          The Buoy is a great chair, I have one in my office and have purchased one for one of my employees who expressed an interest. The added little bit of extra movement makes sitting at a desk feel less dull! Actually, I'm just glad it's a small step away from the "sitting is the new smoking" message that is sweeping the country and I'm happy I could provide one for my staff too.

                Enjoy the Buoy and have told several friends about it. Last week had a meeting that was about 8 hours of sitting. The entire time I was wishing that I was setting on my Buoy.

                  Comments about turnstone Buoy - Chili Red:

                  The buoy is an attractive, stylish, and fun task seat for students at our school. The intentional movement actually helps them stay focused and on task while showcasing innovation! We use the buoy in our media classes (so students can quickly change seating arrangements depending on the calls for collaboration) AND in our library at small group collaborative work tables.

                    Comments about turnstone Buoy - Chili Red:

                    I've ordered the chair to replace my office chair to achieve "active" rather than "passive" sitting. I have lower back issues and I have already noticed a difference in my posture. As an added bonus I work at a school for special needs students who use ball chairs, wedges, etc. for added sensory input throughout the day. We are looking into using these as an alternative because of the stability and sturdiness of the product.

                      We are using these as part of seating in our common area for our church. They are great for adults and are kid magnets. We would recommend them as a non traditional seating choice.

                          Hello,

                          The cap is the upholstered part, where you sit, and the shell is the rest of it.
