Designer Agata Nowak created an unusual office chair that helps users disconnect from technology. For many people, the majority of their work can be done remotely with the aid of their smartphone. While this kind of mobile technology has greatly improved our capacity for work, it has also made it more difficult for us to disengage.
The 'Offline Chair' makes it easier for users to take a digital detox, by forcing them to disconnect from technology. The comfy chair is designed to break our addiction to smartphones by forcing the user to put their device inside a specially made pocket. This pocket is covered in a special fabric that helps block all mobile and Wi-Fi signals. Once the user has disengaged from their smartphone, they can enjoy relaxing in the super soft office chair.
For those who find themselves unable to take a break from the online world, this chair is a great way to cultivate a few minutes of peace and quiet.
