Variableʼs unique design and functionality makes it an icon that is instantly recognisable. Throughout its 40 years of history, the gentle tilting motion and open angle sitting posture has remained constant. The sophisticated kneeling design provides optimal comfort while gently switching between kneeling and the more traditional posture. The Variable fits in nicely with all interiors, especially accompanied with a desk.
Norwegian industrial designer, Peter Opsvik, is known as the foremost designer behind ergonomic seating. Drawing inspiration from Hans Christian Mengshoel’s balans® concept, Opsvik created unconventional seating solutions that emphasize movement and variation. This freedom to move defines his award-winning chairs, whether for the office, children or for leisure. Opsvik works together with seven colleagues in his Oslo-based studio, where they focus on product design as a means for solving real-life problems.
