With a compact central column and lightweight air-filled domes, Ballo is an imaginative take on traditional ball chairs, supporting flexibility and freedom of movement. Available in a variety of vibrant colors, Ballo has a dynamic nature that allows it to integrate into a wide range of environments.

Meaning “to dance” in Italian, Ballo conjures a sense of movement, fluidity and grace. The ultimate multipurpose stool, Ballo is the perfect partner for the modern workspace.

"Ballo was inspired by the exercise ball, but it’s more fun. I wanted to create a stool that would bring a playful aesthetic to any environment, while encouraging healthy movement." Don Chadwick, Designer
