Modern Ovalia Chair: The Adjustable Computer Workstation

We all love the Ovalia egg chair. It's an iconic piece of furniture from the 60s. Since it hasn't been produced for over 30 years, it's hard to find these days. Previously, unless you could afford the price for those vintage pieces of furniture or the new ones with some fancy speakers, you were out of luck. Now, the iconic chair has been reinterpreted for our modern lives. We like how the Bud Adjustable Computer Workstation pays an homage to the Ovalia chair.

Bud is an adjustable computer workstation created by Won Shik Yu. We really like how it completely closes up like an egg. It makes for one useful and tidy workstation. The designer says that this workstation is made for a user of any age or sex. This type of workstation offers a wide range of adjustments and comfort. The basic shell is made out of fiber glass and will be available in a variety of different colors. The chair itself can rotate and offers a modicum of privacy, thanks to its egg-like shape. When not in use, the two different sections slide together and form a compact shell.

This is a really good reinterpretation of the needs of modern work spaces and uses. We can already sees these pods appearing in a variety of different settings, including your home. They seem to be perfect to work on your computer and get some work done in peace. On top of providing an extra workstation, it can also be used to lounge and relax, which is great.
