The Thatsit balans is the ideal chair for your daily deskwork. Runners and height-adjustable kneepads promote an open and dynamic sitting position that keeps your spine in its natural curvature and allows deep breathing. The chair gives your body the freedom to find its own equilibrium which keeps your back and abdominal muscles working. While tension in back and shoulders is prevented, this ‘active sitting’ improves circulation. Therefore oxygen levels and thus concentration and creativity are increased during your work. The adjustable back rest is designed to offer full support during relaxation. With the arms on the ‘wings’ you can stretch your upper body, raise your rib cage and breathe more deeply and freely.
When lifestyle requires you to sit for a long time the freedom to move, offered by Varier is the new concept of ergonomic seating.
“Our bodies are made to move”: this is the concept that prompted the Norwegian industrial designer Peter Opsvik to question the notion that there is only one correct sitting posture. According to Opsvik, our body intuitively searches for the ideal sitting position, with the consequence that the best position is always the next one.
In 1979, Opsvik designed the Variable ™ balans®, the first chair to successfully challenge sitting habits that has now become an icon of functional design.
