ACTIVE CLASSROOM
Stools

2020

The ‘Active Classroom’ is a series of ergonomic children’s furniture designed for the school of the future.
Study after study links more time spent sitting in conventional chairs with increased health risks. The deep habituation in chair sitting served as a motivation to finding healthy alternatives for sitting, starting with the youth. The stools aim to encourage a frequent alternation of different sitting postures to increase the muscular activity and diversity.
In collaboration with the Free University of Amsterdam & University of Groningen, research is being conducted to give a better understanding on postural behaviours and how the stools can contribute to healthier classrooms.
