Locus Seat by Focal Upright Furniture

View all 7 Photos

Locus is the hot rod of all work stations, purposed to get us off our bottoms and more engaging with our work. Movement is imperative to our health. The “sitting disease” has become a major point of reference, whereas too much time spent sitting can lead to threatening conditions such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. Unfortunately so many of us have been working in a classical cubical…for years!  It’s time to change the face of the office.

Making it all about improving your wellness the stool glides with your positions, keeping you somewhere in between sitting and standing. Leaning into your desktop is surprisingly a perfectly comfortable fit, giving your body a good excuse to stand every now and then to straighten out your spine, maybe next reaching for a pen by pushing on one foot, then back down into the stool to focus on your paperwork again. It is a beautiful blend of industrial metals and wood, with an exciting red seat. Complete with cup holder, non-slip pad, a super sleek lamp and adjustable height.

Designer and creator of Focal Upright Furniture Martin Keen began the quest to improve his work environment by removing his chair and vowing to stand instead. The solution introduced itself when he leaned his bottom into an old tractor seat tipped slightly. He found that his body kind of did this natural angle against the table top, drawing him closer to his projects, making him feel more focused and quite energized to create. Martin’s vision is to continue to influence the cubical world with revolutionizing ideas, forever changing the way we work.

From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
