E3 Donut Stool

When you're looking for more activity in the office, the E3 Donut Stool is your ticket to a healthier and more enjoyable work day. We all find ourselves sitting still at our desks for long stretches, but over time that can have an impact on your body. Turn restless energy into something useful and beat boredom with a body-activating stool that gives you more freedom to move.

We designed the Donut to let you lean, stretch, and shift to your heart's content. And its unique cushion shape includes a soft dip that can reduce pressure on your tailbone or glutes and be repositioned as you need. Soothe your back, boost your circulation, and protect against the sorts of injuries that stem from sedentary office work.

Sitting Isn't Stationary

You'll notice the differences made by active sitting once you've had a spin on the Donut's 360 degree seat. The stool's soft cushion angles in any direction from a pivot point underneath the seat, adjusting in tune with your own movements and activating your legs, back, and core while doing so.

If you work at a computer for more than a couple hours, varying your posture is crucial to maintaining health and productivity, which is why it's advised that people switch between sitting in a lumbar-supporting office chair and an active stool throughout the day.

Designed for Comfort & Collaboration

Thanks to the E3 Donut Stool's firm yet flexible cushion and mesh fabric, you'll enjoy a breathable seat with just the right amount of support. The mesh is textured to help grip and keep you stable on the seat cushion even as you shift around.

Curved edging and the Donut Stool's signature center dip keep the pressure off the back of your legs and tailbone, distributing your weight to maximize comfort. And, the 360 degrees of rotation makes collaboration with your colleagues easier than ever.

A Good Fit Anywhere

Made for the office but practical anywhere, the E3 Donut Stool's lightweight design means you don't have to limit yourself to a single room. Take it with you as you go about your daily work. A versatile height range of 24.2" - 30.1" makes it a fit at the kitchen counter or bar (even for shorter users), as well as an excellent companion to living room, dining room, or den furniture.

The Donut is an effective, compact, and posture-supporting seat for anywhere you'd otherwise be stuck standing.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is a "sit-stand stool"?

    A sit-stand stool is a versatile seat that you can use to be more mobile at your desk. Ergonomists recommend that you vary up your posture throughout your day, and don't spend too much time in your chair. But, it can sometimes be difficult to do consistently. A stool will give you something to lean or perch on while taking pressure off your legs and feet, to help you stand more without getting tired.

  2. Can I use this stool work with a height adjustable desk?

    Yes! The E3 Donut goes from 24.2" (at the lowest) to 30.1" (at the highest), giving it the range you need to use it at both sitting and standing heights. It is designed to work alongside our UPLIFT Desks.

  3. I'm a tall user. Will this work for me?

    The E3 Donut Stool is intended for users up to 6'3" tall. It will suit most individuals.

  4. Is this a good replacement for my normal office chair?

    We've designed the E3 to be very comfortable. However, nothing can fully replace having a supportive back and a form-fitting seat. Sit stand stools are intended to supplement more traditional seating, not completely replace it.

  5. Is this similar to your Motion or E7 Stools?

    All of our ergonomic stools are designed to provide unique seating experiences, but the Donut's plush seat features a different design with a center divot that supports the tailbone, which differs from the seats on the Motion and E7. This stool's pivot cap design allows you to move from side to side and front to back, because movement is generated from under the seat and not from the base. Looking for tilt from the base? Give the Motion Stool or E7 Stool a try!

  6. Will my kids fit on this stool?

    Depending on their height, maybe. This stool suits users ranging from 5'1" to 6'3", which means it will fit middle school and high school kids more than it will elementary aged kids (it is a bit tall for most children). But we have some other options that are designed with smaller kids in mind. Check out our line of kids stools here.

  7. Can I use the Donut Stool on carpet? What about hardwood?

    Yes, the E3 Donut Stool is designed to work on both hard and soft flooring, which includes hardwood, concrete, tile, and most types of carpet.

  8. What is the tilt angle of the seat on this stool?

    The tilt angle is 10 degrees per side, left or right.
