Swopper Chair in Leather

item#: VIA108

The Swopper Chair in Leather is a unique alternative to a standard office chair because it keeps you moving and active as you sit, burning calories and increasing your productivity. The Swopper offers health benefits usually associated with an exercise ball, but this ergonomic chair is designed to offer superior comfort, support and calorie burning motion when compared to an exercise ball. The Swopper Chair in Leather promotes healthy postures, helps to keep you productive, and strengthens your core muscles while you sit. The Swopper Chairs are available in your choice of three grades of leather with either a Titanium or Graphite colored base.

Back Support

Swopping all day is great for your back and core muscles, but sometimes you want to sit back and relax. The dynamic back support crafted of black polyurethane mesh lets you do just that. It's available only in the anthracite frame color and can be retrofitted to any swopper. If you wish to order the back support separately for a Swopper, give us a call.

The Swopper is available with or without casters, which lock when you put your weight on the seat. Please note, the casters are not removable, and they are available only with the anthracite base.

Prolence Leather - Grade 8

Prolence leather is the top of the line. It is a premium, top grain, European hide featuring aniline dyes and a transparent topical finish that protects from some stains and reduces moisture absorption. All colors are created in the initial dying phase. No shading or stains are added to the surface, so nothing obscures the natural shadings and typical surface irregularities. This creates an extremely soft hand and rich colors. Treat as you would any fine leather.

The Swopper Chair in Leather offers the health benefits of an exercise ball and the control of a task chair for a fun and unique seating experience meant to combat the dangers of static posture. The spring-loaded base ensures you will be moving and engaging your core muscles, resulting in increased circulation and energy level, evenly supplemented by a spike in productivity and a strengthened core. The Swopper is a fun and healthy alternative office chair we recommend for a few hours of use per day.

Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

The Swopper Chair in Leather promotes motion and circulation to help combat static posture which, numerous studies have shown, can significantly impact your health and life expectancy. While the Swopper moves, your core and spine are strengthened and nourished by the gentle bouncing motion provided by the Swopper's buoyant base. I recommend that this chair be used as an alternative chair for a few hours a day but not as your sole office chair.

swopper stool
May 14, 2011
The stool is great. I have only one complaint. I received the shipment, and I cut the tape with a box cutter. The product was packaged such that I scratched the leather of the seat. I was so disappointed! Once I looked carefully at the box, I saw that there was an icon saying don't use a box cutter. But I believe that when one is paying $600 for a seat, it should be packaged in a more user friendly way.

Works Well for Me
January 3, 2011
I love this thing! Despite Prof. Ergo's recommendation above, I now use it all day as my only office chair (although I did build up to it). It keeps me moving throughout the day, and keeps my lower back muscles from tightening up. My back feels much better since I got it. Should have bought it long ago.

Great chair

I have black disk in my lower back, meaning that they have been compressed. This chair is and will continue to rebuilt those cushions properly and give relief.
