Lo and behold! There is now a perfect chair designed for people who love to sit cross-legged in their chairs.
The new chair was produced by The Soul Seat after their designer and founder, Pack Matthews, was frustrated that the traditional chair would not allow him to sit comfortably for long hours when working at his desk.
Wanted a more comfortable chair that also let him to sit in more sitting positions, Matthews later collaborated with some of his friends and the result was the unique chair.
Thanks to its unique design, the chair’s design is even patented in the US Patent Office!
According to The Soul Seat on their website, the chair helps “tilts the pelvis forward, opens the hips, and lets the spine align to a comfortable, neutral position”.
In other words, the unique chair helps to alleviate pain and muscle tightness.
As the chair does not have arms and back, Matthews said that he designed the chair to provide comfortable sitting as the user would on any surface or floor.
And cross-legged is not the only position that users could try.
Users can sit in any way they want without the arms and the back of the chair stopping them.

“When I am working in my studio, whether it be large projects on the wall or smaller tasks at my desk, I am better able to leverage my body for working at strange angles on the Soul Seat. I can pivot, rotate, lean in, and turn my body as needed.” – Nathan Halwel, Artist ✨ Your workspace should encourage your creativity and enhance productivity, not hinder it.

Just about any variation of sitting position of how you normally sit, really.
However, The Soul Seats does not come cheap at the moment as it costs US$575, not to mention that the seats have sold out recently.
Nevertheless, that does not stop Asians like those from Malaysia and Singapore from getting excited at the idea of buying the seat.
“For those who love to sit cross-legged, I have found the perfect chair for you,” Twitter user @AzyanDraws wrote in a now-viral post.
