About this project
GO.LO.GOR.SKY.STUDIO is introducing the launch of TILT, an active sitting concept that keeps your core muscles engaged by allowing the body to rock gently, building strength and flexibility. Akin to stretching on long flights, the rocking motion opens the hips and increases blood circulation. This heightens focus and attention span.
TILT is design as fun - aesthetically and functionally.
At this point, we have a concept, working prototypes, and a business plan. Now it's time to make the jump into fabricating a costly mold, which is a vessel that will form the shape of the final product. The mold is $4500. I realize this is relatively low for an ambitious furniture project, but GO.LO.GOR.SKY.STUDIO is an emerging design company and funds are at a premium.
other benefits include:
When you are TILT-ing, your metabolism is running faster than when you are conventionally sitting, because your leg, back and core stomach muscles are constantly engaged and flexing to maintain posture. You shift positions naturally, your muscles contract and release. Not only do you burn more calories while actively sitting, your blood flow throughout your body is improved as well, which improves mental clarity.
Research on movement in the classroom is showing that giving students the freedom to fidget is helping them academically and physically. Realizing that movement is not necessarily a distraction, schools are looking for ways to help their students burn energy and focus attention. TILT helps them do both. The rocking motion of TILT allows the body to gently rock, building strength and flexibility. Being able to fidget has been shown to increase student concentration, especially among students with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
made from recyclable HDPE plastic, TILT is incredibly durable and lightweight.
