Kink Stool by James Smith Designs

Kink Stool by James Smith Designs

Showing at last month’s 100% Design trade show in London for the first time, Cornwall-based designer James Smith showcased two new designs, one of which was a new stool designed to promote movement.


This versatile balance stool by James Smith Designs encourages active sitting.

The Kink stool‘s powder coated steel base is angled to allow the stool to move with the sitter, while the feet stay firmly planted. Research has shown that remaining dynamic whilst seated promotes concentration and physiological health. Kink features a dark grey steel base and an upholstered seat in charcoal colored felt.
