These futuristic seating examples range from flexible fiber loungers to connected airport chairs that help travelers power up their mobile devices. When it comes to traditional seating, a balance between style and comfort is key but these futuristic examples push design boundaries further than the common chair or sofa.

They include eco bench designs -- infused with built-in planters -- and moon-shaped chaise loungers that are collapsible and easy to customize and arrange in a myriad of ways. Designed with aesthetics and function in mind, these futuristic seating examples also include metal couches that feature 3D-printed parts along with private office pods that are perfect for on-the-go professionals.

Other favorites include flexible fiber seats that are made with innovative textiles and outdoor seating solutions that encourage sustainability with the help of reclaimed materials.
