This Is The Most Fun I've Ever Had Sitting In A Chair

The future is vibrant. The future is kinetic. The future is a chair that spins around when you sit on it. The future is incredible.


The Problem With The Chair

“A Chair is a difficult object. A skyscraper is almost easier.” — Mies van der Rohe. Van der Rohe, as with Eames, Gehry, Hadid, Libeskind, Corbusier, and Breuer: if they have designed a big building, chances are they have designed a thing on which to sit.


A $45,000 Lounger That Automatically Turns To Track The Sun

It’s often said the world isn’t fair, and nowhere is that more obvious than when you’re sprawled out on a lounger trying to soak up a little sun, and it won’t stop moving across the afternoon sky. You can write all the angry letters to Neil deGrasse Tyson you want, but the only solution to the problem (besides getting up and moving) is this $US45,000 lounge chair from Remmus that automatically rotates so you’re always getting a full blast of sun.


A Saddle-Inspired Chair Lets You Rustle Up Some Relaxation

It’s not exactly going to disrupt the furniture industry as we know it, but designer Christian Sjöström might be onto something with this unique flexible chair inspired by saddles that facilitates several different seating positions. If it’s good enough for a cowboy, it has to be good enough for a desk jockey, right?


Clever Chairs Stack Horizontally So You Don't Need To Lift A Thing

Filling a venue with temporary seating is a time-consuming process — both during setup and take down — since it requires heavy chairs to be unstacked and then stacked again. But the designers at Seoul-based Centimeter Studio realised there was a better way. Their Sleeed chairs slide together and stack horizontally, so a whole row of them can be compressed like a bunch of nesting shopping carts.


This Pair Of Bionic Pants Is A Chair That You Wear

Sitting won’t kill you. It’s actually great, and important! And for some people, like assembly line workers, not having a chair to sit in can actually pose a health hazard. That’s why Noonee developed the Chairless Chair, a chair you can wear.


Watch Charles And Ray Eames Debut Their Most Famous Chair On TV In 1956

Charles and Ray Eames were the archetypal design power couple, who each brought their own distinct kind of creative genius to the personal and professional partnership. When they visited NBC’s daytime Home show in 1956 to debut their (now-iconic) eponymous lounge, Charles introduced themselves thusly: “Ray is a painter. I am an architect.” Host Arlene Francis has a slightly different take: “Almost always when there is a successful man, there is a very interesting and able woman behind him.”


This Stackable Wire Chair Is Beautifully Simple

Sometimes, simplicity can make an already wonderful idea better. In this case, designer Daniel Lau has stripped the concept of the average stacking chair right back to — quite literally — its wireframe. And the result is beautiful.


A Twisted Mobius Chair Provides An Infinite Place To Sit

Do you remember the first time you were introduced to a mobius strip and its never-ending looped surface? It was probably during grade school science, and it probably made you rethink everything you knew about the world, the same way this Mobius Chair by Takeshi Miyakawa will make you rethink everything you know about sitting.


Good News! Sitting Won't Kill You After All

Sitting is undeniably one of the comfiest ways to arrange your body. Almost as good as lounging, really, and just short of “dangling worry-free from hammock”. But it has acquired a very bad rap over the past few years. A bad rap it doesn’t quite deserve.
