There are three things you absolutely must have before picking up one of Jaanus Osugaar’s unique Accelerator spinning chairs. 1) A strong stomach. 2) Plenty of space in your living room. And 3) A healthy budget for novelty seating. If you can’t already guess from the product shot, including the fact there’s built-in hand straps, the Accelerator chair is designed to spin instead of rock. And we’re not talking spinning as if you were in a barber’s chair. The Accelerator’s offset center design has you spinning like a fallen top, and it will actually take you 6 full rotations to get back to your original sitting position.

The idea behind the chair is to provide a more invigorating experience that energizes and stimulates your mind, unlike a regular rocking chair whose motion is designed to put you to sleep. Is it unique? Most definitely. Is it worth ~$1,700+ (£1,075) plus the cost of an occasional rug cleaning when guests over do it and get sick? Well, that’s your call.
