Hence, this piece of furniture needs to be not only comfortable but ergonomic, and aesthetic as well. And we’ve curated a collection of chair designs that meet all these criteria! From a task chair that is made using 70% recycled materials to a fortune cookie-inspired wooden work pod – these innovative chair designs are not only a boon to your back, and help you maintain a healthy posture, but are also super comfy to sink into, and will perfectly match the interiors of your modern office. Enjoy.

1. The Coffin Office Chair

Shaped like a coffin, this intriguing-looking wooden chair perfectly represents your emotions for your dead-end corporate job. This chair was designed for those who are completely fed up with their jobs!

Why is it noteworthy?

This conceptual coffin chair captures all the dreaded emotions employees experience throughout their workday. It represents the doom and boredom one feels as they sit through another pointless meeting that could have been an email!

What we like

  • Inspired by Rene Magritte’s painting titled The Balcony (1950)
  • Perfectly captures the feeling of having a dead-end job

What we dislike

  • There’s no cozy cushioning to get comfy in

2.  The Sphere Office Chair

The Sphere Office Chair was designed by Japanese furniture brand Okamura and is a sleek and good-looking office chair made using recycled fishing nets that were salvaged from the ocean.

Why is it noteworthy?

The Sphere Office Chair features a “3D physical fit shell” with a kinematic structure that effortlessly adapts to the contours of the user’s body. This allows the users to sit for long periods of time on the chair without feeling any discomfort or fatigue.

What we like

  • The chair adapts to the contours of the user’s body, making it super comfy to sit for long periods of time

What we dislike

  • The aesthetics of the chair are quite similar to other office chairs on the market

3. The Liberty Ocean Chair

The Liberty Ocean Chair is designed by Humanscale, and as its name signifies, was built using one kilogram of abandoned fishing nets found in the ocean.

Why is it noteworthy?

The Liberty Ocean chair range claims to be “first task chairs made from recycled fishing nets”, and is a brave and commendable effort on the part of Humanscale to tackle the evergrowing issue of ocean plastic.

What we like

  • Claims to be the first task chair made from recycled fishing nets
  • Ergonomic and minimal

What we dislike

  • The aesthetics of the chair are quite similar to other office chairs on the market

4. The Nouhaus Ergo3D

This brilliant high-back seating chair isn’t your average ergonomic chair. It features a 3-segment backrest, dynamic lumbar support, 4D adjustable orbital armrests, and a class-4 hydraulic gas-lift main pillar, and is called the Nouhaus Ergo3D.

Why is it noteworthy?

This high-back chair looks like an interesting modern throne, and features a 3-part backrest that conforms to the shape of your spine, providing you with support and comfort via the company’s unique ‘Just-For-Me’ Lumbar Support System.

What we like

  • Conforms to the shape of your spine
  • The adjustable headrest cushions your cranium through the day

What we dislike

  • No option for personal customization

5. The NEWTRAL MagicH

Called the NEWTRAL MagicH, this intelligent and ergonomic chair features an auto-following backrest, and its partner, the auto-following and adjusting headrest.

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. The chair provides support to your body, irrespective of which position you’re sitting in, offering you the ultimate working experience.

What we like

  • Provides support to your body and avoids injuries

What we dislike

  • The armrests, while highly adjustable, are not removable.

6. The Peacock Chair

Dubbed the Peacock chair, this unique-looking chair is designed to eliminate distractions and noise during work and help employees maintain a better work/life balance.

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. When the peacock’s “feathers” are up, obviously the one sitting on the chair wants to be left alone to focus and work or read or have some sense of peace.

What we like

  • Dampens the noise around you
  • Gives you a sense of privacy

What we dislike

  • There are similar products on the market

7. The Nice Chair

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

8. The 5° Chair

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

  • Does not feature wheels, so isn’t a portable design

9. The Fortune Chair

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

10. uuma

Called uuma, this portable table and chair combo is built from fiberglass and provides the unit with much-need portability and durability. It is a customizable furniture unit that is made up of 4 parts that are modular.

