The Varier Multi Balans is based on the same principles as the original Peter Opsvik balans designs. The position created by all kneeling chairs increases the angle between the upper body and thighs. the Multi balans lets the user select the appropriate angle for his or her body.


Small and Functional: the Varier Multi Balans.

At the highest setting, the back and thighs are nearly at the same angle as when standing, drastically reducing strain and pressure. And, at its lowest setting, the chair can be used as a child's chair and work station.

Designed to be portable, the Varier Multi Balans is light enough to carry between work areas. The Multi can also be collapsed allowing for a minimal footprint when being transported or when not in use.

Humans were created to move, not to sit still.

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 Multi Balans helps to achieve just that. Height-adjustable seats place the body in a seated, kneeling 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 Multi Balans 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.
