This is a UFO. No, not an unidentified flying object that may or may not be of alien origin, but an Unidentified Furniture Object that’s definitely from a terrestrial source. Which, we guess, makes it disappointing to alien conspiracy theorists, albeit intriguing to everyone else.
A rocking lounge chair, it sports a unique design that touches just a single point on the ground. A stabilizing mass fulcrum on that single contact point allows it to not just rock back and forth like regular rocking chairs, but also spin, pivot, and swivel side to side, making for a great chair to change up your lounging experience, apart from being a veritable playground toy.
The UFO has a shape inspired by space capsules, so you can feel like you’re nested inside one while chilling in its seat. We’re not sure how comfortable the darn thing is, but it sure looks utterly relaxing. It’s quite spacious, too, so you can plop down in a lounge-style position to do some reading or curl up to take a comfortable nap. Do note, it’s heavy at 234 pounds, so this is the kind of furniture you’ll want to put in a permanent spot rather than regularly move around.
Construction is carbon fiber for the frame and the single-piece body, with the seat upholstered in plush leather. It has a cushion cut in memory foam that’s cobbled together in varying densities to achieve an ideal ergonomic form.
Available from IT One Off, the UFO rocking chair is priced at $9,000.
