Balance stool strengthens your core while you work

We spend far too much time sitting. That's why TreeHugger has shown so much "active furniture" like Darryl Agawin's No Sweat line. Now the Vancouver designer is back with a new idea, the Balance Stool.

The Balance Stool incorporates an innovative "wobble" seat, which enables passive strengthening and balance exercises for the user. The "wobble" seat can also be removed for balance exercises on any hard surface.

The Balance Stool's clean lines fit into any work environment and its solid ash construction makes for a durable furniture piece that can stand up to repeated active use. The natural soap finish provides a smooth rocking seat and an easy to clean surface. The visually simplistic stool utilizes CNC production techniques to provide simple assembly for the end user.

So instead of just sitting there, you can strengthen your core and improve your posture. Nicely done. More at Darryl Agawin; found at IIDEX
