Poorly designed

Don’t count on useful instructions nor a design that supports successful assembly. However if you’re an absolute wiz at work-arounds and have the good kind of luck (such that the chair will support you even though a central screw under the seat will NOT engage) you might end up with a chair that suits you and doesn’t come crashing to the floor one day.

Great for posture

I fidget a lot while sitting and this chair allows me to move without compromising my posture or comfort.

Great chair for post back surgery!

I just had lumbar fusion and have just started working again from home. This chair makes it possible for me to sit more comfortably than I can in my original office chair. You really can feel a difference. My shins do feel pressure over time, but there are so many ways to sit in this chair with correct posture, I just shift positions to relieve my shins.

What price back health?

Thought I'd leave a review as I really wish I'd been able to find some reviews when I bought it...I've been using this chair for over 6 months now in the office, after chronic neck and back problems. It doesn't look good. It's also probably the most over-priced lump of plywood and a few screws you'll ever buy. But... you've got to give it to them - it really is a great chair. I no longer feel stiff and uncomfortable by the end of the day, and my posture has improved. I won't pretend it's solved all my problems, but my general spine health is significantly better than it was when I brought the chair, and the chair has definitely been a part of that. Unlike other kneeling chairs, it doesn't put too much pressure on your shins, which was a problem for me with other chairs. I've had no problems with this on the Varier. The adjustable backrest is great, as it allows you to easily change the balance of the chair, and sit more upright or further back as required.If you're using it as an office chair, one of the downsides is that it isn't the easiest thing to get in and out of when you've got a desk in front of you, but unless you're particularly immobile, you're not going to get trapped.All in all, yes, the price tag is ridiculous, and the aesthetics are pretty shocking - but if you have to sit on a chair every day and have spine problems then it may well be worth the cost - which I suppose what their pricing strategy is based on. I wouldn't go back to any other chair.

You'll wish Bjorn or Sven were there to help you put it together

I've had this chair for about a month now, and I would not go back to using a regular office chair. I debated long and hard about whether it would be worth the extra money to buy this chair over the Varier Balans. Not having tried out the Balans, I can't really say if it is worth the extra, but I do find the padded back-rest with the arm rests quite useful. The back rest is adjustable forward to back, and is nice support when I am listening on a conference call and want to stretch a little. The padded section of the back rest is also adjustable vertically. The knee rests swivel so you can adjust the angle of your shin, and the knee pads can be adjusted higher or lower.Putting this chair together was pretty exasperating. While it is well constructed, and everything fits as it should, trying to solo the assembly is not for the faint of heart or weak of spirit. There are times when you will find yourself face down on the floor trying to eyeball the location for the screw, while simultaneously balancing the backrest on your big toe, and discovering that you need a third hand to actually hold the pieces tightly together. It's just you and an allen key taking on the best in Norwegian engineering.My first impression on using the chair was that suddenly my back and butt were getting a bit of a rest while my shins and legs did a bit more work. After using it for a month, I find that I adjust to several different positions throughout the work day, and it adjusts nicely to let me closer to the keyboard, or lean backwards for stretching. On a few occasions for a little variety I have turned the chair around and used the backward seating position, with my chest leaning on the back rest.All in all a great chair. I like the way it looks, and compared to most office chairs it has very clean lines. It is lightweight and easy to move. The price tag is pretty ridiculous, but I'm looking at it as a long term investment in my back health. Varier warrantees the mechanical pieces for 5 years, and the wood for 7 years. If I use this chair for 7 years, I'm looking at it costing about 50 cents a day.Update: One year later and I'm still delighted with this chair. I use this chair every day, most days for 7-8 hours, and it still looks like new.
