Sumo Omni Bean Bag Chair

Surprised? So are we. We don’t generally take a look at tech-oriented furniture, but let’s make an exception. We could go on and on about the benefits of having comfortable furniture, but there’s no point. You know that already. When you are working with a notebook in your lap or just want to relax, having a comfortable chair to sit on can make a world of difference. Sumo is reinforcing that concept with a bean bag chair, appropriately named Omni.

Omni is not your standard bean bag chair. Oh, no! It’s a mega chair + couch + bed + pillow and a whole lot more. All in all, it’s huge size (4.5′ x 5.5′) can be transformed into 10 shapes, plus more, if you get creative with it. Not to mention, the construction is amazingly rugged with space age rip-proof nylon that’s comfortable and stain-proof. That’s about all there is to Omni. It’s a simple, nice, concept that works.

In our performance tests, we did our best to transform it in as many shapes as we possibly could and came up with 11 shapes before finally giving up. We jumped on Omni, threw it around and completely trashed it with messy junk food. And in the end, all it took was a wet towel to wipe clean the bean bag. Sweet!

It’s 18lbs. made it effortless to move it around, and as is the case with all bean bags, they transform according to your body’s shape, giving it maximum support, and as a result, maximum comfort. For the price of $129.99, Sumo Omni is a must have bean bag for any techie, and it’s worth every dollar. Excellent work, Sumo, excellent work!
