Chair-bsed is Ergonomic and Eye-Catching

Chair-bsed is an ergonomic chair designed to exactly mimic the shape of the spine. The chair was designed by Anastasiya Gavrilova to be both eye-catching and comfortable.

Chair-bsed is eye-catching in that not only is it shaped like a spinal cord, but it is designed to look like one too. The chair's back is made up of individual vertebrae, with the headrest replaced with a neck rest. The chair doesn't look very soft or comfortable, but that is the whole point. Gavrilova's design provides spinal support first and foremost. Sitting on this chair for hours on end may not be as comfortable as crashing out on a Laz-E-Boy, but it will be better for you in the long run.

Furniture companies are focusing more and more on ergonomic designs as more people join the office workforce. A spinal column chair like Chair-bsed may very well be the future of furniture.
