strong stool

chair, Jake Phipps, stool, walkstool

Imagine you have to stand under the sun for hours… with little breaks in between… Well this is what we have to go through when we need to cover events on the field… ๐Ÿ˜›

So while I was standing under the hot sun during the recent SPL 2012, how I wish I can have a small chair with me… even a two step stools will be nice… or a bucket which I can turn upside down to sit on it will be good enough… but none of these are there at that time.

Last week, I searched for a super portable stool on the net… light and small… And I found this unique chair… itโ€™s not what Iโ€™m looking for but this chair is cool… coz it can be folded completely flat to a depth of just 3cm ๐Ÿ˜› The chair was designed by Jake Phipps… and it is the current woldโ€™s thinnest and compact folding chair.

OK, that was not what Iโ€™m looking for… so I search more and found this super strength stool… it is called walkstool and it can carry up to 250kg or 550lbs load… believe or not, when four of these stools are loaded with a car with each on the carsโ€™ tyres, it stand still… wonโ€™t break apart… amazing. I like the design too… it fold into a cylinder… just like a camera monopod or tripod… so when carried with backpack, people will think it just a monopod or tripod… nice… and it is very light too… less than 1kg… ๐Ÿ˜› I really want to get this stool but the only problem is the price… it is quite expensive… about USD$130 including shipping… ๐Ÿ˜›

Stool vs Chair

back pain, chair, comfort, modern, stool

Sitting in front of the computer for too long is making my back painful lately… I think one of the reasons is the chair… the chair is too old I guess… and it cant hold my weight anymore ๐Ÿ˜›

When editing photos on the computer, I will sit for hours in front of it without lifting my butt from the chair… just looking at the screen and maneuvering the mouse and keyboard with my hands.

I think by replacing my old chair with any of the modern stools will be a great help…ย  yea, I think stool will be a better choice than chair… coz I see in the architect office their draughtsman are using stool and having a taller table… it looks and feels much relaxing… emm… just like sitting in the bar… wish I will get a stool for Christmas.. ๐Ÿ˜€
