Further proving you don't have to be in orbit to be weightless, the Gravity Chair from Norwegian baby products maker Stokke can sit upright as an office chair, function as a rocker, and lean way back for that serious contemplation your boss told you to stop doing. See it in its variety of unusual permutations, after the jump.

The chair is available in a variety of fabrics and finishes, but all that versatility in inclination from steep to flat will cost you a steep $2310, if you're so inclined.

DISCUSSION

I'm amused by the way everyone's drooling over this as if it's new — it actually dates back to the early 1980s(!); see http://www.opsvik.no/index.asp?page… for some notes from the designer (plus animations).

Having had a pair of Gravity(s) at home for over ten years, can confirm that they are extremely (a) distinctive, (b) comfortable, and (c) expensive. [BTW: they're even MORE expensive if you get them covered in fancy non-Stokke fabrics, such as Alcantara ...] [OTOH, FWIW: eBay often has good used examples at less scary prices.]

w.r.t. specific comments above:

* iceberg, r55741, auger282, re impaling people: I'm afraid not :-) [in any case, I'm with smirkinghammer on that]

* barkingart, Grifter, re cats: on the other hand, I'm afraid that's something you do need to watch out for

* auger282, deusdiabolus, re space: yep, they do take up quite a bit of room — probably 6' front-to-back for their full range of positions

* HitScan, Penchurn, re stability: the wooden legs provide some degree of flex/give, which can be somewhat disconcerting at first, but they're actually incredibly stable — the design is all about balance — though things can go slightly roller-coaster if the cat jumps up onto you in the reclined positions!

* msg007: good luck!
