Elysium is a chair like no other. The result of years of scientific research, meticulous design and medical expertise, all of which combine to make it the most technologically advanced, supportive and luxurious chair ever created.
The chair’s patented design means it is also the only chair in the world where body position can be controlled by hand gesture, allowing the user to experience a feeling akin to weightlessness.
DavidHugh Ltd is based in Cambridge, England, where each chair is individually assembled by hand, using high quality suppliers from the local area. Every surface of the chair, from every angle, gets the same precise attention to detail, from the carbon fibre skeleton at the chair’s core, to the milled aluminium mechanisms and stitched leatherwork.
This results in an exceptional chair, best described as an extension of the body, where all joints are held in equilibrium. As the user reclines they move through a point where the body experiences zero-g, giving a feeling akin to that experienced during floatation therapy. Moving past zero-g, gravity can evoke a deeper sense of wellness and even pain relief in the user.
David Wickett says: “Bang & Olufsen offers the perfect synergy with Elysium, as it too combines uncompromising design with incredible performance. Bang & Olufsen and Elysium speak the same visual language that is great to see together. The Knightsbridge Bang & Olufsen showroom is a modern, evocative yet relaxing space where each individual can find their own unique experience of Elysium.”
There will be a launch edition of 20 Elysium chairs made available to the world, making them unique future collector’s items. Each launch edition chair will feature a numbered, engraved gold panel, reading “DavidHugh Launch Edition”. David Wickett, the chair’s designer and creator, will personally deliver the 20 launch edition versions of Elysium.
DavidHugh Ltd, the company behind the chair, is pleased to partner with Bang & Olufsen to launch Elysium to the public in a celebration of world leading design and innovation.
Elysium will be on display at the high-end audio-visual technology experts’ flagship showroom in Knightsbridge, West London. Once there, it will be launched to the press and public, where they will be able to experience the chair’s potential for aiding relaxation and aiding pain relief.
