Ever wanted an aviation chair but had an unappreciative spouse object to putting real aircraft cabin seats--and thousands of buttock impressions--in your home?
Here's one solution: San Diego designer architect Dominique Houriet has designed the "Flyer" chair (above) whose "backward-canted seat offers the sensation of flight -- specifically, takeoff", the New York Times reports.
With a generous width and wide armrests the chair resembles the form of the first class suite on Singapore Airlines combined with the colour of AirAsia X's new lie-flat seats. Houriet was smart enough to design the seat for all ends of the premium passenger scale, obviously. The Times supplies more info:
The frame is slim but strong (41 1/2 inches wide and 30 inches deep), and the seat comes in a choice of fabrics: brindle hide or hand-woven nylon-elastic shock cord.
If it sounds swanky its $5,000 price tag proves your point, but on the upbeat side the chair is not made by Koito.
GE90 engines and vomit stains, for added effect, not included.
