    Memo from NeoCon East: A Stool Still Amazes

    Safco's Zenergy stool is designed around a Yoga ball that you pump up for max bounce.

    It's amazing what you can do with a yoga ball once you put your mind to it. One of the more innovative, not to mention clever, ideas was thought up by Minneapolis-based Safco, which designed an upholstered stool around a yoga ball. The Zenergy stool may have been introduced in June, but it still received a lot of play here at NeoCon East with many designers first drawn by its cute, colorful silhouette and then to its playful, bouncy feel. It also doesn't hurt that the stool comes knocked down and only takes five minutes to assemble. Safco also recently introduced a kids version of the stool called, you guessed it, Runtz.
