A cool, versatile recliner

The unique design of our Gravity Balans chair provides a wide range of supportive seating options. A forward tilt accommodates the standard kneeling posture of all Varier Balans seating, while a tilt back will leave your feet on the floor in a more traditional position. You can lean back further to put the body in an ideal position for reading and sketching out ideas, or fully recline into a weightless relaxation perfect for power-napping, your body gently rocking with the rhythm of your breath.

However you choose to use it, the Varier Gravity Balans offers full body support to achieve the ultimate in versatile comfort.
