Humans were created to move, not to sit still.
“I believe that the spine is happiest when it can adopt the natural curvature that it has when we stand upright” -Peter Opsvik
At the breakfast counter, desk, table, or even while painting or playing the piano, this versatile chair is the perfect chair for you. Truly intuitive, the chair has a slightly rounded base, which tilts the chair in smooth, gentle movements. The saddle seat supports an upright, dynamic posture, which activates and strengthens core muscles in the abdomen and back. With feet placed on the floor, it’s easy to balance and stabilize or tilt, pivot, or rotate 360*. The open angle between the upper and lower body improves circulation, boosting energy levels and concentration.
No scientific evidence supports the notion that the “correct” sitting posture is upright, at a right angle. In fact, studies are now revealing that the body operates best when its form is allowed to remain open and fluid.
This stool promotes constant natural movement, keeping the back and abdominal muscles active at all times. While sitting, the user is actually strengthening the core muscles of the abdomen and back while preventing tension in the neck and shoulders.
This “active sitting” improves circulation and oxygen levels, boosting energy, concentration, and overall well-being.
