OpenAire combines a laptop carrying case, work surface, and chair into a lightweight hybrid that can enable computing anywhere. The system consists of a semi-rigid protective sleeve designed as an ergonomic laptop work surface and a protective shell that also functions as a comfortable seat.
The form factor of the laptop case is sculpted with a unique contour that fits the user’s lap while sitting in various positions. It positions the laptop to reduce strain on the wrists while typing. The case can be fitted with an optional protective shell that opens to become a soft seat, allowing the user to work comfortably in almost any location.
Instructions: OpenAire can go from a shoulder bag to a mobile workspace in no time. Simply remove and open the protective shell/seat and sit down on it. Place the computer case in your lap, unzip, open the lid, and get to work. It’s that easy! If you don’t plan to use the seat you can simply leave it at home. Either way, the system can be set up and broken down in seconds.
The Fluid Rocker’s soft curves and ergonomic form make it as inviting to look at as it is to sit in. The chair’s flowing organic shape is achieved through a one piece fiber glass construction with a high-gloss finish. For added comfort and texture, a layer of soft natural felt wraps over the entire outer face of the chair. On the upper side of the chair, the felt provides added cushion for sitting, while on the underside of the chair it provides for quieter, softer rocking, and protection for your floors.
