Concept

Variér® Penguin has an extraordinary shape that represents an evolutionary step within furniture design.The shape of the chair has a functional intention, offering rest for the arms.

The armrests resembles the flippers of penguins, hence the name.

The transverse steel tubes that attach the chassis are not fixed in place. This allows the chair to roll gently forwards and backwards, enabling correct posture for the body when leaning forwards against a table or a smooth flex when resting in the backwards position.

An easy-to-clean chair with an extragavant design which is suitable for cantines, small conference rooms, kitchens and hobby-rooms, or simply as an eye-catcher in a reception area.
