Rocking kneeling chair Thatsit Balans by Varier encourages constant movement and good posture.


The Original Kneeling Chair redesigned

Thatsit Balans is designed with all the signature features of Varier's Variable Balans kneeling chair with enhancements for greater comfort and fit.

Forward-sloping seats on a curved wooden rocker 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 an upright posture, relieving spinal pressures and facilitating deeper breathing.

The Thatsit Balans encourages movement and supports the body through each movement made. Body and chair, action and reaction, in a cycle of continuous motion that energizes and enlivens the body and mind and helps you focus.


  • Innovative backrest design is height and depth-adjustable and can be removed if desired.
  • Backrest supports a semi-reclined offloading posture for users who sit at desks for extended periods.
  • Backrest is cut away at the shoulders to encourage an open chest "shoulders back" posture and to allow deeper breathing and periodic stretching of the upper back and arms.
  • Backrest versatility allows it to support the arms or to support the chest if the user prefers to turn the chair around from time to time. Backrest "wings" function as an arm rest in both front-facing and rear-facing sitting positions.
  • Adjustable knee pads accommodate a range of body heights.
  • Large seat and backrest for increased comfort.
  • Polyurethane foam cushions the seat and knee pads.
  • Strong and durable wood frame.
  • Wood is harvested from sustainably farmed sources. Beech and oak are native to Europe. Walnut comes from North America.
  • Handcrafted in Norway.
  • Assembly required.
  • Optional soft Floor Protection Tape is recommended for chairs that will be used on wood floors or other hard surfaces. The tape easily attaches to the bottom of the chair and helps to protect both the chair and the floor during use.

Use | Fit 

  • Fits both adults and children from about 4'3" to 5'10".
  • We do not recommend the Variable Balance for those over 5'10", those with very long legs, or those with big feet. For these individuals there may not be enough room for the legs, forcing the hips and knees to bend further than is comfortable.
  • Use of the Variable Balans kneeling chair requires a minimum 130° knee flexion range of motion (bending at the knee). This is well within the normal range of motion for a healthy knee, but those with knee pathology may have lost this freedom of motion. A knee forced to bend beyond its available range of motion could cause harm.
  • Weight capacity 250 lbs.
  • There are many different ways of sitting in the chair - toes touching the floor or not, one leg out, one leg in, using the kneepads or not, so you can move around quite a bit.

  • Thatsit Balans is not only for office use. It also works quite well for tasks like reading and studying, eating meals and watching TV.
  • Innovative backrest shape is designed to support the back and arms when reclining, and can to support the chest and arms in the reverse sitting posture.
  • One negative is that it doesn't have wheels underneath so it doesn't spin and it's not good for rolling around or fumbling through the office drawers around your desk. But it does rock, which is a health benefit, so it's a trade off.

Variér warranty

Variér Furniture offers an extended warranty to customers who register their products in the Variér product database.

The warranty is limited and covers only manufacturing defects and does not cover misuse, normal wear and tear and defects caused by exposure to sunlight. Registration gives the right to the following guarantee:

  • 7 years guarantee against fabrication faults on wooden parts.
  • 5 years guarantee against fabrication faults on the mechanism.
  • 3 years guarantee on upholstery and foam.

This requires a successfully completed registration of the product in the Variér Extended Warranty database, and that the warranty certificate is submitted together with the original receipt (proof of purchase). Once registration is completed, proof of guarantee will be sent to you via email.

The Variér Furniture Extended Guarantee is based on the following conditions:

  • Normal use
    • The product is being used for the purpose for which it is designed.
    • The product only being used indoors.
    • The product being properly maintained as described in the maintenance/user guide.
  • Original purchase receipt
    • To utilize the extended guarantee, proof of guarantee shall be submitted together with the original purchase receipt.

The Variér Furniture Extended Guarantee does not cover:

  • Any condition due to normal wear of the material (for example, colour fading and wear and tear).
  • Any condition due to the natural character of the materials (for example, colour differences in wood, leather or fabric).
  • Any condition due to influences from external factors such as sun or light, temperature, dampness or pollution.
  • Other damages (for example, damage made during fitting, damage to the floor, other furniture, etc.).

Under the Extended Guarantee Variér Furniture will:

  • Replace or repair the defective part or product.
  • Cover normal transportation costs for the replacement part or product from Variér to the retailer where the product was purchased. The purchaser is responsible for covering the return costs to the retailer.
  • Reserve the right to replace defective parts in colors that are available at the time of the claim.
  • Reserve the right to deliver a replacement product in instances where the product in question is no longer in production at the time of the claim. This product shall be of the same quality and value.

Process for making a claim under the Extended Guarantee:

  • Any queries relating to the extended guarantee shall normally be directed to the retailer from whom the product was purchased. Queries should be raised as soon as possible after detection of the defect. A proof of purchase must always be submitted.
  • If a claim is made under the Extended Guarantee, the registration receipt (proof of guarantee) must be produced together with the proof of purchase.
  • The product shall normally be transported to the retailer or be available for inspection by the retailer or Variér’s sales representative.
  • Photographs and other documentation that document the defect or damage shall be provided.
  • If the retailer is certain that the damage is due to a fabrication fault he shall send the claim to Variér Furniture, together with documentation and necessary photographs. Variér Furniture shall evaluate repair or replacement of the product or replacement of any part due to fabrication error.

Other conditions that could affect the Extended Guarantee:

  • The cushions will change form following normal use and age. This must not be confused with loss of elasticity which can be attributed to a fabrication fault.
  • The cover (both material and leather) will stretch as a result of normal use. This must not be confused with loss of elasticity which can be attributed to a fabrication fault.
  • Folds and wrinkles may occur and are not grounds for a claim.
  • Lack of cleaning could seriously impact the lifetime of the furniture.
  • Any cover that is a synthetic material (for example, micro fibres) will on movement against the surface of the cushion, generate static electricity. This may prevent the cover reverting back to its original form after rising from the chair. The purchaser may perceive these as wrinkles or folds. However, these are temporary and can be removed by a single stroke of the hand. This must not be confused with loss of elasticity or problems with the shape which can be attributed to a fabrication error.
