5. The Knot
Birgit Ostergaard is the creator of this unusual lounge chair, which is basically a big, overstuffed knot!

9. The Hechima 4
This chair resembles a hollowed out hornet’s nest, but it is actually made of vulcanized fiber and its entire body is extremely flexible. It is quite strong, though, and it was primarily designed for recreation purposes.
10. The ‘Seatub’
While it may look like an upright bathtub, this lounger is all chair! It is reported to be as comfortable as a nice relaxing dip in the bath.
11. The Half Moon

14. The Soft Pipe
If this lounge chair doesn’t look like a piece of abstract sculpture, I don’t know what does! The seat and backrest are made of two molded soft pips, and are trimmed at the foot with softer metal. It is covered in a very soft leather, and it very attractive to the eye. It was created by Andrea Fino and Samanta Snidaro.
15. The Hovering Magnetic Chair
Okay, so it looks a bit like where you would sit during a dental exam, but this is one cool lounger! It is literally suspended over magnets! It doesn’t look very comfortable, and it has a big price tag, costing $10,000, so it may be difficult to talk yourself into. It was designed by Hoverit, Ltd.’s Keith Dixon.
