The Level

The Level is a motion platform that aims to reduce health issues derived from sedentary occupations. Itīs true that our body was designed to move, it has a rich dynamic balance disabled by our modern way of life and work style, this way of life is far from being healthy and natural, we were not made to sit in the same place for hours…with that in mind the guys at Fluidstance thought of a way to move wile staying in the same place, an elegant platform made from bamboo and aluminum, that defies you to balance on it, thus exercising in the process.
