Thomas De Lussac’s Ballon Bloon seat is an innovative ergonomic piece of furniture designed to provide a comfortable seating experience while stimulating balance and posture for the user.
The Ballon Bloon seat is made from robust and durable materials, typically high-quality PVC or rubber, some of which are recycled.
The project has recently been awarded a 2023 Good Design Award by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
Its internal structure is designed to maintain its shape and stability through a weighted base, allowing the Bloon to always return to its initial position, while still being flexible enough to adapt to the user’s movements.
The seat is inflated using a pump provided in the packaging, allowing for adjustable firmness based on individual preferences. However, it is important to follow the provided inflation guidelines to ensure optimal comfort and safe usage.
The Ballon Bloon seat is designed to promote proper posture and even weight distribution.
By sitting on a Bloon, the user is naturally encouraged to engage their stabilizing muscles and maintain a balanced position, which can contribute to improved posture and reduced muscle tension.
The Ballon Bloon seat is suitable for various environments due to its belt, which allows easy transportation between different settings.
It can be used in workspaces, schools, rehabilitation facilities, children’s play areas, waiting rooms, and more. Its versatility allows for both indoor and outdoor use, depending on the models and materials chosen.
The zipper located under the belt enables the cover to be machine-washed, extending the product’s lifespan.
In addition to its playful and appealing design, the Ballon Bloon seat offers several advantages.
It promotes better posture, strengthens the muscles of the back and abdominal region, enhances concentration and balance, and provides a dynamic and comfortable alternative to traditional seating.
In summary, the Ballon Bloon seat is a technical and ergonomic piece of furniture that combines comfort, design, and benefits for posture and balance.
Its sturdy structure, adjustable inflation, and versatility make it an attractive option for various environments.
