Like the companies in our standing desk reviews, industrial designer Martin Keen sought to create an alternative design for a workstation, something that would obviate the need to sit. But as he experimented with standing desks, he found he eventually wanted something to lean against, and rigged up an old tractor seat that he could use for support without fully sitting on it. "Keen began leaning while working," writes his company, Focal Upright Furniture. "He suddenly realized he was no longer aware of posture—he was simply energized and focused on his creative work."
The result of this discovery is Keen's Locus Workstation, consisting of a standing desk and a leaning seat design based on what he originally rigged up with the tractor seat. We dig the variety of adjustability designed into the system and how easy it looks to activate said adjustments—check it out:
The Locus is due to launch this Fall.
