Nike Microclimate Chair Heats And Cools With Style

This chair is meant to revitalize players and get them back into the game, but it looks kind of comfy and I'd probably just fall asleep in it.

"This piece of equipment has sensing technology, heating, cooling and air built into it that allows us to control the state of an athlete," Lynn explains in the movie, which Dezeen produced for Nike. The chair is designed for sports that involve intense bursts of exercise followed by short periods of rest, such as basketball where rolling substitutions can be made at any point throughout the game. "For certain sports, where you go in and out, it's advantageous to build a little microclimate around a player," Lynn says.
