Theme, context:The health risks of a sedentary lifestyle are well known - affecting our back and legs and increasing the risk of colon cancer. As several recent studies point out, sitting for too long doubles the risk of diabetes and is linked to an increase in heart disease. Statistics say that eight out of ten people experience back pain from a strained neck, sore shoulders and back, inflexible spine and disk damage.
Concept:We designed a contemporary lounge chair that could address these issues by decreasing the amount of pressure that is applied on the spine by the conventional sitting position.
