John van der Kamp and Boris Lancelot (VU): Rom & Lupa designed by Lentala: school furniture for active sitting

Today, children move too little and sit too much, especially a school classrooms. Prolonged passive sitting is a risk factor for poor physical health and low mental well-being. The human body has evolved to move and children naturally use a much wider range of intuitive sitting postures than what regular school chairs allow for. Lentala revolutionizes school furniture design for playful seatings, so that children are able to more often reposition their body, shifting regularly between sitting postures. Lentala aims to introduce the furniture at schools, so that today’s children become the forerunners in society’s transformation towards active, healthy sitting habits.
