Children spend most of their time in school engaged inside their classrooms for hours at end. Passive sitting is touted as the prime cause of poor physical posture impacting their health. As a playful solution, design firm Lentala has crafted new Rom and Lupa Chairs to explore various sitting postures.
Studio Lentala realizes the importance of active sitting and thus has come up with these innovative fun-loving chairs. Lupa Kids and Rom Kids are primarily posed as revolutionary school chairs, they can be used by adults as well. Rom’s design resembles a surfboard aiding seamless sitting transitions. Portable and compatible with your regular desks, the chair inclines one toward adapting flexible sitting postures.
For enhanced safety measures, the chairs are designed as a single piece without any mechanical parts. Round and curved edges are kept on purpose for extra protection on the chair’s wooden frame. Available in a natural water-based finish, Rom and Lupa Chairs provide users with an alternative of eight sitting positions.
The chair’s interactive design is resourcefully crafted to boost children’s mental and physical leading to increased activity. “Chairs shape our daily movement patterns, limiting our bodies to very few sitting postures and leading to us missing out on gentle muscular diversity,” says Studio Lentala founder Boris Lancelot.
The inspiration behind the design and make is Lenatal’s research on seating challenges faced mostly by Western culture as opposed to others. Lentala chairs challenge the standardized sitting options and provide a solution to rectify the impact of wrong sitting postures.
A need to customize the seating options, especially for children has led to the ergonomic design of Rom & Lupa chairs. An easily stackable design is brought to life with merino wool felt colors. Lupa Kids and Rom Kids can be ordered through an inquiry-based email, whereas Rom comes at a price of $360 on Lentala’s official website.
