The Varier Move stool puts your body in control, it is the ultimate in active sitting. Of all the chairs in Varier's Active collection, the Move stool provides the most positive impact on your back and core muscles. Offering 360° of movement, the Move stool will certainly have a position for you. Whether you are catching up on bills at the kitchen table or multi-tasking over breakfast, the Move stool allows your body to go wherever it feels it should be.

A blend of chair and standing support, the Varier Move stool has a graded disc base. The tilting angle created by this unique design lets the saddle follow you throughout any movement. The sit/stand body position greatly increases the angle between the upper and lower body, allowing deeper breathing, improved concentration, and relieving the pressure on the spine.

The benefits are not just for adults, as the posture, breathing, and energy enhancements of active sitting have been directly correlated with improved homework performance in adolescents. The Move stool by Varier is available in three sizes to accommodate users of any size: the standard Move, the Move II (same lift options with a smaller seat), and the Move Small (small, Move II seat coupled with a lift adjusted for the lighter weight of children).

Humans were created to move, not to sit still.

"I believe that the spine is happiest when it can adopt the natural curvature that it has when we stand upright" -Peter Opsvik

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 Move 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.

Perfect for adjustable height desk January 17, 2014
Reviewer: Eric from New York, NY  
It gives as much or as little support as you like by leaning/sitting on it by various amounts.  Perfect amount of "on-center" stability and bounce, too.  I'd use rubber mat even on floors with thin carpets or rugs so you can really tilt it without slipping if you want.

great for home use too July 13, 2012
Reviewer: Clytemnestra from Kihei, HI  
I have a small apartment, with an even smaller kitchen, where I needed an extra "bar stool" for when I have more than a couple of friends over and the Move stool proved to be just the ticket.  With the standard lift height, it's perfectly suited for this task.  

I also frequently use it with my standing height desk.

Perfect for my desk November 8, 2011
Reviewer: Jeff Bradley from Bellevue, Washington  
I bought a sit/stand desk and realized after a few weeks that my old chair didn't really make sense, I don't like sitting that low anymore. I'm able to stand most of the day but sometimes I just need to take a seat for a little while. I heard this stool was tall enough so that I could basically sit towards the edge of the chair when I needed a break, and that's exactly what it does. The base makes it so you can lean forward on it instead of just sitting on top of it. Leaning forward gives me the perfect amount of support.

I agree with the other customer, the rubber sole is helpful for hard floors.

LOVE this Chair/Stool June 15, 2011
Reviewer: The Sandman from Topeka, KS  
I bought a Move stool a few weeks ago.  It is the perfect complement to my counter height desk.  It gives me a great deal of support, has a comfortable seat and looks fantastic.  Great design.

P.S. - I highly recommend the optional rubber sole.  It really grips my hardwood floor well.