Why is it noteworthy?

With the umma, you can have a comfortable seat that can raise or lower on demand and can be clipped open to reveal a height-adjustable table. This table and chair can then be equally comfortable whether you choose to place it outside or inside in your home office nook. This means, with uuma you can work wherever and whenever you can find the right motivation and creativity you need for your work.

What we like

  • Can be used in multiple settings both indoors and outdoors
  • Highly portable and durable

What we dislike

  • The design may not be very ergonomic or comfortable to work on for long hours

This brilliant ergonomic office chair brings comfort and support, no matter how you sit

As we’ve become more dependent on computers for our way of life, whether for work, school, or entertainment, we’ve also become more sedentary and bound to our chairs. Physical issues such as RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) and CTS (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) have brought to light our less-than-healthy postures when sitting, especially in front of a desk, which, in turn, brought about a new class of ergonomic products, including ergonomic chairs. While the latter do aim to bring proper support to our backs and necks, they often require that the person actually adopt a proper posture, something that unfortunately doesn’t come naturally to most people. Rather than forcing people to adapt to the chair, this innovative ergonomic chair adapts to humans instead, automatically following and adjusting to the person’s body to bring full support, whether they’re sitting upright, leaning forward, or even reclining to rest.

There are plenty of ergonomic chair designs in the market today for workers, gamers, and everyone in between. What most of them have in common is a fixed shape of the backrest meant to support the sitting posture, with cushions for the back and neck to provide some comfort. Unfortunately, these designs presume that the person is already used to sitting correctly, which would ironically make the need for an ergonomic chair pointless. Different people have different sitting styles and some are more comfortable sitting one way over another. Rather than taking sides, NEWTRAL MagicH takes the neutral ground, pardon the pun, to provide proper support that adapts to you, not the other way around.

Ultra Adaptive Full-back Support – NEWTRAL MagicH supports your entire back in any position, reducing stress on your spine by 20%-50%.

Auto-Adjusting Headrest – Their auto-adjusting headrest seamlessly adapts to the contours of your neck, providing optimal support in any position.

The secret behind this seemingly intelligent chair is the auto-following backrest and its partner, the auto-following and adjusting headrest. 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. So whether you’re reclining to take a break, sitting a bit back for a more comfortable working posture, or leaning forward for an intense typing session, NEWTRAL MagicH provides the support your body needs to stay in good working condition and avoid injuries.

Say Goodbye to Leg Discomfort – Relax and stretch your feet during those long work sessions, promoting healthy blood flow and reducing the risk of leg and foot discomfort.

4D Extended Armrest – Are adjustable to your preferred height with a travel length from 5cm to 9cm, allowing you to find the perfect position that suits your needs.

And it doesn’t stop at the back and neck either. The NEWTRAL MagicH Pro includes an ergonomic foldable footrest to also give your legs and feet a break, while also promoting healthy blood flow. The Pro model’s 4D Extended Armrest also helps alleviate fatigue on your elbows, arms, and shoulders by letting you adjust the position of the armrest to your personal comfort. In fact, almost everything about the NEWTRAL MagicH can be adjusted to suit your body and sitting style, including the depth of the seat to the angle of the chair, reclining back as far as 134 degrees for a more comfy rest.

Revitalize Your Workspace – Their detachable tray provides the ideal solution, offering convenience and utility for both work and gaming.

Divided-stress-zone Cushion – This intelligent design ensures that your weight is evenly distributed, alleviating pressure on your thighs and promoting better blood circulation.

