We spend a lot of time trying to perfect our desks but really you should be focused on finding the right chair. After all, you’ll end up sitting there more than you think. We recommend Herman Miller’s Aereon chairs as a great place to get started. But if you’re looking to go next-level, a British inventor and designer by the name of David Wickett may have just created the ultimate chair. With just 20 handmade units available and a $26,000 price tag, it’s a substantial investment but worth seeing in action:

Dr. Wickett is leveraging his background in bioengineering to create a carbon fiber masterpiece that has gesture controls and unmatched support for your back. Much like memory foam, the skeleton beneath the hand-stitched leather contours exactly to your body as the chair reclines to recreate an anti-gravity experience. The optical sensor detects different hand movements and automatically raises or lowers the chair. Interested? The Elysium Chair is on display at the Bang and Olufsen showroom in England. You can learn more by visiting the official product page.

The unique feeling of being held in Elysium is the result of careful layering of ergonomically engineered structures. Central to the design is an advanced carbon fiber skeleton that engages perfect with human form. Traditional upholstery springs are fused to the carbon fiber at precise tensions and in precise locations to focus supper on specific anthropometric sites.
