Kogan HQ Looks Like Business-Class Plane Seating

Most workplaces feature desks, but it's not entirely surprising that online electronics retailer Kogan chose to go in a different direction. A recent revamp to its office has replaced many desks with a chair which combines a laptop stand and built-in speakers in the headrests.

You can plug music into the USB slots on the chairs for music playback, and there's even built-in massage options. Kogan's blog post doesn't make it clear how many staff have the new option; I for one would prefer a standard desk, but it's good to see other approaches explored.

    These guys are going to be in a world of pain...

    I do tend to agree with the other commenters about the arm positioning. If there wer some well placed/adjustable arm rests, I think this could be fantastic though. I'd surely put my hand up to test drive one in my office!
