Agata Nowak's Offline Chair disallows phone usage in the comfiest way imaginable

Furniture and Product Designer Agata Nowak’s latest installation, the Offline Chair, is designed to change the societal norm of super-gluing oneself to their phone screen by utilizing special pockets that block off mobile and Wi-Fi signals.

Studies show that the average user unlocks their phone 110 times per day, with phone addicts on the extreme end of the bell curve surpassing the 900 mark.

“Today we spend more and more time looking at screens of our smartphones. We pull out our smartphones unconsciously whenever we have a free moment, which prevents us from focusing on one thing, and simply from relaxing,” says Agata Nowak.
