Someone Created A Chair For People Who Love To Sit Cross-Legged At Their Desk
The Soul Seat has a platform and perch so you can comfortably sit cross-legged on it
Designer and founder, Pack Matthews, was frustrated with how traditional chairs left him in pain and limited the amount of sitting positions he could change to while working at the computer.
According to their website, he collaborated with a few friends and they came up with a design so unique, it is even registered in the US Patent Office.
The Soul Seat is designed to alleviate pain and muscle tightness
The chair helps correct your posture, as sitting on its special design "tilts the pelvis forward, opens the hips, and lets the spine align to a comfortable, neutral position".
Having practised yoga himself, Matthews said he designed the chair with yogis in mind as one of the target groups.
Being comfortable sitting on the floor is one of the fundamental ideas behind this chair that was purposely designed with no arms or back.
The Soul Seat is already getting Malaysians excited and it's not even available here yet!
A local Twitter user under the handle @AzyanDraws shared about this seat a few days ago, and it has since garnered over 40,000 retweets!
"For those who love to sit cross-legged, I have found the perfect chair for you," she wrote.
Malaysians in the replies thread were excited to have a chair that finally meets their needs.
Someone replied that she broke her office chair because she liked to sit cross-legged on it.
"Is there a chair like this in Malaysia yet?" she wondered.
Meanwhile, this netizen said she was reported to the human resources (HR) department for sitting cross-legged at work because, she later deduced, it looked improper.
However, The Soul Seats come with a hefty price tag
The chairs are currently being sold for USD875 (RM3,610), and with the more luxurious wooden legs, they would cost USD1,200 (RM4,950).
