I was unable to attend ICFF 2007 last month, but my top secret spy was sweet enough to sneak a peek at the Humanscale Design Studio's prototype for its new chaise lounge workstation. It's geek, it's chic and sadly, we can't get our mittens on it yet.
The piece was designed to marry a modern lounge chair and ottoman with an ergonomically designed laptop computer support. The result, which is tentatively being called the "Daybed," is a sleek and simple workstation that's easy on the body and the eyes. It can be adjusted to suit any user - whether it's being used as a laptop desk, a full time work station or a coffee table.

While reclined, the backrest also supports the elbows, reducing stress in the arms and shoulders. For additional images, read more
