Designed by Cambridge-based firm DavidHugh Ltd, the Elysium is essentially an art installation crossbred with one of those office chairs that makes you feel like you're floating in water.
That zero-g feeling is pulled off by a combination of a lightweight carbon fibre skeleton and a set of joints that are set perfectly in equilibrium. So when you sit down or lie back, making you feel like your floating in the air.
There will be a launch edition of only 20 Elysium chairs made available, and with that £20,000 price tag it's definitely a collector's item for the man or woman who enjoys a luxurious twist to their office furniture.
“Bang & Olufsen offers the perfect synergy with Elysium, as it too combines uncompromising design with incredible performance," says the chair's designer and creator, David Wickett. "Bang & Olufsen and Elysium speak the same visual language that is great to see together. The Knightsbridge Bang & Olufsen showroom is a modern, evocative yet relaxing space where each individual can find their own unique experience of Elysium.”
