These office chairs are crafted from old military aircraft ejector seats – and they are awesome.
The guys over at Motoart took this seat from an authentic Vietnam-era F-4 fighter jet, and turned it into a cushy, padded desk chair.
Feel the full force of Mastodon on your butt with the MUR-01 rocking chair from Irisohyama. The built-in 8.5-watt 2.1 speaker system will assault your body with sound. Or will it just massage your body? How loud is an 8.5-watt speaker system anyway?
Perfect for lighting up your drab living space, these Léon and Max chairs from French designer Philippe Boulet light up using color-changing RGB LEDs inside the seats, backs, and armrests. And best of all, they’re not tacky in the least.
Ever wonder how it would feel like to lie on a cushion of a magnetic field? Wonder no more. British company Hoverit has released The Lounger, which is so straight out of RPGs and scifi that I can’t bring myself to call it furniture.
Do you think that there are a lot of people who are just dying to sit inside a speaker? The makers of the Sonic Chair think so. It has 2-way speakers, a subwoofer, and the chair itself is a “sound membrane”.
Furniture makers Varier are offering space-age Zen goodness in the form of the limited edition Gravity Balans recliner. Varier claims that the Gravity Balans’ fully reclined position is “probably the closest you will get to zero gravity”, because in it one ends up in a position where the feet are higher than the heart.
This wild piece of modern furniture may look like an abstract shape from the mind of its creator, but it’s actually been precisely engineered from a 3-dimensional waveform plot of a brief audio clip.
To make his Sound/Chair, designer Matthew Plummer-Fernandez started with a 3D plot based on the volume, time and frequency of a short piece of audio.
Let me set one thing straight here. The guys who designed this furniture clearly had no inspiration from any 1980s dot-munching arcade game. Nor does the name “Pouf-Man” have any similarity to the name “Pac-Man”. It’s all on the up-and-up, you see.
The RoboStool is a homemade robotic footstool that’s ready and willing to support your tired tootsies whenever you summon it. It’s a little reminiscent of the Take A Seat robotic chair but differs in that it uses 3 different modes of control.
The “take a seat” chair is a robotic chair that follows you around! The user has a library card embedded with an RFID chip, which the chairs use to find and follow their target. Also, it’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.
Got a few thousand spare compact discs lying around? Designer Belen Hermosa apparently had a few spare CDs and created this funky modern chair out of them.
For some reason, I’m guessing it’s not the world’s most comfortable chair, but it sure beats sitting on a bunch of 8-track tapes.
Now you can have the dumb but lovable dad from The Simpsons take up residence on your desk with this fun Homer Simpson USB Lamp. But just like its namesake, the light is a bit of a dim bulb, so don’t expect to light up an entire room with it.
Do you tend to hunch over whenever you’re working at your computer? This oddity from Japan is designed to help correct this bad behavior by serving up an alert if you’re sitting (or standing?) improperly.
All I know is that you wear it around your neck, and when you start to slouch, it’ll correct you with an audible alarm.
