Peter Opsvik doesn’t sit still, and according to his perspective, neither should you. In a world that has become increasingly sedentary, we need to move more
Peter Opsvik’s objective was that one chair should seat persons of all sizes from approximately 8 months and up, in a natural way at the same table.
As the name “Variable” indicates, it is of primary importance that the chair inspires movement and variation and emphasises that the kneeling posture is one of many. The curved rail tilts the chair forward and backwards from the normal position.
The inspiration for the “Saddle Chair” HÅG Capisco, was a horseback rider’s dynamic posture. The goal, however, was to create a sitting device or work chair that would invite the user to assume the greatest number of sitting postures. In order to achieve this, body support and freedom for movement is equally important.
This piece of art shows how norms of “sitting nicely” and “sitting still” can be broken. People easily find numerous comfortable sitting postures. In the new version the branches of the tree continue down and become supporting roots.
The Globe Garden is not only an icon; it is an art object and eye-catcher. It also offers numerous comfortable sitting positions!
Multipurpose chairs, reusable and renewable materials and timeless design are all together Peter Opsvik’s trademark. Peter designs furniture that lasts. Many of them have become icons.