But wait, there’s more! NEWTRAL’s detachable laptop table lets you detach from your desk without actually detaching from your work or game. The built-in adjustable laptop stand lets you set up your computer just the way you like it, while holders for phones and tablets put your important apps and contacts within easy reach. There’s even a cup holder to make sure you stay hydrated with your favorite beverage. Why bend over backward to adjust to an ergonomic chair when there’s an ergonomic chair that can adjust to you? With the NEWTRAL MagicH auto-following ergonomic chair, you can say goodbye to pain and discomfort and say hello to healthy productivity, no matter which way you prefer to sit.

This wooden chair uses a geometric trick to draw you into its open embrace

We’ve seen quite a number of chair designs that revolve around wood, a material favored for its natural beauty and sustainability. Most of these involve very hard and solid types of wood like oak, exactly because they are both actually solid and give off the impression of stability. Of course, those aren’t the only types of wood that you can use for furniture, nor do chairs have to look mighty and grand all the time. Take this distinctive-looking chair, for example, one that is almost just “skin and bones,” so to speak. It evokes a sense of lightness and it is also quite lightweight, while still providing a stable seating platform whose very shape seems to invite you to sit and relax under the open skies.

Designer: Anne Brandhøj

Rattan wood is perhaps better known as a type of material that’s woven to create a more decorative surface or to wrap around different parts of a whole. While that’s definitely a good use for it, it isn’t the only use case, either. The rattan stem can also be used as the foundation and skeleton of a piece of furniture, which is what this rattan chair attempts to do. Thankfully, the flexible nature of the material made it easy to bend the solid length of wood into a circular form, something that’s less trivial to accomplish with hardwood.

Beyond the creative use of rattan for almost the entirety of the chair, Eclipse’s biggest pull is its unique and unconventional design. The base and seat itself are nothing but an open box with strips of rattan wrapped around the front and back, leaving the sides open for both viewing and potentially for storage. The most iconic parts, however, are the two vertical circles that arch over the seated person, a design that serves more than just an aesthetic purpose.

Visually, the circles frame the person seating inside, drawing attention to them. The rear circle is also smaller than the front, creating an almost conical shape that tries to draw you into the chair. The circles also make it seem like the open sky is reaching down to embrace whoever is sitting below. The open design, joined by sparse patches of rattan wrapping, provides a more peaceful and inviting atmosphere compared to a full cover that provides more shade but also overshadows the person.

The Eclipse was conceived as a sort of “thinking chair,” one that aims to inspire the mind into deeper thoughts with the open sky and wide areas as the backdrop. Almost ironically, this kind of chair probably wouldn’t survive too long outdoors given its wooden construction and very minimal protection from both sun and rain. It still has that welcoming and relaxing effect indoors, though, especially when used in open or large spaces. Regardless of where it’s placed, it will easily call attention to itself, despite barely having any meat on its body, so to speak.

Top 10 chair designs to grab a cozy, comfy and ergonomic seat in any space

We often underestimate the importance of a great chair. When in reality, we really shouldn’t. We spend the majority of our day sitting on chairs, whether we’re working in our home office, enjoying a meal, or simply sitting and reading a book for leisure! Hence, this piece of furniture needs to be not only comfortable but ergonomic and aesthetic as well. And we’ve curated a collection of chair designs that meet all these criteria! From a wooden chair that transforms into a rocking chair or workdesk to a leaf-inspired outdoor chair/sunbed  – these innovative chair designs are not only a boon to your back and help you maintain a healthy posture, but are also super comfy to sink into and will perfectly match the interiors of your modern homes.

1. Peach Easy Chair

The visually intriguing Peach Easy Chair was created by Annabella Hevesi to introduce and experiment with a kind of mechanical joint. The unique chair features an innovative mechanical joint solution that allows the foam to be shaped in a completely new and refreshing manner.

Why is it noteworthy?

The joint enables the foam to be shaped without cutting or casting – the first method creates a lot of waste, and the second method is quite expensive. Instead, a new ‘tufting’ technique was employed to distort the foam and create the shell out of the chair.

