Like all of the chairs in Varier's balans family, the Wing balans opens the angle between the thighs and torso. The active sitting promoted by this posture allows deep breathing and increased energy - leading to improved concentration and higher productivity.

Instead of the static, upright position of traditional chairs, the Wing Balans allows the spine to find its natural curve. The body is encouraged to shift postures throughout the day, relieving pressure on the vertebrae and keeping energy levels high.

An adjustable lift and knee pad makes the Wing Balans an ideal option for a variety of work heights and users. The only chair with casters in the Varier Active collection, the Wing makes small work of moving around an office or migrating between work stations.

The Varier Wing Balans is the perfect instrument for the ever-changing demands of today's work places and lifestyles. Work becomes a breeze as the upright, "alert" posture promotes concentration and activity.

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.



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

Scientific evidence now supports the notion that the "correct" sitting posture is not at a right angle. Current studies are now revealing that the body operates best when its form is allowed to remain open and fluid.

The Varier Wing Balans helps to achieve just that. Forward-sloped seats on a castered base support the body in a seated, kneeling position. This allows the angle between the thighs and torso to increase, allowing the body to naturally adopt the same spine curvature as when standing, relieving pressure from the vertebrae and letting you breathe more deeply and freely.

The Wing Balans 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.

    most comfortable kneeling chair July 17, 2012
    Reviewer: Darlene from Ft. Smith, AR  
    My shins are on the bony side, so I've never found a kneeling chair that did not absolutely kill my knees and shins.  Until know that is.  The Wing Balans with the flexibility in the frame and the adjustable knee pads, has mostly alleviated my shin discomfort.  Two thumbs up for sure.

    Great office kneeling chair December 5, 2011
    Reviewer: Patricia from Iowa  
    I wanted a kneeling chair for my office but the Original Kneeling Chair (Variable Balans) was a little too short to bring to work. When I saw this chair came on wheels and with a gas lift I was hopeful it would work for me and it's perfect! If you need a kneeling chair that moves up and down, this chair will work great for you.

    Better than HAG Balans Vital May 16, 2011
    Reviewer: Erica Simpson from Lincoln, Nebraska  
    I finally bid farewell to my HAG Balans Vital kneeling chair after 18 years of service.  I nearly wept when I found out that HAG no longer manufactured the chair since this chair due to my sciatica.

    I ordered the Varier Wing Balans, sight unseen, after talking to a salesperson who explained that it was designed by the same designer and had the same patented design relative to the hip angle and chair mechanics.  I've had the chair for about 6 weeks now and let me tell you, this chair is even better than the HAG version.  I LOVE the fact that I can adjust the knee pad.  Now that I've been using my Wing Balans chair, I realize that the distance between the seat pad and knee pad with the HAG Balans was slightly too long for me.  This Wing Balans fits me like a glove.  

    And the other thing that is a vast improvement is the flexibility in the frame.  This chair is such a great design.  Kudos on such a thoughtful and beautiful design.
