Netherlands-based bERT&dENNIS (that's Bert van der Grift and Dennis van der Burch) strive for "Simplicity, fluidity, angularity, utility; organic forms vie with subtle references to Bauhaus, kitsch, traditional Japanese."

Alan Heller's ergoErgo "combines the health benefits of an exercise ball with the comfort of a cushioned seat;" perching atop the constantly swaying stool forces you to engage your legs and back to stay upright.
