About

 

Scandinavian-Inspired, Patent-Designed Ergonomic Sitting Ball

This stylish VLUV ball was designed and produced by the Hock design team who were inspired by the Scandinavian, minimalist style. The coarsely woven upholstery fabric has a woolly, soft surface and comes in an assortment of warm hues. VLUV is the stylish, alternative way of ergonomic sitting.

The ball can be used to actively sit on, rock and roll around or workout. As light as air and as comfortable as a cushioned chair, this seat helps you to sit actively, and has been certified as an 'ergonomic product' by the IGR eV (Association of Back School Teachers' Interests).

Designed with a keen eye to detail, these minimalist seating balls are super lightweight and have a handle for easy and safe transport. Thanks to its firm cover, it also has an improved upright seating position compared to a PVC ball, making it perfect for sitting on all day long. They are also more durable and safe thanks to the duoTHREAD double seams, unROLL feature which prevents the ball from rolling away too easily, and the double layer of ball and cover prevents size expansion and bursting of the ball. This careful detailing makes these otherwise simply beautiful balls a coherent seating concept as well.

But they're also just a stunning design feature! Available in an assortment of trendy Scandinavian-inspired colours, these seating balls will make any space more lively and inspiring.


Where it comes from


Designed by German innovator Kristof Hock, VLUV balls have been revolutionizing the market since the beginning of 2015.

The Hock team knows better than anyone that healthy sitting means active sitting. That began about 30 years ago with the use of PVC gymnastic balls in many offices. But those had disadvantages. They rolled away, were sticky, unwieldy, and unattractive. With a small and personal team, the Hock team set about creating solutions to the drawbacks of these original gymnastics balls and transformed a simple rubber ball into not only a comfortable piece of seating furniture but also a stunning minimalist design object.

Idyllically located next to a river in a centuries-old wool spinning mill, 40km east of Cologne, the sustainably-minded Hock team are committed to aesthetics, quality and innovation when designing their ergonomic, exercise and sports products.

 

How to Use

 

These stunning seating balls are designed for just that - sitting! But although they make the most comfortable, ergonomic and back-friendly seating, they also provide more than that. You can also use them to exercise, just as you would a regular PVC gymnastics ball. The cover can also be easily removed and washed for your convenience.

Give your back a break and use them in your office as your new work chair or play around with them at the dining table or in the lounge room. Whatever space, they will bring a modern, Scandinavian design feature and endless comfort and fun.

    Your questions enlighten us. Forest Homes' FAQ are inspired in customers' common inquiries.

    What are the real benefits from having a nature inspired space?

    Benefits from contact with nature to human beings is nothing new. Scientific research throughout the years has proven the numerous benefits of being immersed in natural environments for health and wellbeing- including urban natural environments (Read further here). A nature inspired space can help us:

    • Reduce stress
    • Increase our ability to focus and hence our overall productivity
    • Boost our energy levels
    • Improve our moods
    • Contribute to better sleep
    • Boost immune system
    • Accelerate recovery from surgery or illnesses
    • Lower blood pressure
    • ...among other benefits.

    On the contrary, our removal from natural environments shows unfortunate ties to mental illnesses and different mood disorders. In research, these tend to be more common in urban areas, and though many factors share the blame, reduced access to nature is a contributing cause (Read further here).

    In addition to this, our removal from natural surroundings has further increased our disconnection from environmental issues, undoubtedly one of the most important problems in today's world. This is why having a nature inspired home / workplace can contribute -in a very natural and almost seamless way- to rebuild and restore bonds with natural environments on a daily basis, thus being beneficial for encouraging environmental care and actions.

    Why is it important to have nature inspired spaces in today's world?

    We are drawn into the elements a modern city has to offer; the increased connectivity, the creativity, innovation, sights, new ideas, delicious food, and so on. However, this immersion in city life has resulted in oblivion and disconnection to nature, which has further transcended in our ways of living and behaving everyday- somewhat unaware of the impact of our daily activities on our natural environments. 

    Our environment today is in a very vulnerable state. Despite the great amounts of information available about this-including solutions that we could all start applying instantly, there is yet a long way to go on encouraging reactions that correspond to the current environmental problems we face. 

    While there are many factors that affect our behaviours towards environment interest, the fact of not having a closer link with something- in this case nature and forests, makes us most likely to not care or not have enough interest about it. This is the reason Forest Homes has engaged in the mission of bringing back that connection to nature in people's everyday life. By providing nature inspired home decor, we expect to see more people connecting, interacting and experiencing nature elements everyday- even when not being able to take a walk on a forest or a natural park. In this way we hope to increase environment appreciation and consciousness about the impact of our actions- with all the benefits this implies both for the wellbeing of our customers as individuals, and for the protection of our environment as a collective. 

    What is special or different about your decor products? 

    Our main objective is to provide our customers nature inspired spaces, so they can experience better living and all the benefits that come from being connected to nature every day.  For us, it is essential that our products enable this daily connection to nature and forests in simple ways that don't require dramatic changes of behaviour so that we can help promote more care for today's environment as described in the previous section.

    We cater principles of emotion-centered design, restorative spaces and urban sustainability to offer decor products that are not only inspired in forests but are positively stimulating for human senses, beautiful, functional and easy the use. We also sustain resource consciousness as a value for our products, preferring sustainable materials and eco-friendly manufacturing.

    Why is some of your natural decoration made of sustainable materials and others not?

    To provide a full sensory experience, we offer a wide range of decor products mostly built in eco-friendly processes and with sustainable materials. We thoroughly study our product composition and manufacturing. Bamboo, pine wood, oak wood, cork, are some of the main components of our range of products. To be able to offer a complete sensorial experience we also offer a small range of products that include plastics that are entirely recyclable, strong, stable and considered non-harmful for human health under normal conditions. However we continue to work closely with artisans to develop more forest inspired home decor products that are made entirely of sustainable materials and manufactured in eco friendly processes, so that one day we can proudly say we only offer sustainable materials in our catalog.

    Where are your decor products developed?

    We support different designers specialised in natural decor from all over the world. We currently work with designers in Asia, South America and Europe that offer beautiful and unique items that sustain home wellbeing. What's more, we continuously look to support more designers that consistently improve the quality and sustainability of the wellbeing spaces we offer to our customers.
