Tai Chi chair

Modernism meets the far East with this chair that was designed to support Tai Chi exercises that you can do while sitting on it. With a few simple bends in the frame, the designer has created supports for hands and feet at several places. I like this way of design thinking, since it promotes integrating physical and spiritual practice with everyday activities. If it is hard to take a separate time slot for such practices on a regular basis, at least these objects invite you to occasionally take a step back from what you are doing, and pay some attention to your body again.
