Take ergonomics to the next level with the Varier Move, which combines the best in 360° movement and seat flexibility while you work. The slightly 'graded' disc base allows you to create the most optimal seating angle for your work level. This sit-stand positioning increases the angle between your upper and lower body which improves your concentration and focus at the same time lessening the pressure on your spinal column. The Move™ keeps your back and abdominal muscles active at all times and prevents tension in the neck and shoulder regions. Ideal for designers and drafters, this is the crucial stool for the office or at home. 

Active sitting improves your circulation and boosts oxygen levels in your blood while helping you concentrate and stay focused longer. Try it once and you may never go back to traditional chairs again.

Varier Move Resources:


  • Seat Size: 15"W x 15"D 
  • Seat Height Range: 22"-32.25" with medium gas lift
  • Weight: 13 lbs.
  • Rated for 250 lbs. weight capacity


Optional Rubber Base Pad

Optional Rubber Base Pad

The Move™ is a great product on it's own, but adding a rubber base pad can provide added stability. The rubber sole also protects base and floor when used on hard surfaces. The rubber base pad comes in black. 

Build Quality

The Move™ is a standing stool that is designed in Norway and made in Poland. It features a saddle shaped seat design with a rounded base. The wooden base and seat pan are made of beech plywood. The base also features an ash veneer top. It is then coated with a water-based lacquer for a durable and non-toxic finish. The cylinder is made by Stabilus GmbH, who has a track record for providing good quality products. The seat cushion is made from combustion modified high resilient (CMHR) polyurethane foam. This means that it has fire retardant properties. The upholsteries are sourced in Europe and are high quality. Overall, the Move™ is a higher-end standing chair with premium components throughout the unit.



Build Quality



Wobble chairs will naturally have less stability compared to standing chairs with fixed bases but the Move feels more stable than other wobble chairs. The base on the Move is wider than the seat and the majority of the weight of the chair comes from the base. This provides a nice anchor point for the chair and you never feel like the seat is top heavy. The flat section of the base also helps to add to the stability because you can use the chair without having to hold it. For people that will be using the Move on a hard or slippery surface, it is recommended to get the rubber sole for the base.

Upholstery Options

Three Upholstery Options

The Move™ offers one of the widest color selections available on a standing chair. There are 3 seat fabric colors available; black, gray, or blue. The choices are available in a fabric family called Revive. Revive is made from 100% recycled polyester. All of the upholstery options are good quality and built to last.

Seat Comfort

The seat on the Move™ is moderately padded and features a pronounced saddle shape. The seat is triangular so it has three points that stick up a few inches from the flat part of the seat. The upholstery is Varier's Revive fabric. Revive is a vibrant upholstery textile designed by Georgina Wright, and is 100% recycled polyester. The saddle seat supports an upright, dynamic posture, and keeps the body balanced, which strengthens core muscles and prevents back and shoulder tension.

Seat Comfort

Range of Motion

Range of Motion

The Move™ chair has a 360° swivel seat which increases movement while sitting. With your feet placed on the floor it's easy to balance, tilt, pivot, or rotate 360°. The motion on the Move™ chair is produced by a base with a rounded bottom. The rounded bottom makes the chair wobble in any direction you’d like. The wobble on the Move™ is a bit different than typical wobble chairs because there is a flat section on the bottom of the base. The flat section on the bottom of the base of the Move™ can be used like a standard stool, in the fully upright position, without you having to balance it there.

Ergonomics & NEAT Certified

Like most standing chairs on the market, the Move™ has a different set of ergonomic principles than a standard ergonomic chair that is meant to be used for 8-12 hours per day. There are no arms or backrest. You will not have a lumbar support system. The idea behind the Move™ is to keep you active while working. By continually moving, you are engaging muscles and therefore burning energy. The goal is to strengthen your core muscles, increase circulation and reduce tension in the head neck and shoulders.

One thing that helps to set the Move™ apart from some other chairs is that it is NEAT™ Certified. NEAT™ stands for non-exercise activity thermogenesis. It is a certification from the Mayo Clinic. The certification is given to products that increase energy used above a standard baseline.




5/7 Year Warranty


The Move™ includes a seven year warranty on the wooden components and a five year warranty on the mechanism and cylinder. A warranty is only included on chairs purchased from an authorized dealer.
