There's a new chair on the market designed by Lund and Paarmann called the Lobster Chair and it looks pretty smashing.

I'm a sucker for nice chairs for some reason. I was "this close" to buying a ball chair this weekend but I held off to take some measurements first to see if it would actually get up my staircase.

Sadly, my staircase is 1" too narrow and the ball chair will not fit. I still might get it though and just hope my staircase magically widens itself for the chair. I've been eying The Eames lounger now for about an eon and everytime I see it I want it.

I am also in need of a good egg chair so if you're tossing yours out, I'll take it.

Could that ball chair fit through a window upstairs? COULD THE BALL CHAIR FIT THROUGH A WINDOW UPSTAIRS? I SAID! Because if it could, we could rig up a cantalevered pulley system, and haul that fucker right on up there. Wouldn't that be something? We could haul up the ball chair and drink whiskey.

Nope. It's a dashing and smashing idea, but nope. The skylights are too small. AARRGH you make me so angry. I am, however, looking into building a little deck up there and if that's the case,then the door that gets installed will be wide enough for the fugger to fit through. Major renovation for a ball chair. Excessive perhaps? Indeed. Worth it though. Yeah...that's what I'm going to do.

Hi there

I'm writing you from Portugal, about the lobster chair

I got crushed by the chair, but i can't find the price, do you have any notion about it?

YOU GOT CRUSHED!? I hope you're okay! HA ha. I have a crush on that chair too but sadly, I don't have really any information on how much it is. It's available in Norway, Sweden and Denmark I think.

i just got a quote from the designer/manufacturer and the lobster chair will run you about 4000 Euro (6400 Canadian).

I also fell in love with this chair. I just called the only US retailer listed... Scan Design in Florida. Current price is roughly $5000 USD.
Has anyone sat in this chair yet?

Ball chairs said...

The advantages of using exercise ball chair instead of standard desk chair increased flexibility, motor skills, coordination and balance. The exercise ball chair is method of active sitting, requiring body to constantly make tiny adjustments to maintain balance. Because of this, you are actually exercising large groups of muscles without even realizing the fact. This results in strengthening body core muscles, which leads to better posture, stronger back muscles, flatter abs and much less neck & shoulder pain.
