Zero Gravity Within Reach

Power nap anyone?

Balance-Chair

We all remember the kid at school that could tilt his chair back at impossible angle without tippling over backwards. Well here’s an office chair that lets you do the same thing, just without endangering the back of your head. Recline, rock and even get some work done in the gravity balance chair, which provides a wide range of seating options.

The gravity balance is fully reclined. Your legs can be elevated above your head, and the feeling of floating free of gravity should be amazing.

The legs are bent in such a way as to feature three flat planes, so you can recline, incline or lay flat, simply by shifting your body weight. The integrated footrest also doubles as a kneeler so you can be comfortable in the forward position.

The building could be created using inflatables made of white antibacterial nylon that are placed around the exterior of an ordinary office building.

We all dream of cool offices, but most of us only get as far as customising our desk area with a few photos and a gadget or two. But check out video social networking company Web.tv’s awesome offices. Located in Turkey, the sprawling building hosts over 200 employees and offers a range of stations for any kind of mood, be it social, relaxing, or a quiet spot to focus.

Since work is where we spend a large portion of our day, Web.tv decided to make it a fun place to be, with themed offices that are caves, ski lifts, a sail boat, a stage, bar, café, you name it. Scroll on and be amazed.

The stage space allows workers to enjoy their hobbies like playing in a band, staging short plays, reciting poetry.
