Life around the table
Family life has changed drastically over the years, yet one constant remains - the dining table. More than just a place to enjoy meals, the dining table has evolved into much more. At the core of many daily activities, the table has become a homework station, a desk for preparing bills, a family meeting location, and, most importantly, a place to catch-up and enjoy the company of others. A table is more than just a table and a chair is more than just a chair.
Curved runners facilitate varying positions while seated. As you rock forward or back the runners allow the chair to tilt with you and provide support throughout the movement. While sitting still chair rests in a natural position, allowing the body to find its own, natural equilibrium.
The flexible back rest and sloped seat increase the angle between the thighs and upper body. This increased angle allows for fuller, deeper breathes, leading to an increased concentration and sense of well-being.
"I believe that the spine is happiest when it can adopt the natural curvature that it has when we stand upright" -Peter Opsvik
No scientific evidence supports the notion that the "correct" sitting posture is upright, at a right angle. In fact, studies are now revealing that the body operates best when its form is allowed to remain open and fluid.
The Varier Actulum helps to achieve just that. Forward-sloped seats on a rocking sled base support the body in a seated, natural position. This allows the angle between the thighs and torso to increase, allowing the body to naturally adopt the same spine curvature as when standing, relieving pressure from the vertebrae and letting you breathe more deeply and freely.
The Actulum promotes constant natural movement, keeping the back and abdominal muscles active at all times. While sitting, the user is actually strengthening the core muscles of the abdomen and back while preventing tension in the neck and shoulders.
This "active sitting" improves circulation and oxygen levels, boosting energy, concentration, and overall well-being.
