Elysium Weightless Chair

By: on September 28, 2016

The Elysium Chair is the result of an equation defining posture and gravitational force. I think that's the math geek way of saying it's reeeeeeeal comfortable. So comfortable, it will simulate weightlessness when you sit it in. Uh, I mean sit in it.

I think I need a break. Maybe a nap in an reclining feat of frictionless technology made with upholstery springs fused to a carbon fiber frame at calibrated tensions and locations that direct calculated support at specific anthropometric sites. Oh, and throw in some viscoelastic foams to add pressure relief and elicit haptic response.

Elysium creator David Hugh says the design achieves perfect ergonomics and weightless comfort by keying into a body state halfway between upright and reclined. At a 25-degree angle, "the body passes through a point of zero gravity where pressure is evenly distributed and shear approaches zero. This results in sensory attenuation which is the principal of Floatation Therapy."

Elysium chairs come covered in your choice of 70 different colors of Scandinavian leather. Word is, regardless of which color choose, one will set you back around $26,000. If the feeling of weightlessness isn't worth a down payment on a house to you, check out the Zero Gravity Recliner for $2,000 to $3,000.
