“There is a place between standing and sitting where our body wants to be. It’s a natural and neutral posture and it just feels right.”
You spend a third of your life at work, behind your desk and on your butt. Studies have proven that many small movements throughout the day lead to better health and that being upright is better for you.
This sedentary way of life affects us in some startling ways – not only causing obesity, but putting us at risk of long-term serious disease as well. To combat this, the founder of shoe company Keen invented a chair that will shift the way we work.
The chair consists of a wooden footplate and a downward-slanting seat that is not quite a chair. The seat is for leaning, not for sitting, and its orientation encourages constant movement.
