Work-chair with a giant no-distraction hood

Vitra's "Workbay" looks like my kind of chair. At first glance, it appears to have been designed for top-heavy aliens who have evolved giant brains that make them resemble lollipop-headed Blythe-doll uberman — which is pretty darned cool. Then it becomes apparent that this chair will effectively shield you from visual and auditory distractions, so that you can buckle down in a truly obsessive, single-minded focused way in front of your screen, and that's even cooler.

Workbay protects its users visually and acoustically thanks to the shape of its high backrest. It opens the possibility for users to distance themselves, even in busy environments, so as to be able to concentrate better with fewer disruptions.
