Between standing and sitting, "there's a natural, neutral posture that just feels right," says Martin Keen, the industrial designer behind the Focal Locus Workstation. The aluminum, bentwood, and polymer seat and desk are designed to move with you and encourage "active engagement," the opposite of slouching. Keen claims that using it will give you more clarity than sitting would, "activating the body to keep up with the mind." But it still won't write a status report.
