Product Description

The classic Balans Knee Chair caused a sitting revolution. In 1979, Varier launched a sitting revolution that spread throughout Europe and the USA with the groundbreaking Variable balans. The chair reflected the playful spirit of the 1970's with simple, dynamic, and ergonomic design. The chair is still very popular today, especially amongst chiropractors, students and people who need relief from traditional sitting.

This unique sitting concept allows an open angle between your thigh and the upper part of your body, so it is easier to retain the natural curvature of the lumbar region. Active sitting allows a free flow of energy so you can pay full attention to your homework or studies. The chair is especially good when you have activities on the table in front of you, offering more comfort than traditional chairs.

When you sit on a Variable balans you'll use the wooden runners to distribute your body weight. This automatically straightens up and balances the spine properly over the pelvis. Using the shape of the runners the body weight will regulate the position of the chair and the knee pads will prevent the body from sliding forwards. Variable balans was the first product to be produced based on this principle.
