TECHNO MOTION

WHAT
Six wooden tools to stimulate a range of active sitting postures throughout the day.

WHY
Man was not made to sit. Man was made to move. Yet, contemporary office lifestyles are designed for us to spend entire days sitting passively behind computer screens. Our health is suffering; weakened muscles and sluggish blood circulation are reaching epidemic proportions.

HOW
The stools train muscles that are unused in a conventional chair and facilitate physical fitness. One of them trains us to squat — which most adults find hard to do nowadays, due to a lack of practice. The set facilitates a diversity of movement and suits every type of office scenario, from meetings to conference calls, to computer work.

QUOTE
As we merge with our machines, our movements are compromised.
