The ‘Listening Chair’ is a mini-recording studio designed by designer-engineer Moritz Waldemeyer for Imogen Heap. The mod-looking egg-chair is fully equipped with speakers, a microphone, LED strips, and camera.

Imogen Heap had asked for the chair as a part of  her latest project ‘What Song Still Needs To Be Written?’, where fans respond to this question. Design Boom described the creative process:

The pod allows people to escape their hectic surroundings and delve for a moment into their favorite tune with Imogen Heap, who also helped with its conception, guiding the audience through the experience on screen. Fans can then decide whether they want their contribution to be a personal message to the performer or take a chance on it being used in the video which will accompany the song.
