VIA Swopper Base Color


Hue - Grade 1

Hue is crafted of 100% recycled polyester and features a latex backing and a teflon surface finish. Hue is extremely durable, an excellent choice for 24/7, multi-user applications as its abrasion rating is one million rubs. It can be cleaned with water based agents, foam or pure water-free solvents.

Natural Top Grain Leather - Grade 6

Grade 6 top grain leather is extremely high quality and colored with pure aniline dyes. They feature rich colors and a durable, protective finish with a very soft and supple hand. Treat as you would any fine leather.



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.

Back Support

Swopping all day is great for your back and core muscles, but eventually you will want to sit back and relax. The dynamic back support crafted of black polyurethane mesh lets you do just that. It matches the anthracite frame color and can be retrofitted to any Swopper. If you wish to order the back support separately for an existing Swopper, give us a call at (800) 531-3746.

    Love the Swopper

    Bought 3 Swoppers recently and I could not be happier with them. Comfortable, stimulating and built like a tank!

    Eye-catching and fun!

    Posted by Laure on Aug 5th 2015

    After seeing the Swopper on Youtube, it was wonderful to try it out in person in your Austin store when we were up that way visiting. What a cool chair! The staff at The Human Solution was so honest with me about the possible issue with the chair - the hardness that makes it hard to sit on for a long time, and the tip to switch between chairs just as I would switch between sitting and standing during my day - that I was not troubled at all by that feature. I also appreciated the heads up that the leather cover might be more slippery than I personally would prefer. It was also really interesting to try out other chairs - kneeling chairs, saddle chairs and so forth. There is nothing like trying things out in person, and your store and your staff are awesome.

    I later ended up ordering a cute green cloth-covered Swopper on a platinum color base from you guys for my big Christmas present. The customer service was excellent both in store and online, delivery was as promised and I've been enjoying my Swopper ever since. When it is in the main gathering area at home (as an alternative to sitting on the couch to watch tv), guests invariable enjoy sitting on it. It roams around my home depending on where I'm in the mood to use it.

    An unexpected discovery: A number of chiropractors have their clients use inflatable wobble cushions daily and right before adjustments. I love that the Swopper is like a really elegant wobble cushion - it feels great to use the Swopper to stretch my spine in different ways and to activate muscles in my trunk.

    Terrific seat

    Posted by Nathan on Jun 11th 2011

    I bought two of the Swopper stools and they are much better than I expected. I sit on one at work all day and I've never once regretted it. It is energizing to sit on, completely unlike a regular chair, where getting out of the chair makes me regret sitting in it. With the Swopper I get up easily and feel as if I wasn't even sitting at all. I'm very glad to have the Swopper.

    Great product!

    Posted by JM on Apr 19th 2011

    Before purchasing the Swopper, I was using a Pilates Ball chair. I liked using a chair without a back and felt that it strengthened and put less pressure on my back but found the Pilates Ball chair uncomfortable after a while. This chair is better for many reasons but mainly because it's adjustable and keeps your legs at a good angle.

    Great seat!!!

    Posted by Scott on Mar 31st 2011

    Everything good you read about the product is true. It's well constructed, very attractive design, and makes so much sense to sit on relative to other chairs.

    The only negative, which I did see in previous reviews, is that it feels a bit hard, so you do get sore about a while of sitting on it. It is padded, so I'm not sure if this is because it needs more padding or the fact that your weight is more concentrated than on a regular chair. I previous review said that he didn't mind it because it just forced him to get up and walk around more, and I completely agree. This seat makes you more active while sitting on it as well.

    Finally, a Dream

    Posted by Jessica Chamberlin on Mar 30th 2011

    I've been wanting a Swopper for many, many years, and I finally received one as a gift from a dear friend for my birthday. It is wonderful to be active and moving while seated.

    I can't wait to get another one for my other working area in my apartment.

    Thank you!

    The Swopper is great!

    Posted by Karola Thurman on Jun 17th 2010

    I have had the Swopper for about one month, now and I absolutely love it. I don't have to worry about my lower back, anymore. It was an investment worthwhile.

    Very cool... and a little bit hard

    Posted by Craig on Jun 16th 2010

    I love this chair. Aside from the instant notoriety I earned when I unpacked it at the office, it does its job well. It's fun to sit on -- and listening to music while I work is a blast (lots of bouncing).

    My only complaint is the cushioning -- it can't be more than 3/4" thick, and it's not particularly firm, so my buttocks often get sore after a few hours. It gives me a reason to get up and walk around a bit, but I am seriously considering adding some cushioning of my own. Fortunately, the seat covering is removable and if I do this it shouldn't be too difficult.

This product comes standard with a five year warranty.
