The Lotus Desk

I’ve been increasingly dissatisfied with office chairs both at the office and at home lately. I just can’t seem to find a configuration that gives me the back support I need for hours-long coding sessions. I’ve considered joining the standing-desk crowd but I’m not sure that would be any more comfortable.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from meditation it’s that the lotus (or half-lotus) position is remarkably stable and conducive to good posture over extended periods of time, at least for me. Combine that knowledge with a beautiful sunny day, and voila, the Lotus Desk. I still need to work out a few kinks, but I think I could get used to this. I wonder if I can find someone to do some custom woodwork for me…
