From Richard Clarkson

As part of the Material Futures course – MFA in Products of Design, SVA, and taught on site at Material Connexion. We created a stool that encourages active sitting, uses significantly less energy in the manufacturing process, and is compostable in such a way as to become land-art in its afterlife. It engages the participant by gently rocking, allowing them to use their abdominal muscles and feet for support. It is easier to sit for longer periods of time on the U Stool because the user is constantly shifting, reducing the amount of mechanical load on the back, hips and other parts of the body.
