The architecture and design agency 'A2Office' designed a set of calorie-counting stairs for an office.

Many people who work in offices lack the time to exercise, but the calorie-counting stairs designed by the A2Office were created to at least make workers aware of the fact that physical activity is important. Located in the 'KuantoKusta' offices in Balio, Portugal, the staircase reveals the number of calories lost as the user progresses up each individual step. The staircase is able to serve as a reminder to employees of the company to ensure that they are living active lifestyles outside of work.

This simple staircase functions as both a central talking point for workers and a way to remind them to live active lifestyles.
