Slump is a fabric-formed concrete stool, calling attention to sitting rituals and prescribed notions of physical health. Over centuries, Western bodies have fallen out of touch with the act of squatting. Slump asks humans to recondition their bodies to begin squatting more freely again. The stool’s material weight and arched form assure a sense of grounding, wherever it lives.
Squatting is a resting position humans easily assume from birth, but lose from lack of practice. The squat position offers benefits for spine alignment, chronic pain, mobility, joint lubrication, productivity, and life span.
