In every house with central heating hangs an expansion vessel that needs replacement in the course of time. With a few simple acts the ‘Flocomachine’ transforms the old vessel into a cheeky little stool: The FLOCO. Nothing is added or removed. The top gets cut off and is mounted under the vessel as base. The exposed rubber expansion ball becomes the seat. By means of a valve, the firmness of the seat is easily adjustable.
Jeroen Wesselink consciously involves the customer in the production process: by making the owner put in an effort to start the machine, a personal connection between the customer and the product is brought about.
The Floco is a successful alternative to the ‘traditional’ sitting. The ball triggers continuous posture correction as you continuously move. These slight movements help the back to stay pliable, and train the pelvic floor muscles. The Floco is gain a in the classroom, at home or at work.
