Variable Balans Ergonomic Kneeling Chair
Description
Whether you’re working from home or elsewhere, maintaining good posture and staying comfortable should be key. Originally conceived in 1979 by Peter Opsvik—a designer in MoMA’s collection who is known for his ergonomic seating innovations—the Variable Balans is a sophisticated kneeling chair that offers optimal comfort while gently switching between kneeling and a more traditional posture. The seat of this new version of Variable Balans Kneeling Chair is upholstered in fabric produced from 100% post-consumer polyester that’s made from recycled plastic bottles. Designer Shane Schneck put a modern spin on the look of the chair by selecting fresh colors for the monotone chair.  The Variable Balans Kneeling Chair measures 29h × 20w × 20"d. Weight limit: 240lbs.
Why We Chose This
The original Balans Chair was first introduced in 1979 at the Scandinavian Furniture Fair in Copenhagen as the world's first kneeling chair. The chair allows a variety of seating positions and encourages subtle movements—the user is meant to shift positions until the ideal balance point of their body is achieved. Sitting in the Balans Chair, you can choose a gentle rocking motion—thanks to the design's curved legs—and also an open hip angle, enabled by the chair's tilted seat.
Innovative Function
Innovative Function
Function plays a large role in defining good design. When designers look at an object, they don't just consider its aesthetic appearance—they should also challenge it to be more versatile, to respond to the user's need, or to achieve its purpose more elegantly. Good design has the capacity to solve problems that sometimes we didn't even know we had. This is one of the ways design touches and enriches our everyday life.
