the Buoy, from Turnstone. While it doesn't make sitting exactly "fun," it does make it a lot more enjoyable.
What, exactly, is the Buoy? It's a seat with a contoured base that enables the sitter to tilt up to 12 degrees and swivel while seated. It's active sitting, engaging the core and leg muscles to stabilize the sitter, and it's a pretty good improvement on the passive variety.
Weighing in at only 20 pounds, the Buoy can accommodate sitters of various heights. An easy-to-activate lever lets you adjust the height from 17 to 22.5 inches. The Buoy is also customizable...you get to choose from a selection of base and cap colors. (My personal Buoy features a "Geranium" cloth cap on a Black base--it's pretty chic, I have to say.)
Although it's not designed for long hours of sitting--the cloth cap is fairly slim and doesn't offer a ton of padding--it's perfect for short tasks and activities like TV watching. Have a grad leaving for college? I think the Buoy would be a terrific addition to a dorm room!
So, my friends...how about a Buoy of your own? The lovely folks at Turnstone want to give you one! Go ahead and fill out the form below to earn your chances to win. The winner will get to customize his or her own Buoy. Good luck!
