Active Classroom
by Studio Lancelot

Shortlisted for workplace design of the year at Dezeen Awards 2020, Active Classroom is a series of ergonomic children's furniture designed for the school of the future.

Study after study shows that more time spent sitting in conventional chairs can cause serious health risks. The deep habituation in chair sitting served as an inspiration to design healthy alternatives for sitting, starting with the youth.

The four stools aim to encourage a frequent alternation of different postures to increase muscular diversity.

In collaboration with the Free University of Amsterdam and University of Groningen, research is being conducted to give a better understanding on how the design can contribute to healthier classrooms.
