Variér Furniture AS
Variér® - the tradition continues
Variér® is the global leader in Human Design – the fusion of aesthetically pleasing design and knowledge of what is good for the human body (ergonomics).
Formerly known as Stokke, Variér® became its own company in 2006, when the Movement by Stokke collection of seating was separated from the juvenile collection of strollers, cribs and high chairs currently manufactured by Stokke. Since that time the company has undertaken a fantastic journey. Variér® is proud to continue offering the same outstanding iconic designs, quality and sustainable materials, while introducing fresh innovative designs paired with the latest fabric choices from popular vendors such as Kvadrat and Gabriel. We continue to grow our presence globally; today you can purchase the award winning seating collection in 36 different countries across the world.
Variér's success is embodied in a philosophy which we call: A Human Idea. This is the concept of merging the knowledge of what is good for the human body (ergonomics), functionally and design.
We make the human body central to design, learning it by heart. We know which positions promote relaxation and where and how to support the body. The human body is designed for motion, and should never be still for too long. We make chairs that meet all these needs and then we free our human imaginations to create bold, unconventional forms with perfect functionality
Variér Furniture's products are divided into two collections:
A symbiosis between modern design and function. This collection features numerous styles of seating from dining chairs to lounge chairs or bar stools. As with all Variér® designs, these are all built on the understanding that seating should be made for the human body; not vice versa. The pieces in our Human Design collection have won many awards; including the Good Design Award from the Norwegian Design Council.
A collection of task chairs which offer the optimal open body angle position. This collection of seating instruments has been created according to simple principles on what is best for the human body. The collection also contains the world's first kneeling chair, designed by the renowned Peter Opsvik.
Our products have been made to last. Each piece is made from the finest in sustainable materials, and is hand built and inspected in our Norwegian work shop outside Ålesund on the west coast of Norway.
The simple, yet functional designs offer solutions for any room in your home. Often times Variér® chairs can function years as a kitchen dinning chair and easily become your favourite desk chair. This being in such contrast to the use and discard society we face today, the products also attract an increasing number of value-conscious consumers.
