A perfectly timed power nap is a great way to jumpstart the body and increase productivity. The Gravity balans turns this short slumber into a rejuvenating relaxation period. With the legs elevated above the heart, the fully reclined Gravity balans gently rocks to the rhythm of your breathing. The back rest and adjustable neck rest perfectly cradle the body - creating a sense of weightlessness.

The Gravity Balans by Varier is certainly not limited to reclining. The unique design provides a wide range of seating options that will support the body throughout. 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. So, whether you working at a table, leaning back to enjoy a book, or fully reclining to pursue that ever-important power nap, the Varier Gravity balans offers full body support to achieve the ultimate in comfort and relaxation.

Gravity Chair: Perfect for a power nap, the body gently rocks to the rhythm of its breathing. Supported at every position, the body feels weightless - quite possibly the closest you will come to achieving zero gravity.

With a lighter recline the body is in the ideal position for reading or just relaxing and watching TV.

In a more traditional position the Gravity balans still offers the ultimate in support.

Leaning forward the Gravity takes on the characteristics of a kneeling chair.

I had two, 1983 and 1987 models - loved them!

First was a Tripos model without the gravity defying 4th position that was introduced a few years later. Enjoyed it alone for 3 years before I met my future wife. We fought over it and guests arrived way too early to grab the chair for the evening. Only solution was to buy another.

Both in continuous use for hours every day. Now I'm living in the US and my wife and daughter are still living in Norway. I have been informed my daughter has annexed one and I should not even consider asking to use it when coming home for Christmas.

Best gaming chair EVER!

A little background:
Ive had a sit/stand desk and a HAG Capisco since the late 90's for work and I LOVE THEM.
Finally decided to made the plunge for a chair at home. After a little research I settled on the Gravity Balans, and since receiving it I couldn't be happier. Ive only had it for 3 months but I have noticed a marked improvement in my back and neck and Im seeing my P.T. less!
Added bonus: I have never felt so good playing XBox. I like to rotate between on my knees when things are getting hairy and the second to last position when Im just scoping things out.

The best chair of all my life

You haven't lived until you've used one of these chairs. I so look forward to experiencing my Gravity Balans every chance I get. It's an old friend who allows me to completely let go and experience the subtle movements and shifts in my own body. And the way it opens up my spine is unlike anything I've experienced in another chair. 5-stars for sure! Review by / (Posted on 8/21/2011)
