The new Meditation Seats are part of the Wellness Collection. With all the time spent at home recently, a favorite pastime has been meditation.  It helps us focus, reflect, and ground ourselves, which is particularly helpful during these unusual times.

Regular meditation seat cushions all tend to flatten and deform over time, so Tina wanted o rectify this issue by sculpting this bean-shaped seat. It is an ergonomically shaped bean seat that comfortably cradles your sit bones while allowing you to sit alert.


There is something special about the geometry of standard paper sizes, whether your preference is for a basic A4 sheet, or something larger, or much smaller.The new platters are based on the A-series of the international paper size standards. The geometry of the series follows the dimensions of A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8. Each successive size in the series is defined by halving the preceding size across the larger dimensions.

As always, the pieces are multipurpose and can be used in a variety of places from the tabletop, to workspace, desktop, to bath. Depending on the color selected, it can give a minimalist zen vibe, remind you of gentle grey fog, or be reminiscent of colorful translucent popsicles.
