Introduce an interactive piece of furniture into your home with the Out of Balance stool. Although you might have thought you interacted with all of your furniture, you will realize that it was on a very superficial level once you enjoy this fun seat.

Created by German designer Thorsten Franck, the Out of Balance stool is constructed to take the shape of an egg shell. Although it teeters from side to side, a weight at the bottom of the stool keeps it from falling over every time it is unoccupied.

Made out of thin veneer, the Out of Balance Stool sports a simple aesthetic that doesn't detract from its dynamic design. I wouldn't surprised if sitters experienced a good core workout on it as well.
