Can This Chair Make You a Little Smarter?

by Adele Peters

May 4, 2013

The chair was well-designed in other ways, too: it's made from 100 percent recycled material, and because it's one solid piece, it's also easy to recycle, unlike most office chairs. It's also designed to be lightweight and stackable, so it's easy to ship, and incredibly durable and long-lasting.

A better chair alone obviously isn't enough to avoid the perils of sitting. Experts recommend taking breaks to move as much as you can, or least for a couple of minutes every 20 minutes or so. And if you're really motivated, perhaps you can try out this design for a desk and chair that convert into a mini-gym.
