Being the founders of movement sitting since 1979, movement has been the essence of our brand and a central element in every chair we design. Our theory about sitting is very simple: if we’re allowed to move, we move!
The varying postures come from natural, intuitive movement that will increase your well being.
Varier provides people an entire lifestyle, one that inspires healthy sitting and overall wellness. We have incorporated ergonomic function that is both visually attractive and physically supportive. Through the unique combination of unparalleled quality, modern design and ultimate comfort, Varier chairs give freedom of movement to the body – just like nature intended.
Come join the movement. Sit down and move on.
Jesper B Petersen
CEO of Varier Group
Founded in 2006, Varier designs and manufactures chairs that move with your body.
With roots in the Norwegian company Stokke – renowned for the Tripp Trapp high chair – Varier was formed when the ‘Movement by Stokke’ range became an independent business.
Movement is a central design element of every Varier chair. The Varier range includes iconic chairs such as the Variable™ balans®, the original kneeling chair designed by Peter Opsvik in 1979. Varier continues to work closely with leading ergonomic designers to create chairs that rethink sitting.
Based in Oslo, Norway, Varier chairs can be found in the homes, offices, clinics and educational institutions of over 40 countries around the world. With subsidiaries in Italy and Germany, and exclusive distributors in USA, Japan and South Korea, Varier maintains a strong global presence.
All our suppliers meet our high quality and ecological standards:
Our chairs are tested and certified for durability, safety and strength at the Møbellaboratoriet (Furniture Laboratory) in Norway.
You haven't lived until you've used one of these chairs. I so look forward to experiencing my Gravity Balans every chance I get. It's an old friend who allows me to completely let go and experience the subtle movements and shifts in my own body. And the way it opens up my spine is unlike anything I've experienced in another chair. 5-stars for sure!
I have had this chair for a month. I got it to replace a chair I have sat in for years. My work requires me to spend hours a day facing a client and attending carefully. The change was immediate. I became aware of some ways that I was holding my neck and back that contributed to a chronic discomfort. The idea that the human body is designed to move really makes a lot more sense to me now. Even though I still spend frequent periods of an hour being present with counseling clients, the chair allows and encourages me to move and shift position frequently. Best thing I have done for my body in a long time.
