People with sedentary positions have twice the rate of cardiovascular diseases as people with more active occupations. To encourage those with a desk job to adopt a healthier work stance, Valeriane Lazard developed Counterpoise. More a perch than a seat, it tilts, allowing you to either sit on it or lean against it while standing. The sleek look of the chair contrasts with the rugged natural appearance of the stone at the base used as a counterweight.
