PSFK Presents The Future Of Work

The LimbIC Chair features a unique, ergonomic design, replacing the traditional seat with two made-to-measure carbon fiber shells that allow for a wide range of movements while supporting the spine.

The $8,500 ‘smart’ chair is designed to act as an extension of the body, adjusting to the user’s movements to keep their body constantly engaged, improving circulation, concentration, and mood. LimbIC combines the latest from neuroscience with ergonomics, stimulating the limbic system and giving maximum freedom of movement as it follows each physical motion.

You don’t sit, you float. You are not blocked, you are free. Your energy is not drained, it is stimulated. You can dance, move, stretch, relax and stay in tune with your thoughts. Because of this LimbIC has amazing effects on your mood and on your performance. LimbIC helps you focus better, lets your ideas flow, strengthens your posture, and helps you relax.

PSFK is asking readers to show us great examples of products and initiatives that help make their workplace healthier.

Do you balance on a fitness ball while balancing the books? Maybe you prefer to stand tall at your desk while your colleagues admire your stature from their padded chairs? Whatever your preference, we want you to share it with us. Send us pictures of your unique desk setup, or shoot us links to other cool examples of fitness furniture.

Tweet us your ideas to @psfk using #FoW #WorkFitness so we know who to credit. The best response will win a Fitbit Ultra Wireless Activity/Sleep Tracker.

Over the next 4-8 weeks we want to start a conversation around what you see is possible in the Future of Work. Feel free to follow the conversation here and participate in the ongoing competitions. Find the previous Week 1 challenges here: Day 1 and Day 2.
