We are fortunate to live in a time where the most basic assumptions about how we live and work are being questioned and reexamined.
Why is my desk so low? Is this chair really helping my back?
Renowned industrial designer Martin Keen (founder of Keen Footwear) found himself unsatisfied by the workstation options around him and decided to take another look at how we work.
There is a place between standing and sitting where our body wants to be. It’s a natural and neutral posture and it just feels right.” --Martin Keen
We couldn't agree more. As advocates of active sitting and integrating movement into the workday, we are excited to introduce a new option in healthy working:
Focal Upright Furniture . We guarantee you haven't tried anything else like it.
The visually impactful Locus Seat by Focal is designed to encourage movement and active engagement so you can focus on the work in front of you rather than the seat under you. The half-standing perching position the Locus Seat supports takes pressure off of your lower back and distributes your weight between your feet and legs along with your sit bones. The pivoting pneumatic lift and seat move with you and keep you supported as you make micro adjustments throughout the day.
Locus Seat ships with the wood seat base to keep you supported as you lean into the seat pan, forming an isosceles triangle with your legs and the pneumatic lift. Paired with the open hip angle saddle seats provide, Locus Seat is a truly healthy sitting option. Designed specifically to combat
sitting disease, the dynamic Locus Seat keeps the body moving and in natural positions.
An entirely new approach to healthy working, the Locus Desk gives users the ability to perch in a healthy half-standing position throughout the day. Although specifically designed to use with the Locus Seat, the Locus Desk is a great desk for many sit-stand chairs. Locus Desk has a height range of 36" to 48".
Locus Desk moves up an down via the powerful and convenient hand crank in the center of the drive shaft below the table top. While most crank desks require 15+ turns to move the work surface an inch in either direction, Locus moves an inch every four revolutions. Once you are finished adjusting, the desk will lock in place. The table top also tilts up to 15º.
