Leopard: The Robotic Office Chair

Leopard is a highly advanced office chair straight from Japan now actually available for real (the concept has been around for a while). Basically it uses unpowered robot technology inspired by the basic principles of human anatomy to sink by 25° when you sit down in it, and rise up as you lean forward. Besides promising awesome comfyness this means that it’ll adjust itself behind your back and wrap around your bum when you lean back (imagine being held in someone’s arms) and then even give you a little push when you want to get up.

Oki and Okamura will sell this chair, meaning it’ll probably show up for us Westerners as well soon, and it’ll be available with both black and white frames. Leather will set you back about $2,500, fabric about $2,100.
