The Steelcase Buoy is an active seating option that not only encourages movement, but interaction. Increasing movement in the body has proven to boost productivity and performance in the mind as well. With the capability to tilt up to twelve degrees in any direction, the Buoy moves and looks just as the name suggests. It can be used as an alternative seating option for an individual looking to add some spice to their daily regimen (try the Wasabi!) and combat the adverse health effects of sedentary sitting or it can be used in a group setting to quickly collaborate in any space you can imagine. Modern styling, intuitive adjust-ability and an abundance of color combinations gives the Steelcase Buoy the versatility to match the personality of any application and user.

    Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

    The Steelcase Buoy pairs active seating with mobility to match the fast pace of the modern world. Instead of being completely sedentary, active seating engages the core and demands more from your body. For an impromptu meeting, a quick brainstorm or a break from the norm, the Buoy really fits the bill.
