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.

    Takes time to ease into it, but worth it

    Posted by Paul Smith on Jan 21st 2010

    I got this chair in November, and as the info that came with it says, it's best to start with a small amount of time a day, increasing over time until you can use it all day. For a while I noticed I felt warm in the pelvic/hip area, and thought it was the seat material. No, it was normal temperature. Perhaps my body adjusting to a different, healthier posture?

    At first I could only sit in it 1-2 hours, swapping out for the other regular chair. But I always noticed that, ultimately, sitting in the Swopper felt more natural, healthy, supportive.

    Then about a week ago, I thought to try sitting further back on the chair, and loosening the lateral tension. Worked. Now I've sat in it all day, no problem, for 2 days.

    Definitely recommended.

    The best task chair

    Posted by Glenn on Sep 26th 2009

    I was skeptical of the swopper, inspite of the great reviews of the chair. I decided to try it out on a trial basis and am now very impressed by this chair/stool. My back issue totally disappeared by using the chair. The key thing is to get used to sitting on it by increasing the amount of time each day, till you finally use it all the time. This chair will strengthen your core muscles that have been weakened through years of sitting on static chairs. This chair could dramatically change your core physical conditioning to the point your back will become strong enough to be self-supporting. This translates into affecting other areas of your life that require you to have a strong back. I'm so impressed with the results of using the chair that I'm planning to get another one for use at work.
