Chairs built with care and precision

VELA’s R&D department is focused on optimising safety, functionality and design in collaboration with our therapists, who always ensure ergonomic comfort for the users. We take a high level of wear and tear into consideration, when making our chairs. VELA always uses quality materials, e.g. durable mechanical parts. VELA upholster the chairs with fabrics that are long term wear-resistant, so the chairs will look nice and be serviceable for many years.

All VELA chairs are manufactured in Denmark. For this reason we offer the fastest delivery times on the market. We do not manufacture the chair until it has been ordered, which always allows customisations.
