The next position is always the best

The concept of sitting in a kneeling-like position is nothing new, it can be traced back centuries, to ancient Buddhist traditions or to the traditional Japanese seiza style of sitting. The concept of modern kneeling chairs as we know them today, however, was first introduced in Norway in the 1970s.

It all started with Variable™, the original kneeling chair, designed by Peter Opsvik in 1979. The freedom of movement and variation the chair allows, is what sets Variable™ and its predecessors apart from the crowd.
