Offline Chair, Agata Nowak, smartphone addiction, furniture technology

As much as most of us hate to admit it, we’re completely addicted to our smartphones. We eat dinner with a fork in one hand, iPhone in the other. We walk down busy streets like zombies. We even found a way to project a touch screen onto our bare arms. But there’s still hope for curing these nasty habits, and a good first step might come in the form of a chair.

First spotted by designboom, the Offline Chair by Polish product and furniture designer Agata Nowak looks fairly simple at first glance, but it’s actually a brilliant piece of technology. An exterior “offline pocket” blocks all Wi-Fi and mobile signals to the device inside, leaving the phone owner free to sit sans scrolling and typing.
