We are created to move, not sit still !
This reflects Varier's sitting philosophy.
They have always focused on developing chairs that by letting you move provide well-being. When you move, you feel good. Both physically and mentally. As long as your body has a choice, it will choose movement over inactivity. Also when sitting.
That’s why Varier have made its mission to develop chairs based on the movement philosophy. These unique sitting solutions encourages dynamic and active sitting positions, which in turn provide maximum comfort and well-being while seated.
Thatsit™ balans® is based on the concept of Variable™balans®, but has the adjustable height knee pads as an additional feature. By adding an adjustable backrest, Thatsit™balans® is a versatile chair that can be used at home or at the office. This chair is ideal for people who have to work at a table for long periods of time.
The backrest is adjustable in height and depth, and the leg cushions can be adjusted so that the distance between the seat and leg cushions is suitable for children from approx. 10 years as well as adults.
When you sit on a Thatsit™ 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. This balans® concept was developed by designer Peter Opsvik and Hans Chr. Mengshol.
Back rest can also be used as support for the chest when sitting the other way around.
The runners also function as support for the feet.
