 Actulum balans

The versatile all-rounder
Peter Opsvik, 1995

Product description text block Actulum

The pendulum movement of the Actulum makes it an all-rounder chair for work, dining and leisure. Inspired by the comfort of recliners, the designer created a chair for any table or desk that provides optimal flow and relaxation. The wooden runners follow your body’s natural movements, while the flexible joint of the backrest lets you lean backwards effortlessly. This subtle activity strengthens core muscles and prevents tension in neck and shoulders.

  • Materials

    Actulum is made from top quality beech ply wood from European forests. The ply wood is treated through an iterative molding process where several veneer layers are combined and glued. Through the application of combined heat and pressure, the layers are given their characteristic shape, making our Actulum stand out from the crowd. All wooden parts are flexible and strong, ensuring a sitting experience that is never static. For a beautiful finish, our ply wood is covered with ash top veneer, manually sanded and coated with water-based, non-toxic lacquers.
