat, and one or both of your lower legs on, in front of, between, or beside the shin pads to vary your sitting position and find the ideal balance point for your body.

Variable™ balans®

The original kneeling chair

Variableʼs unique design and functionality make it an icon that is instantly recognizable. Throughout its 40 years of history, the gentle tilting motion and open angle sitting posture have remained constant. The sophisticated kneeling design provides optimal comfort while gently switching between kneeling and the more traditional posture. The Variable fits in nicely with all interiors, especially accompanied with a desk. 

Variable is made from top quality beech plywood from European forests. The plywood 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 plywood is covered with ash top veneer, manually sanded and coated with water-based, non-toxic lacquers.

Thatsit™ balans®

The adjustable kneeling chair

Thatsit is a statement piece; it consists of bold, contrasting shapes that exude movement. It’s classic, artful design supports your body like no other chair. From the concave backrest to the rounded runners, the Thatsit creates balance in all postures. Its dynamic positioning offers a seamless transition that makes constant motion basically undetectable. It defines any space with modern elegance and fits brilliantly in a work environment.

Wing™ balans®

Combining movement with mobility

Wing is a special exception to the Varier collection being the only kneeling chair with wheels. Designed in the early 80s, shortly after the Variable, the Wing has the same kneeling concept, but with an upgraded rock and roll. It gives you the option to glide effortlessly as you sit on the cloud-like cushions. The special design and functionality evoke sensibility, you can use it in any workspace and as a primary work chair.
