The Listening Chair

Hand-stitched typography, a skate park gallery, Nina Simone and more in our weekly look at the Web

Combining comfort and design, Imogen Heap’s latest project turns a pod-like chair into a recording studio that asks fans the question, “What song still needs to be written?” “The Listening Chair”, comprised of speakers, a microphone, LED strips, and camera, records its guests listening to an Imogen Heap song and following along the visuals on the the screen. Their experience can either be sent to the performer in form of a personal message or may end up being used in the video.
