"Balans" is the most revolutionary concept within the history of Norwegian furniture design. “HÅG Balans Vital" was one of the very first models to be introduced, and it still has its place in the market - proved by its turnover of 50000 copies so far. When it was introduced in 1983 “Balans Vital" put HÅG on the map as a manufacturer with fresh ideas. The chair allows several ways of sitting and encourages variation. Its functions are simple and user friendly.
