Kenneth Lylover Surf Chair

Surf Chair

Kenneth Lylover created his Surf Chair for the “Internet Collection” competition at the Scandinavian Furniture Fair recently. It’s easy to see why he managed to nab the Best Product award. The arc-shaped chair has a built-in LCD display, a mouse and keyboard for the user’s lap, and a padded frame for comfort. We think it is a fine idea for couch potatoes who want to go the extra mile with their Net searching or those who work best in a semi-horizontal position.

CES 2008 Non-Gravity Massage May be Uplifting

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: CES, CES 2008, Household

Zero-Gravity ChairHow nice that massages are now readily available for those of us that don’t want to pay someone else to do it. Human Touch says their HT-7450 Zero-Gravity Chair has all the latest tech for backs and feet. Sit down and it will recline in the proper position so that your body will feel less strain from gravity. The chair’s Acupoint Detection System scans you for key pressure points and performs the service with an emphasis on those areas that are particularly stressed out. We like the concept, we are just thinking maybe this is one product you should try before you buy. Some of us get nauseous just thinking about reclining more that we would like. Then there is that $3,999.99 price tag.

Panda Chair Recycles CDs

Panda Chair

Next time you receive those useless CDs from AOL, do what Spanish Designer Belen Hermosa did with his Panda Chair. It was recently unveiled at the International Furniture Fair in Valencia.  We’re not sure about the comfort factor, but the idea is a viable one. If you score enough of the useless discs, you could probably build an entire living room suite, including end tables and ottomans. Then you could recover your patio deck, build furniture for the kids’ treehouse, and start selling items at swap meets. Just you wait, IKEA, you have tentative competition.
