Pocket / Thoracic-Lumbar Support


POCKET seeks to introduce active sitting through a pocket of air. A snap-top mechanism allows a quick capture of air, which can be adjusted using an air-releasing valve to suit different individuals. POCKET plays with the notion of controlled instability, which keeps you constantly in minute motion. This helps you to be aware of your posture, while strengthening the core muscles and lumbo-pelvic control.
