Hoverit Lounger


Imagine the love child of Le Corbusier’s chaise lounge from 1929 and a modern magnetically levitated train, and you’ve got some idea of the Hoverit. This futuristic lounger defies gravity by using repelling magnetic forces in the bed and base, much as Asia’s maglev trains hover above their tracks. Equipped with castor wheels for easy mobility, the adjustable chaise is designed from an ethereal clear (or colored, for an extra charge) acrylic plastic, which sounds uncomfortable until you realize that the give of the magnetic forces forms its own sort of cushion. Plus, inventor Keith Dixon claims, the lounger’s magnetic fields can help those suffering from backaches, headaches, and muscular discomfort.
