I want I want: Pretty balls


When I used to work in an office, I was routinely ridiculed for two things. My Do Not Disturb hat (a paper hat with, duh, Do Not Disturb scrawled on it for when I was deep in thought reading Easy Living doing fashion trip budgets) and sitting on a ball. Yep, I had an exercise ball as my chair. Sure it used to roll around the department crashing into the interns but it was super comfy. And now I have one at home as my office chair. But what I’d really love is a fun ball like Sarah Lerfel’s – maybe an Eley Kishimoto ball or a Mariko Mori polka dot ball. Or a psychedelic Patternity ball. Are there other snazzy exercise balls out there? And if not, why not…?

    A Swiss ball and 'Do Not Disturb' hat, that sounds like my ideal office accessories, no joke!

    ba, this made me laugh so much! with you, of course. the hat is absolute genius, all I have are flapping hands and a sharp tongue if someone approaches me when I'm in deep thought. x

    I'm with you on Mariko Mori – do you know if she's exhibiting in London again soon ?

    I have been searching the web for the fun ball. But I can't find it.

    Any tips?

    Nixdminx, no idea re Mariko Mori but I'm doubtful. Maybe we need to lobby some galleries?

    Anonymous, alas no idea. Apart from maybe Colette?