What we like

  • Not only reduces waste but also offers a mechanical connection between the components, eliminating the need for glue

What we dislike

  • The chair offers a slouched posture, which may not be ergonomic for the user

2. The Tone Chair

At first glance, the Tone Chair grabs your attention for a variety of reasons, primarily because it is oh-so-simple in its form, and yet so solid in its character. The Tone Chair was the result of the exploration of a simple metallic tube and bending process on the part of Filipic.

Why is it noteworthy?

Four tubes, and and two pieces of sheet metal were used to build the chair. The two pieces of sheet metal were used to form the seat and the backrest, while the four metallic tubes were utilized to construct the legs of the chair.

What we like

  •  A smooth and linear furniture design whose various components effortlessly merge together
  • Features bright and loud yellow, which adds manifolds of character to the stark and minimal chair

What we dislike

  • The form of the chair can be considered too simple and stark for some
  • Doesn’t look comfortable to sit on for longer durations

3. Nice Chair

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

4. Vale Collection

London-based design firm LAYER designed the ‘Vale’ collection for US furniture brand KFI Studios. The Vale collection is a range of eco-friendly chairs and stool created from recycled PET bottles, and are a protest against the plastic waste that is drowning Earth’s oceans and landfills at an alarming rate.

Why is it noteworthy?

The Vale collection is LAYER and KFI Studio’s eco-friendly solution to this ever-growing issue of plastic waste. In a day and age, where almost 9 million tons of furniture are found in landfills, the Vale collection is a refreshing change and a fine specimen of sustainable furniture.

What we like

  • The elegant-looking chairs and stools feature shells and seats built from a tactile felt material. The tactile material is manufactured from recycled PET bottles, and it is eco-friendly and quite sturdy, durable, and easy to maintain

What we dislike

  • The aesthetics of the chairs and stool are a bit mundane. More details could have been added to them

5. The 6-alloy Chair

Conceptualized by SUNRIU Design, the 6-alloy chair doesn’t look like any of the regular or traditional chairs you see on the market, or anywhere around you. It looks as if a stool and a chair had a love child – resulting in the intriguing-looking 6-alloy chair.

Why is it noteworthy?

Built using aluminum and Piñatex (leather created from pineapple leaf), the 6-alloy chair features an aluminum body, that comprises of three tubes. The three tubes are subtly interlocked together, with two pieces of leather forming the seating section, and a nifty storage section beneath it (or a cute spot for your pet to nap in).

What we like

  • Functions as seating space for your pet and you
  • Made using eco-friendly elements

What we dislike

  • The leather at the bottom of the chair may not fare well to pets who are in the chewing phase.

6. The Conicent Chair

The Conicent Chair takes the simple and humble cone shape and transforms it into an impressive and unique piece of furniture. The chair features a cone with the front half chopped off, with an innovative dropped top that seems to be caving in on itself.

Why is it noteworthy?

The chair features a smaller inverted cone inside that serves as the main surface for sitting. Adding a cushion makes it a comfortable indoor chair, though leaving it bare makes it suitable for outdoor use – making it a versatile chair that can be utilized both indoors and outdoors.

What we like

  •  Made to be comfortable and ergonomic, regardless of your preferred sitting position, thanks to gentle slopes and curves in every direction

What we dislike

  • Space-consuming + bulky design
  • Not a real tangible product

Why is it noteworthy?

If you look at the chair closely, it may remind you of a leaf or an exotic-looking plant. The woven pattern of the chair and its dusky green color were characteristics that Miray picked up from nature.

What we like

  • You can add multiple Orfo chairs to your yard, creating a super cool and chill spot for your family and close friends to hang about in the summer

What we dislike

  • The lack of legs makes it difficult to sit on the chair for longer periods of time

8. The Morph Chair

Designed by Jiung Yun and Minji Kim, the Morph chair was created for ‘quiet contemplation.’ Our daily modern lives can be quite hectic and tiresome. And we need to take a break and simply relax once in a while. The Morph Chair is designed for those moments.

