The hazards of sitting down all day at office jobs has resulted in a slew of interesting solutions, one of which involves a two-legged chair. Just as it sounds, this two-legged chair focuses on 'bearable discomfort' in order to promote healthier work days. Instead of struggling at a standing desk, this solution activates people's core while also encouraging some movement in order to combat the negative effects of being constantly sedentary.

Designed by Benoit Malta, a designer based in Paris, France, the two-legged chair is dubbed, 'Inactivite.' By balancing on such a seat, "it passively stimulates other parts of the body, much like an exercise ball," writes Design Milk. The two-legged chair also ensures better posture.
