Having experienced the difficulty of sitting for any length of time at floor level Colin Steele designed and created a meditation stool. From a simple and basic design it blossomed into a bench offering 3 sitting heights and two classical meditation postures, using magnets to secure the legs for cross-leg and kneeling.
What started as an exercise to overcome a personal challenge has developed into a commercial venture. Black Dragon Seats was registered as a business in 2004 by Colin Steele. In 2014 Black Dragon Seats became a registered company. Registered Design # 332775, Intellectual Property, Australia. Together Colin Steele and Karen Bell operate Black Dragon Seats from premises with factory, showroom and office in Melbourne Australia.