Why is it noteworthy?

The Morph chair was designed for moments of peace when we can take a break, and simply lounge about on it. It attempts to function as a calm space for users to organize their chaotic thoughts and worries and take down their stress a notch or two.

What we like

  • Has a storage section integrated beneath the seat, which can be used to store books and other miscellaneous items

What we dislike

  • Aesthetics can be dull and stark for some people

9. The Blu Dot Port Dining Chair

The Blu Dot Port Dining chair is a comfortable and stylish chair with a sculpted wood seat featuring elegant contours. The well-designed piece of furniture maintains a graceful aesthetic, while also managing to be functional and practical.

Why is it noteworthy?

The dining chair features a shapely and cozy bent plywood and back, which provides enhanced comfort during meal times. It has been equipped with a solid wood frame and legs, which is excellent for interacting with guests and spending time with family

What we like

  • A visually interesting armchair that has been layered with depths of personality and character

What we dislike

  • The Knitty Chair’s aesthetics aren’t for everyone; they’re quite bold and won’t work for those who prefer a simpler and more minimal style

The Morph chair was designed for moments of peace when we can take a break, and simply lounge about on it. It attempts to function as a calm space for users to organize their chaotic thoughts and worries and take down their stress a notch or two.

What we like

  • Has a storage section integrated beneath the seat, which can be used to store books and other miscellaneous items

What we dislike

  • Aesthetics can be dull and stark for some people

5. The Knitty Chair

Designed by Slovenian designer Nika Zupanc, the Knitty Chair is a bulky and chonky armchair that takes inspiration from the large mooring ropes for ships.

Why is it noteworthy?

The huge armchair features a chunky basket-weave design that mimics a knotted rope. The chair has been upholstered in a knitted fabric that features a quilted diamond pattern and is available in 15 different colors.

What we like

  • A visually interesting armchair that has been layered with depths of personality and character

What we dislike

  • The Knitty Chair’s aesthetics aren’t for everyone; they’re quite bold and won’t work for those who prefer a simpler and more minimal style

6. Tailor Armchair

Called the Tailor Armchair, this interesting and uniquely designed armchair also doubles up as a desk!

Why is it noteworthy?

If you want to use it as an armchair, you can simply rest and place your back on the raised panel or plank of plywood that is placed at the center of the chair. The raised panel is further supported by a vertical curved panel. These panels function as the back support, allowing you to comfortably sit back against the armchair. If you wish to use it as a desk, you can instead use the raised panel as a tabletop and fit your legs into the blank spaces created by the intersection of the raised panel with the vertical curved panel. So the same panels of plywood that characterize the design as an armchair also allow it to convert into a desk!

What we like

  • Doubles up as an armchair and a desk
  • Equipped with storage space
  • Clean and minimal aesthetics

What we dislike

  • It’s not a real product yet, still a concept!
  • Space-consuming + bulky design

7. The PINCH Chair

Designed by Medium2 Studio, the PINCH chair gives your traditional and typical plastic chair a fresh and transformative makeover. Plastic stackable chairs are seen almost everywhere these days, and the PINCH chair gives them a much-needed rejuvenation.

Why is it noteworthy?

The traditional plastic chair was given a new form factor with the PINCH chair. By simply pinching and pulling the material (plastic), the designers were able to give an otherwise old-school design a new and improved look. This gives PINCH a uniform form and a visual design language that is extremely intuitive and dynamic.

What we like

  • Gives the plastic chair a new look and form

What we dislike

  • Not a sustainable seating option

8. Loop Chair

Designed by Annabella Hevesi, the Loop Chair is the kind of straightforward and simple furniture piece that instantly makes you fall in love with it, because of how minimally and cleanly it is designed.

Why is it noteworthy?

Built using wood, the Loop Chair has a traditional and archetypical character accentuated with tricky and progressive details that lend an air of character to it. The form of the chair follows a trapezoidal shape elevated by smooth ellipsoid curves, creating a furniture piece that is visually and geometrically intriguing.

