(August 7, 2015) Ballo is designer Don Chadwick’s vision of what a multipurpose stool should be—fun, engaging and perfect for short-term, active sitting in the home or office. With a compact central column and lightweight air-filled domes, Ballo is an imaginative take on traditional ball chairs, supporting flexibility and freedom of movement. Available in a variety of vibrant colors, Ballo has a dynamic nature that allows it to integrate into a wide range of environments. In addition to Ballo, Humanscale develops and manufactures ergonomic products for the work place with an emphasis on functionality, intuition and material sustainability, with the hope of created safer, more comfortable workplace.
Studies show that comfortable employees are happier and more productive. In the modern workplace, the ability to move is increasingly important for overall comfort and well-being. Ballo makes movement effortless, while its lightweight design makes it easy to transport for spontaneous use.
Ballo and the Environment
Humanscale products are designed with a constant and genuine focus on their environmental impact at every stage of their development. For us, the best designs in the world achieve more with less, and sustainability is the natural result of this focus. Although inspired by the exercise ball, Ballo does not contain traditionally used PVC (also known as vinyl) that can be harmful to people and the environment.
