Designed by Karim Rashid in collaboration with Raynor Contract, the segmented Chakra Chair is designed to focus on the body’s pressure points. According to Wikipedia, in Indian medicine chakras are said to be force centers or vortices of energy in the human body, with each person having seven major chakras. So that probably explains why the seat on the Chakra Chair is broken up into seven different segments, though it also looks kind of cool.
There’s no word on when or for how much the Chakra Chair might be available for sale since the Raynor Contract website is still under construction, but it was recently on display at the NeoCon show in Chicago, so functional prototypes at least exist.
