Focal Upright’s Locus Leaning Stand Up Desk Review
An ergonomist’s dream realized by a craftsman. Focal owe themselves a pat on the back – the Locus really is an impressive piece of work. We’ve seen leaning chairs before, but most follow a somewhat Spartan mold. Not so with the Locus; the pairing of desk and chair makes this the first integrated leaning workstation we’ve tested. Well-designed, well-built, and supported by a friendly, dedicated company – the Locus should be the first port of call for anyone interested in a leaning workday.

iMovR Tempo Sit-Stand Stool Review
iMovR’s two Tempo TreadTop™ seating solutions address a huge problem that many treadmill desk users contend with—how to take a break from walking or standing when your treadmill desk isn’t wide enough to accommodate a good chair alongside the treadmill. Compared to the Tempo TreadTop Office Chair, the Tempo Sit-Stand Stool is the less costly, and more versatile—in fact, we’d unconditionally recommend it as a “perching stool” for standing desk users who don’t have a treadmill. With similar ergonomic adjustability as the TreadTop Chair (only lacking a full-sized back rest), the Stool offers surprisingly good comfort—whether used as a seat, or as a standing “perch”—and is ideal for office [...]
HÅG Capisco Puls Ergonomic Chair Review
The new Capisco Puls made waves with its bold redesign, winning the coveted Red Dot Design Award in 2011. It retains the same basic elements of Opsvik’s original concept, but with a pared-down design. The seat and back rest of the older model, which featured a liberal amount of padding, have been streamlined for the Puls with molded polyurethane and sleeker angles. The ergonomic saddle seat is still a mainstay of the Puls, though it too is an update of the original: The saddle sports a slimmer, more subtle "pommel" than the first Capisco's more pronounced shape, and looks somewhat similar to the Focal Mobis's seat. In keeping with its minimalist aesthetic, the new seat is mostly bare: [...]
Focal Mobis Upright Seat Review
Another winner from Focal. Investing in a Mobis stool is an easy way to get up on your feet without risking the aches and pains of a standing workday. While it takes some time to get used to a new way of working, the leaning position encouraged by the Mobis is ergonomic and relatively intuitive. Accessibility, combined with portability and a slick, modern aesthetic, make the Mobis the ideal entry-level seat for an upright office.
Focal Upright Furniture Mogo Chair Review
A handy, well-designed little seat. Mogos can plunk down on any surface to act as a leaning seat. A correctly used Mogo also encourages small, beneficial correcting movements from a sitter’s legs, preventing the user from becoming truly sedentary – always a bonus for those concerned about sitting disease.