What we like

  • The seating section and the vertical backrest have been upholstered separately to increase comfort
  • A flexible fastener/spacer has been incorporated under the seating component

What we dislike

  • It’s still a concept!

9. The Nodding Chair

I love cozying up with a good old book; however, sitting in one position and reading for hours on end can be a curse for my back. Hence this unique product concept was created to function as the perfect chair for bookworms!

Why is it noteworthy?

While rocking chairs are good for relaxation, they’re not always good for floors and, if you’re like me, for our eyes and peace of mind. The designer thought of a new way to have a chair that can be comfortable and still let your body have its range of natural motion while reading, resting, or even writing (if you’re used to that). The Nodding Chair can be tilted forward and backward, letting you make smaller movements that won’t make you too nauseous.

What we like

  • Creates less pressure on the floor so you won’t get marks and scratches
  • Allows the chair to move with you as you occasionally change positions while reading

What we dislike

  • The seat itself doesn’t seem to be that comfortable as it’s just plain wood and there’s no cushion
  • Not everyone may consider the chair comfortable

10. The Hunter Chair

Classic furniture designs are classics for a reason, they’ve withstood the test of time, cementing their value and functionality as pieces that will never truly go out of style. One such design is the Hunter Chair by Torbjørn Afdal. Designed in 1960, the Hunter Chair is Afdal’s version of the “hunting chair,” a kind of seating that was quite popular during those times. And Eikund has brought the Hunter Chair to life once again!

Why is it noteworthy?

The Norwegian furniture brand decided to recreate and relaunch the Hunter Chair, an excellent specimen of classic Norwegian furniture. The Hunter Chair is considered a modern-day classic.

What we like

  • Features solid cast brass buckles, organically tanned leather, precise edge stitching details, and perfectly smooth transitions of wood
  • Gives a classic design a fresh makeover

What we dislike

  • People may prefer the original to the newer version. They may not approve of the new makeover

Conical chair gives you a majestic seat whether indoors or outdoors

Chairs need to be stable and comfortable, but beyond these two critical requirements, everything else is pretty much fair game. From materials to forms, there is a lot of variation possible, which has given rise to a great number of chair designs, from the most minimalist to the most sophisticated. You don’t always have to go overboard, though, when trying to come up with a distinctive design for a memorable chair. This one, for example, starts out with a simple geometric shape that evolves into something with its own personality, almost resembling an exquisite yet subtle throne that you can sit on, whether relaxing in the castle that is your home or basking under the glory of the sun in your backyard.

Designer: Matias Ferrari

It’s easy to underestimate the value that simple shapes can provide, especially when there’s so much attention paid to elaborate and complex forms, contours, and colors. Even minimalist designs sometimes pile on multiple elements, straddling the fine line that divides minimalism and everything else. There is, however, an elegant beauty to simpler forms that diverge little from their base geometries, such as the Conicent Chair concept that elevates a cone into a majestic piece of furniture.

The design takes a simple cone with its front half chopped off and then makes the top drop inside, almost like caving in on itself. This creates what looks like a smaller inverted cone inside that serves as the main surface for sitting. Adding a cushion makes it a comfortable indoor chair, though leaving it bare makes it suitable for outdoor use.

The semi-circle shape of the chair’s base gives it enough stability, but a hollow trapezoidal structure can be added underneath for support. This can be made from a different material or in a different color from the chair, such as finished wood, to give a bit of chromatic contrast. A better material has to be chosen if the Conicent chair will be made for outdoor use.

The chair’s wide base that gracefully tapers toward the top helps lead the viewer’s eyes to the one sitting on it, an effect that is widely used for giving focus to prominent people, like royals on a throne. Unlike a throne, however, the Conicent Chair is made to be comfortable and ergonomic, regardless of your preferred sitting position, thanks to gentle slopes and curves in every direction. With just a cone and, optionally, a trapezoid, this chair concept offers a simple yet elegant piece of furniture that will make you look like royalty and maybe even feel like it.

