    • A stool is another iteration of a standard chair. It requires more active sitting from the user and therefore there is more emphasis placed on posture since there is no back support. It can also be used as a means to reach higher things by using it as support. Stools come in a variety of shapes and sizes, some will have minor back support, and some will be taller than others. Different places use stools, some examples are restaurants, bars, and laboratories.
