“Cradle” is a chair designed for active learning. Users just shift their body weight to tilt the seat any direction and can freely turn in a manner that facilitates communication and lively discussions. Cradle comes with casters allowing you to easily adjust the room layout to match the hearing or discussion scenario. Just tilting slightly forward makes for easy PC work or writing while shifting your weight sideways allows you to remove items from the Cradle sides. Swinging your body around causes a counterforce that gives a stabilizing feel which relieves fatigue. The optional table has a swivel mechanism with position adjuster for smooth standing and sitting.
