Saddle/Pony

designed by Niels Diffrient
(20)

Part of Humanscale’s award-winning Freedom seating line, the Saddle and Pony task stools are the most comfortable, versatile and ergonomic stools ever made. The original Saddle and the compact Pony Saddle make sitting comfortable and workplace movement simple while complementing any workspace or home office. The triangular cushion of the Saddle and Pony saddle encourages users to sit in a “saddle” posture. Sitting in this position lowers the thighs, opens up the hips and allows for increased circulation. The posture also reduces pressure points on the tail bone enabling long-term comfort.

The Perfect Home Office Chair
This is one of the most comfortable desk seating options if you frequently sit down/stand up. I have a taller cylinder installed on mine, which allows me to raise the saddle to open up my hips and drop my legs below the seat height. Lowering it down takes it back to a more traditional backless seat. The lack of back support has never been a problem, as the design of the saddle keeps my hips in good alignment throughout the day. You just can't slouch for too long. Since I work from home, I don't want a huge piece of office furniture in the middle of my living room. This piece hides nicely under the desk at the end of the day.

great chair
It's a great chair for those with hip, lower back and even upper cervical issues and the style is nice too. I've had mine for over 3 years and it still looks new.

Great for Medical Office
The pony saddle stools work well in my exam rooms and have essentially eliminated the lower back pain I had been getting previously with traditional flat exam stools.
