SIT – the future of sitting

About

“We are born to move, movement is what our body needs while we work.”

SIT is a stool and desk set designed to promote healthier habits by providing an active working environment that refreshes how we usually sit. The wooden stool sits higher than a standard office chair to ensure that the user’s hips, heels and shoulders are kept in vertical alignment and enable weight to be spread across both the feet and back. A small backrest keeps the frame in an ergonomic position, while a flexible support stops sitters from staying still for too long.

  • Polish based designer Katarzyna Kempa did her master degree in Switzerland, where she graduated from ECAL’s product design course this year. Her projects are always initiated with research, yet she likes to take risks and is focused on human well-being in the projects. Among others she took part in exhibitions such as: Axor HansGrohe in Milan – creating a faucet based on U-base made by Starck; did project for an exhibition in apartment 50 in Le Corbuiser’s legendary Cité Radieuse; got an first prize in ELLE Decoration competition ‘Young for the Start’. She’s only just returned to Warsaw to offer her experience hyping up the Polish market.more