Top 5 chair designs to unwind on after a long day at work

We often underestimate the importance of a great chair. When in reality we really shouldn’t. We spend the majority of our day sitting on chairs, whether we’re working in our home office, enjoying a meal, or simply sitting and reading a book for leisure! Hence, this piece of furniture needs to be not only comfortable but ergonomic, and aesthetic as well. And we’ve curated a collection of chair designs that meet all these criteria! From a minimalist wooden armchair that doubles up as a desk to an armchair inspired by the huge mooring ropes used for ships – these innovative chair designs are not only a boon to your back, and help you maintain a healthy posture, but are also super comfy to sink into, and will perfectly match the interiors of your modern homes.

1. The Flow Single Sofa

SUNRUI designed this rather minimal and chic-looking armchair as a part of the FLOW Collection. As the name of the collection hints, the armchair is called the Flow Single Sofa. If you look closely at the chair, it quite literally looks like a Queen’s Chair.

Why is it noteworthy?

The sofa has a rather bulky and space-consuming form, although its structure has been designed quite elegantly and smartly, which somehow downplays the stoicness of the sofa. What also imparts the single sofa with sophisticated air are its spiral armrests. The spiral armrests add an interesting and artistic element to the sofa, and also quite amusingly resemble the Ionic Order. The Ionic Order is one of the orders of classic architecture. It is defined by twin volutes or spiral scrolls, such as the ones we can see in the Flow Sofa.

What we like

  • Meets the needs of humans and pets alike
  • Creates a shared space, where the owner and cat, can spend some quality time together

What we dislike

  • It’s still a concept!
  • If your pet pees or poops inside the armrests, it could be difficult to clean up

2. The Knitty Chair

Designed by Slovenian designer Nika Zupanc, the Knitty Chair is a bulky and chonky armchair that takes inspiration from the large mooring ropes for ships.

Why is it noteworthy?

The huge armchair features a chunky basket-weave design that mimics a knotted rope. The chair has been upholstered in a knitted fabric that features a quilted diamond pattern and is available in 15 different colors.

What we like

  • A visually interesting armchair that has been layered with depths of personality and character

What we dislike

  • The Knitty Chair’s aesthetics aren’t for everyone, they’re quite bold, and won’t work for those who prefer a more simpler and minimal style

3. Sharing Joy

Rather aptly titled ‘Sharing Joy’, this award-winning chair comes with a side table for humans to place their books and cups of tea/coffee on, and a crawl space for cats to casually lounge in (complete with a suspended toy for them to play with).

Why is it noteworthy?

What I personally love about Sharing Joy is that it subscribes to a broader vision of what lounging is and who can ‘lounge’. Designed for humans and cats to cozy up in, the chair comes with a hollow, oblong backrest that’s perfectly sized for an adult cat (or a tiny dog) to crawl into and laze around in. Moreover, the idea of having the human and pet lounging together against each other sounds like absolute perfection. 10/10 will give you the happiness hormones.

What we like

  • The chair sports a minimalist aesthetic that fits in most contemporary homes

What we dislike

  • The little space reserved for your pet doesn’t look too comfy

4. Tailor Armchair

Designed by SUNRIU Design, what makes the Tailor armchair super interesting, and a rather unique design is that it can be used as an armchair and a desk.

Why is it noteworthy?

If you want to use it as an armchair, you can simply rest and place your back on the raised panel or plank of plywood that is placed at the center of the chair. The raised panel is further supported by a vertical curved panel. These panels function as the back support, allowing you to comfortably sit back against the armchair. If you wish to use it as a desk, you can instead use the raised panel as a tabletop, and fit your legs into the blank spaces created by the intersection of the raised panel with the vertical curved panel. So the same panels of plywood that characterize the design as an armchair, also allow it to convert into a desk!

