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.
