Sumo Omni: I Dub Thee Blogger's Chair
I have found it - the ultimate computing chair/pillow contraption. It's called the Sumo Omni and it most closely resembles a big-arse pillow and glorified bean bag. I first heard about it from Derek Punsalan a year ago and I've had my eye on it ever since. Unlike most reviews of Sumo products you'll see online, I actually bought the $129 Sumo Omni myself.
In the 24 hours I have owned the Omni, it has already changed my computing style. Rather than being bent over on a chair while working on my desk, I have experimented with several computer-friendly positions.
As with any bean bag product, the Omni conforms to your needs and can be shaped however you want. Unlike other cheaper bags, the Omni is constructed of sturdy nylon, which isn't quite as soft as anything like cotton but it is rip proof and will last. It also has the added benefit of sliding quite nicely on wood floors - always a plus.
The Omni can also function as a makeshift bed for unexpected visitors, although they might be a bit sore in the morning. I accidentally dozed off while writing this yesterday and was quite pleased with its large size. The only real problem with the Omni, which is shared with most bean bag products, is that its hard to get up from one, especially after you've sunk in and made your own space. Other than that, I love this thing.
If you have an extra football field or two of space in your dwelling, definitely take a look at the Omni. Do you have space for one at your place?

So back in February, I reviewed an extraordinary product from Sumo: the Gigantor, a premium beanbag large enough for the whole family, a replacement for a sofa. (Star Trek-obsessed household that we are, it was soon dubbed “The Tribble.”) Now Sumo has a new, portable product that also intimidates and challenges expectation Continue reading →
The Omni Reloaded isn't a bean bag -- instead, it's a polyurethane chair/backrest. It takes up a lot less room than Sumo's normal products, as you can scrunch it up and store it upright in a closet, or with the included travel bag. "Scrunching" as I call it is the name of the game, as you can pretty much contort this thing into any form you want. Continue reading →
I love my Lazy Boy couch and my double recliner, but most furniture items want you to adapt to them instead of the other way around. You can’t easily move a recliner around your home from room to room or fold it up and shove it under the bed when you don’t need it. But with the new Sumo Omni Reloaded from Sumo Lounge you can do exactly that. Continue reading →
