The U-Stool’s signature “U” shape is functional in getting the user to work their abdomen and legs to balance the rocking seat. This healthier method of active-sitting actually makes it easier to sit for longer periods of time by keeping the user shifting, thereby reducing strain on the back and hips. The user might burn more energy while seated, but the design’s eco-friendly construction and production process cut back on its own energy consumption! It’s even compostable at the end of its life cycle!
