The professional home
Our homes used to be divided into rooms with specified functions. Today, life at home is becoming increasingly fluid. We find ourselves streaming series in the kitchen, eating in bed and working in the living room. This behavioral shift places new demands on our homes and requires us to rethink how we furnish them.
As we enter an era where an increasing number of us work from home, we will be faced with a choice of improving our home working conditions, and this can be done in a number of ways. One option is to prepare a dedicated workplace equipped with specialized office furniture. Alternatively, we can furnish our homes with dynamic furniture that suits the combined demands of both leisure and work.
The body’s natural needs remain the same, whether you are eating dinner or preparing a presentation for your next meeting. To reach forward for a second serving by the dining table constitutes the same movement as when reaching for the phone by your desk. When leaning back to stretch after enjoying a well prepared meal, you perform the same movement as when leaning back to answer an incoming call.
By designing for movement, we want our products to bring balance to everyday life – for both mind and body, at work and at home. Join us as we explore a selection of our most versatile chairs.
The Monochrome series
In Aarhus, Denmark, photographer Marianne Jacobsen often works on Variable by her dining table. Pictured here in the Oxide colorway from the Monochrome Series, Variable is a beautiful addition to her harmoniuous space.
Pattern designer Silvia Stella Osella has a dedicated workspace corner in her airy living room. Variable in natural wood, upholstered in Revive from Kvadrat fits perfectly. Adding the optional backrest provides even more flexibility, opening up for a wider range of positions.
Finding balance in the everyday can be difficult. Finding balance while seated on the other hand, does not need to be. In Alessandra’s home in Milan Variable in Stone from the Monochrome Series matches her bright blue walls.

As the name indicates, Variable encourages variation, where the kneeling posture is one of many. The curved runners allow you to seamlessly shift between positions without interrupting your creative flow.
Per Øie, 1985
Designed by Per Øie in 1984, Move is the chair in the Varier collection which allows for the widest range of movement. With its convex wooden base, a rounded seat and a height adjustable gas lift, the chair prompts you to actively find and keep your balance while still providing you with the support you need to remain comfortable. Move is the perfect companion for the height adjustable desk, or when engaging in activities where freedom of movement is essential.
Move’s wooden base is made from beech plywood, covered with an ash top veneer, manually sanded and coated with waterbased, nontoxic lacquers for a beautiful finish. The gaslift is Germanmade, empowered by highpressured gas, making the height adjustable mechanism smooth and reliable. A soft sculpted foam seat, with three identical sides, ads to the chairs ease of use.
In Franziska’s home in Germany, Move is more than just an office chair. Its lightweight properties makes it easy to move around to wherever the family may need it. Move frequents both the kitchen counter and her son’s rooms.
One for you and one for me. Move works great as an additional chair, either in the home oce or in the living room when having guests over. Pictured here in Antonia’s home in Munich.
Move is highly customizable. Choose between four di¢erent gaslifts, di¢erentiated by height and needed adjustment pressure, two seat sizes and two base sizes – and create the chair that best suits your individual needs.
