The Ballerina Sweetspot is designed for that rare breed of music listener who wants nothing but a place to focus in relaxed concentration to his/her collection of Bach in complete comfort for long periods of time. The listening chair was designed for this purpose and this purpose alone, designed by Michael Hollesen as the ultimate music lover's chair… The chair comes equipped with a specially designed headrest that helps support your music-loving head without interfering with the sound (no sound reflection surface, thus the small surface area) and is fully adjustable. Memory foam supports the body, while curling armrests are hollowed to hold a remote control, and the leg and frame are made with high-grade aluminum to reduce sonic vibration.
"The Ballerina Sweetspot listening chair is the result of a true collaboration of function and form, of a passionate audiophile and a talented and dedicated designer. And it all started in PowerPoint. The first idea going into the design was actually the curved (and hollow) arm rests. I wanted something elongated that could hold the remote controls so you—or I—wouldn’t need to sit with them in the lap on the floor or away on a coffee table", said Michael Hollesen.
The Ballerina Sweetspot by Klutz Design is on display at Audio Concept in Stockholm Sweden as a prototype, with plans for production in late January/early February 2010 at a price of around $8,000 in extremely limited numbers (50 a year). We're hoping of a CES appearance so we can see if this is indeed the ultimate audiophile's chair.
