Why is it noteworthy?

These spring-loaded components contract when you’re sitting back or reclining, but they expand to give support to your back and neck once you start to lean forward.

Why is it noteworthy?

From the name itself, this chair has a peacock-like shroud that will give a signal to the people around you and also give you a sense of privacy and temporarily put away the noise around you.

Designed by Ali Shoieb, the Nice chair is designed to be a ‘disassembled chair’.  Space-consuming furniture is the bane of tiny modern-day apartments with space constraints. Hence, Shoieb wanted to design a furniture piece that does not occupy too much space and can be assembled and disassembled with ease.

Why is it noteworthy?

The minimal wooden chair can function as an ordinary chair to sit on, or even a rocker that can be moved back and forth. The rounded bottom edges of the Nice chair allow it to rock back and forth, creating a harmonious lull that could guide anyone to fall asleep. On, the other end, you can slide in a tabletop between the ridges on the arms of the chair, transforming it into a convenient space to work in.

What we like

  • Multifunctional furniture design

What we dislike

  • There is no way to stop the chair from rocking while working

The 5° Chair is an office chair that can rotate at 360-degree angles, lean back and forward, and tilt from side to side. The chair was designed by Seoul-based design firm 250 Design and is a comfortable and ergonomic seating option.

Why is it noteworthy?

The chair’s seat plate cozies up to and hugs your hips for support from the bottom, with added cushion for comfort. Similarly, the backrest plate forms the shape of your back to bolster your posture and encourage an upright spine. The 5° Chair’s legs are reinforced in the core with angled wave springs that can tilt in any direction, while the chair’s spindle can lean from side to side, 5 degrees from its center point. The rotatability of the 5° Chair allows it to adjust to your body’s natural movement, offering support from every angle.

What we like

  • Adjusts to your body’s natural movement
  • Embedded wave springs provide the chair with stationary mobility

What we dislike

Designed by Hyeyoung Han and Hanyoung Lee, the Fortune Chair is really a mix between a bean bag, chair, and a pod, and it also happens to look like a fortune cookie. Much like its name suggests, the Fortune Chair is, in fact, inspired by a fortune cookie.

Why is it noteworthy?

Once you crack upon a fortune cookie, which is a pretty exciting process by itself, you’re rewarded with an inspirational little note that provides you a sneak peek into your future or gives you some cliche motto to live by. Although the experience is quite old-school now, there’s no denying that it’s quite fun and amusing as well. And these are the sentiments that the designers wanted to capture in their chairs.

What we like

  • The chair includes a fortune cookie-inspired wooden outer wall, which functions as a covering frame that surrounds the user. This outer wall creates a cozy, comfortable, and private space for the user to sit in

What we dislike

  • The chair may not complement the aesthetics of modern contemporary offices
