David Hugh’s Elysium is a chair that defies gravity. In the form of perfect ergonomics and soft, feathery comfort, your body is held upright yet reclined. The British inventor and furniture designer Dr David Wickett, has managed to blend art science in his latest creation.
Central to the design is an advanced carbon fibre skeleton that engages perfectly with human form. It also employs patented frictionless technology that works as a virtual cam to move the body with ease, ensuring the body is always in balance. This is reason why the Elysium gives the feeling of zero gravity.
The Elysium is not just sensationally cosy, but luxuriously eye-pleasing, too. It comes in Scandinavian leather in a variety of about 70 different colours. Each chair is handcrafted to perfection at David Hugh’s Cambridge workshop and offers two modes — either in lockable recline or free motion.
