Description

varier gravity balans

Experience the incredible lightness of zero gravity with Varier Gravity™ Balans®. Fully recline and relax into zero gravity weightlessness as the chair becomes one with your breathing. Varier Gravity™ Balans® chair design also encourages active sitting, leaning forward to actively work, the pelvis tilt forwards which keeps the spine in its upright, dynamic posture and the body balanced. This subtle activity strengthens core muscles and prevents back and shoulder tension.

SPECS



Backrest


Padded Backrest

The Gravity™ Balans® kneeling chair includes a backrest in its design. The backrest features the same foam padding and fabric as the seat and knee pads. The backrest and adjustable neck-rest supports your upper body and keeps it perfectly cradled. It does a lot of the work for you, in terms of sitting up straight. This makes it easier to take a break from your work and relax for a few minutes. Having a backrest is pretty unique for a kneeling chair and it helps quite a bit to help you stay in an upright posture. Mix up your seating position by either kneeling, sitting, leaning, or lying down.




Optional Soft Tape

Avoid scratches on your hard floors by using soft tape. Protect your chair and floor surfaces with this soft tape that applies to the runners of the Gravity™ Balans®. The color of the soft tape is a beige, similar to that of the wooden frame. To apply, you just attach the tape to the bottom of the runners to protect the base and your floor.

Build Quality


Build Quality

It is without question that Varier makes the highest quality kneeling chairs. The Gravity™ Balans® chair was designed by Peter Opsvik. Each chair is made from the finest in sustainable materials, hand built and inspected in Varier Furniture, Norwegian workshop outside Ålesund on the west cost of Norway. It is made from good quality beech plywood. This makes the frame light and strong. Molding the wood together increases its durability and reduces the chances for the wood to split. It also limits the amount that the wood expands and shrinks. The wood is finished with an ash veneer. It is sanded by hand and sealed with a clear lacquer. To protect the base on hard floors, Varier offers a soft tape option that's attached to the bottom of the runners. The seat, backrest, and knee padding are made from high quality polyurethane foam.



Movement

Peter Opsvik said this about the Gravity™ Balans®: “It is not a chair, it is a way of life”.  Traditionally people surround themselves with one kind of furniture for resting and another kind of furniture for performing activities. The Gravity™ Balans® is both highly conceptual and highly functional. It can be used in four different positions (as a kneeling chair, rocking chair, recliner, and a zero gravity chair). It supports the back and the neck while continuously promoting flow and movement in countless positions. The Gravity™ Balans® is a great statement piece for Scandinavian design connoisseurs but what usually sells it the most to people that don’t know about it and people that know about it alike is the fact that it is incredibly comfortable. When lying in “resting” position you actually feel weightless. Perfect for you and your thoughts.

FEATURES


Upholstery and Frame




Upholstery & Frame

The frame on the Gravity™ Balans® is a natural ash finish with a clear lacquer. The fabric is recycled polyester and is available in black only. The fabric is recycle polyester, called Revive. Revive is a vibrant upholstery textile made from post-consumer recycled polyester (PET). Its main focus is to reduce environmental impact, both in production and natural resources. The efficient production of creating fabric from recycled water bottles uses less energy while dramatically decreasing CO2 emissions. Revive is inspired by the textures, colors and materials of harbors and fishing boats. It features subtle chevron-like shapes, but appears to be solid when viewed from a distance.
 



Seat Comfort

There are a few reasons why the Gravity™ Balans® has a very comfortable seat. The first is that it features a large seat and it is a normal rectangle. There are no awkward cutouts, so you have a large sitting surface. It is the closest in size to a normal office chair compared to other chairs. It also has a good amount of padding. The padding is high quality polyurethane. It holds its shape well and doesn’t bottom out. The recycled polyester fabric is also comfortable to the touch. The seat on the Gravity™ Balans® has a slight forward slope. The angle is closer to a normal office chair. The seat gives plenty of space and offers supportive padding.



Seat Comfort


Knee Pad Comfort



Knee Pad Comfort

The Gravity™ Balans® can actually function as a kneeling chair, which is among four different positions. The knee pads feature the same padding and fabric as the seat, so they are also going to be high-end. They are thick enough to provide good support for multiple hours. It makes a big difference to have the knee pads separated from each other. By having your legs angled slightly outward, compared to close together and straight forward, it could be a more comfortable experience. The flexible frame also makes a big difference in being able to move your knees around while sitting.




Range of Motion

The Varier Gravity™ Balans® chair performs in four (4) different positions depending upon the mood and the task. Lean forward and the chair functions like a traditional kneeling chair. Lean back a notch and it's a traditional 'hangin out' kind of chair. Back again and it's the ideal position for reading or watching video. All the way back and it's zero gravity. Take a nap, meditate or rest. It will cradle you in a position of near weightlessness. Previously marketed under the Stokke brand, this Varier chair is the result of evolved branding and is the original style and model.

Ergonomics

Ergonomics

The Varier Gravity™ Balans® is one of the most unique reclining chairs on the market. This kneeling chair also functions as a weightless recliner, giving you an ergonomic way to work and relax. The Varier Gravity ergonomic chair is designed to accommodate a beneficial power nap into your work day. Power naps have been proven to increase productivity, boost energy levels, and recharge your brain. The Gravity™ Balans® lets you nap while feeling absolutely weightless thus giving you the most beneficial sleep possible, yet also functions as a kneeling chair which further boosts productivity and concentration while you work. When upright, the chair tilts the pelvis forward, encouraging an upright, neutral spine, which activates and strengthens abdominal and back muscles.





Warranty

For the Varier Gravity™ Balans®, the wood frame is covered for seven years. The foam, fabric, labor and shipping are covered for five years. Normal wear and tear are not covered. A warranty is only included on chairs purchased from an authorized dealer.
