One of our favorite booths to visit at the National Ergonomics Expo in Las Vegas is the Varier Furniture booth. Varier is the Scandinavian design company responsible for unique seating solutions like the Thatsit Kneeling Chair, the Move Stool, and the Gravity Balans Recliner, and was one of the nominees this year for Best New Product with their Active Chair.

While visiting their booth this year, we got to sit in an Active Chair, and they showed us an interesting video of Extreme Makeover Home Edition‘s Ty Pennington visiting their factory in Alesund, Norway, on his tour of Norwegian designers courtesy of the Royal Norwegian Consulate.

Below, you can see the video, which involves Ty trying to upholster a Varier Peel Chair – another great chair we got to sit in at the ErgoExpo:

Will Moore has been with The Human Solution since 2011, and currently resides in Austin, Texas, with his lovely wife Angie and their terriers Eli and Hannah. When not writing about or selling ergonomic furniture, he’s usually catching a live music show or watching a movie at the Alamo Drafthouse. He enjoys bacon, Pearl Jam, and sitting in a Steelcase Amia Chair when not using his desk’s standing capabilities (ah, the perks of working at THS). He is responsible for spearheading the very popular Music Friday at THS, in which a theme is picked and everyone plays a song in turn, culminating in the entire office ceremonially playing “Who Let the Dogs Out,” no matter what the theme, every Friday at 6 pm when we close.
