This Office Chair Is designed For Taking Naps

By Mayukh Saha / Truth Theory

Let’s talk about corporate workdays and why they are just stressful. An average human being is expected to do 8 hours of uninterrupted work. There are very few breaks and apart from these breaks, one cannot really leave the chair without getting penalized. Moreover, people are asked to repeat this arduous task five or six days a week.

It is especially this case in Japan where people were literally dying of white collar exhaustion. People just collapsed on the road after an unbearable day at work.

There are ongoing talks in New Zealand, as a matter of fact, to reduce the workweek to 4 days.

Anyway, generally, in the afternoon, people feel the energy drainage and get a little sleepy. It can easily be countered with thirty minutes of quality rest. However, since the “corporate” environment does not think it’s appropriate, people just drudge on. But, at the same time, several big American corporations have allowed their employees to have power snoozes so that they could work better. These corporations include HuffPost, Mercedes-Benz and even NASA.

But the entire issue might be solved by this revolutionary new invention from none other than Japan itself. The retailer “Thanko” has created a chair that doubles up as a perpendicular flatbed. They appropriately call it ‘Lay Flat Office Chair’. Its entire function is all in the name.

Arriving unassembled and costing around 600 USD, or around 50000 JPY, this chair weighs around 50 pounds, and measures about two feet wide by 51 inches high by 69 inches depth in dimensions.
I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind
