The Gold Standard of Leaning Seats
At $715, this is the most expensive and the highest quality leaning chair on the market. We have tested this extensively, and this chair has withstood the test of time. The seat can be locked into a position where you’re comfortable, or it freely swivel as you shift while leaning.
Overall the Focal Locus has earned the perfect score of 5/5 for ergonomics and quality. If you are looking for a cheaper option, take a look at the Varidesk Varichair.
The cushion is available in several colors: chili pepper, citrus, black, and nubuck. The base is available in glacier white laminate, or matte black laminate.
Below is a quick presentation from ergoprise demonstrating the focal locus seat.
Lean for your health
After a few years of not sitting all day at my desk, I’ve developed a mix of sitting, standing and leaning. If I’m tired, I’ll sit for a while. If I stood for a while and I don’t want to sit, I lean. So for me leaning is in between standing and sitting in terms of energy expenditure, but with leaning you still avoid the dangers of long periods of sitting.
