ONGO - Den aller beste balansestolen? – i hvert fall den som velges av flest kunder!
„I DIDN´T START OUT PLANNING TO DESIGN A SEAT. I JUST WANTED TO SIT IN A HEALTHY WAY!"
EBERHARD LENZ, FOUNDER AND ONGO® DESIGNER
During my search for an appropriate product, I came across a stool with a curved base. I was impressed with how simple it is to sit actively with this kind of stool, and how effectively you can achieve improved posture and strengthen the muscles of the back this way.
Ultimately, though, there was one crucial element that I felt was missing from all of the products I found, something to really bring the health-promoting aspect of the seat to the fore: feedback. Playing around with the physics of it finally resulted in the ball track used in the ONGO®Seat. The ball rolls in a circle, giving acoustic feedback and encouraging active sitting on the stool.
ONGO® GmbH is a young company in the field of health management, a market with bright prospects for the future. The first product we have developed in-house is the ONGO® Seat. We are already at work on developing additional devices that will help people easily build simple exercices into our everyday lives to promote health and enhance physical performance - effective devices that also meet the highest aesthetic standards.
By the way: ONGO® is a composite of „on“ and „go“ - and we hope the name clearly symbolizes the fact that with our devices, you can exercise anytime, in between other tasks or at the same time. Our name is also akin to the Spanish word hongo, or „mushroom". When you see our first product, the ONGO® Seat, you'll quickly see why!
