The Oyster Meditation Seat, winner of Best of Year in Interior Design Magazine for 2023, is the result of a collaboration between Oyster Studio Furniture and renowned exercise physiologist, Jesse Schwartzman, MS, RD, ACSM CPT. Together, we've designed this seat to help you achieve the perfect posture.

By stacking the head, shoulders, and hips in a way that allows for stable, natural upper-back extension and head alignment, our seat helps you maintain a comfortable and healthy sitting position. Unlike traditional seating options that can cause pulling and pushing forces on the sacrum and lower back, our seat takes advantage of external hip rotation stabilizing forces on the trunk, ensuring your comfort and well-being.

We've incorporated a gap under the thigh that creates one point of contact on the shin and ankle, which allows for freedom of movement and airflow while preventing a cramped sensation. Plus, with the knees positioned below the hips, the hips can externally rotate, so the lumbar spine keeps its natural optimal curve.

Our seat provides your SITS bones with a soft but firm base of support, preventing a sagging pelvis that can cause stress and pain over time – unlike sitting on a yoga ball. The seat's shape and size allow you to explore other archetypal postures as well.

This seat is optimized for meditation, whether sitting cross-legged or backless with feet on the floor. You can sit for extended meditation and sitting sessions more than one hour with minimal stress or discomfort on standing. It is a great choice for people with reduced flexibility in their hips where traditional seating or sitting on the floor is simply not possible.

Proudly designed and made in our Westhampton Beach studio.
