Active and playful sitting combined with design.
ONGOKit - sit still? please don't
The ONGO®Kit is the little brother of the ONGO®Classic. Children are always on the move. Or at least that is how nature intended them. Sitting, sitting still, sitting still for a long time – none of that is good for either children or adults. If there’s no movement your back becomes rounded and your spirit lets your head hang low. Can you sit while moving?
Can we assist children’s natural urge to move even when they’re seated? Is a chair made only to be sat on, or can it be a plaything too? The ONGO® Kit answers those questions. And another advantage: the separately orderable kit height means the ONGO®Kit grows with you!
From the Start
Children are not born with postural damage. But early on, at kindergarten even, the first consequences of static sitting emerge: a stooped sitting posture and rounded back. This doesn’t just influence the child’s bearing, it affects breathing and circulation. Static sitting can even have a negative effect on concentration and the development of the brain during childhood. The ONGO®Kit has a rounded base, firm seat and no backrest, so it promotes balance and coordination early on and helps prevent postural damage. Lay the foundations for a healthy back in early childhood – playfully, beautifully, and without compulsion.
