A Laptop Chair to Die For

Designed by Manuel Saez for Humanscale, a popular manufacturer of ergonomic office furniture, the daybed is what I would call the ultimate chair for lazy, laptop-using Web surfers. I mean, look at this thing! It looks so comfortable, I doubt anyone sitting in it would ever want to get up, even after several hours of intensive Web surfing. However, the design of the chair definitely looks like it could prevent unhealthy postures, particularly those adopted when using a laptop. With the upcoming Star Trek Movie on our doorstep, it looks like it could fit in somewhere aboard the enterprise. Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on pricing or availability, but my guess is that as most Humanscale furniture, it’s going to be pretty damn expensive.

  1. It reminds of the futuristic scenario painted by the animated movie Wall-E…a couple of years on that chair and I would almost surely be considerably larger and I would’ve unlearned how to walk!?

  3. Hmm… it doesn't look very adjustable… I mean, I'd want to be able to vary the amount it leans back (i.e. the angle of the back relative to the seat, rather than just rotating the whole thing back and forth), etc

  5. I'm missing the support for the elbows and underarms!

    In an ergonomic view you should always have support for a relaxed underarm from the elbow!

    Though I have to say that my "me want"-nerve tingles! ;P

  7. There are lot of ergonomic defects.
    1. No hand rest.
    2. Laptop positioning to the eye level is not there. ( Simple wireless keyboard, mouse must be used for any laptop for a good ergonomic position.
    3. Legs are supposed to take part of body weight in a good sitting position to avoid back problems.
    Lot more. But no time for now.
