Sit . Unstrap . Nap

This comfortable, highly versatile futon comes in three sizes to appeal to people of all ages and shapes. As the Nido chair, it offers a cosy nook where you can curl up for a phone conversation or settle down to read email on your tablet. Share the larger Nest chair with your toddler at story time or give them their own Mini Nido. Undo the four velcro straps at the back of your futon chair and it quickly becomes a half-moon futon, suitable for a nap, meditation, or just lounging. Put two open Nidos together to make an inviting circular bed that’s sure to impress overnight guests.

Variableʼs unique design and functionality make it an icon that is instantly recognizable. Throughout its 40 years of history, the gentle tilting motion and open angle sitting posture have remained constant. The sophisticated kneeling design provides optimal comfort while gently switching between kneeling and the more traditional posture. The Variable fits in nicely with all interiors, especially accompanied with a desk.

Variable is made from top quality beech plywood from European forests. The plywood is treated through an iterative molding process where several veneer layers are combined and glued. Through the application of combined heat and pressure, the layers are given their characteristic shape, making our Variable stand out from the crowd. All wooden parts are flexible and strong, ensuring a sitting experience that is never static. For a beautiful finish, our plywood is covered with ash top veneer, manually sanded and coated with water-based, non-toxic lacquers.

All quick-ship Variables are upholstered in Revive fabric, responsibly manufactured using 100% post-consumer recycled polyester (PET) made from recycled plastic bottles. Eco-friendly Active Sitting.
