The "Akitãi" stool meaning low, low stature in Tupi (indigenous language Brazilian), is a reference to the act of sitting Indian crouched, and much more ergonomic than our chairs and even more comfortable as we were seated directly on our ischial tuberosity and is much used when we are in a group of wheel, making a pike -nique, reading a book on the balcony, situations where we want to really sit and relax. Designing a stool that is conducive to sit crouched, the stool "Akitãi" comes to bring more meaning of indigenous culture in our lives.