What we like

  • Doubles up as an armchair and a desk
  • Equipped with storage space

What we dislike

  • It’s not a real product yet, still a concept!

5. The Nodding Chair

As someone who loves to read, and read for long periods of time, I know that wooden chairs are the least comfortable ones to sit on while finishing a good book. And I’ve also tried to read while on a regular rocking chair and that made me dizzy since the constant big movements are a bit too much for my poor eyes. But staying put in a chair can still be uncomfortable and you need some type of motion while you’re reading. This product concept seems to be the perfect one for bookworms like me.

Why is it noteworthy?

While rocking chairs are good for relaxation, they’re not always good for floors and if you’re like me, for our eyes and peace of mind. The designer thought of a new way to have a chair that can be comfortable and still let your body have its range of natural motion while reading, resting, or even writing (if you’re used to that). The Nodding Chair can be tilted forward and backward, letting you make smaller movements that won’t make you too nauseous.

What we like

  • Creates less pressure on the floor so you won’t get marks and scratches
  • Allows the chair to move with you as you occasionally change positions while reading

What we dislike

  • The seat itself doesn’t seem to be that comfortable as it’s just plain wood and there’s no cushion

Seat and relax anywhere with this Origami-inspired foldable chair and ottoman

Although we have settled down in cities and residential areas, we have ironically become a little bit more nomadic these days in terms of our lifestyles. Not only is travel a staple of daily life, we also often find ourselves sitting down somewhere, either to rest or to resume work. Unfortunately, you won’t find seats everywhere, let alone ergonomic ones that will let you sit in comfort. There might even be instances where you don’t have enough chairs at home to accommodate unexpected but welcome guests. In times like those, a foldable chair would be a practical solution, and this rather unconventional design offers not only a space saving-seat but also a piece of furniture that you can conveniently carry anywhere, like a foldable umbrella.

Instantly deploys.

Perhaps more than other kinds of furniture, seats like chairs, stools, and ottomans have to be extra stable in order to safely support people sitting on them. The requirements of stability and comfort are often expressed in terms of rigidity and at the cost of flexibility. That is why you’ll rarely find foldable chairs that check all the right boxes, making the Foldable Lander a wonder of design and engineering. Inspired by the lightweight and compact design of the Apollo 11 Lunar Lander as well as the material integrity of Origami techniques, this foldable chair and foldable table/ottoman offer a unique and convenient way to take a seat anywhere, whether it’s for fun or for work.

When in its collapsed form, the Foldable Lander looks almost like a slightly bulky foldable umbrella. Thanks to that design and its light 1.3 kg (2.8 lbs) weight, it is possible to carry the chair with you anywhere or stash it in a bag or in the car for longer travel times. In just 5 seconds, however, that folded structure deploys into a low chair or an ottoman that can double as a low table, and it takes half a minute only to fold it back again so that you can quickly dash to your next destination.

It’s that transforming design that makes the Foldable Lander an ideal companion anywhere you go, whether it’s to relax outdoors or to quickly drop down for a brief period of work. In fact, Foldable Lander is also ideal for living spaces where there’s not enough room for permanent chairs. You can bring the Chair and Ottoman pair anywhere you go and have a lounge or work area ready in just seconds.

What makes the Foldable Lander even more special is a design that focuses not only on functionality but also on aesthetics and sustainability. The materials used, like Aviation Aluminum and 900D Oxford Cloth, are durable and environment-friendly. From the sandblasted matte texture to the intricate machine embroidery to the specialized mold textures, each step of the Foldable Lander’s production process demonstrates a high level of craftsmanship and acute attention to detail. For only $99, the Foldable Lander Chair or Table/Ottoman delivers a well-designed and ingenious foldable piece of furniture that will let you sit down and enjoy life wherever it takes you, whether in the great outdoors or even just outside your balcony.
