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 is the kind of chair that quickly grows on you. After you’ve sat on it for a few days, you’ll never want to go back to your old way of sitting. Designed by Peter Opsvik in 1979, Variable balans is the original kneeling chair. A Varier classic, the seat gently tilts the pelvis forward and encourages a natural, dynamic and upright spine. The muscles in the abdomen and back engage to keep the spine upright and the body balanced, which strengthens core muscles and prevents back and shoulder tension. The angle between the upper and lower body increases, greatly improving circulation. As the body moves from an active to a relaxed posture, the flexible runners respond with a gentle pendular motion.
Thatsit balans is the ideal solution for an active mind and a strong posture. Due to the runners, the chair follows your body movements. When leaning forward to actively work, the pelvis tilts forwards which keeps the spine in its upright, dynamic posture and the body balanced. This subtle activity strengthens core muscles and prevents back and shoulder tension. The open posture enables deep breathing and with an open angle between upper and lower body circulation and oxygen supply is improved. When moving backward, the backrest offers support and invites to pleasant stretching during your long working hours. Variation is key: place your feet also in front, in between, next to and on the kneepads, whatever feels most comfortable – this ensures the utmost of movement and an even better circulation from tip to toe.
