You can also spot this chair in the brilliant new Season 4 of Black Mirror, Charlie Brooker’s science fiction series which continues to explore the bleak future that technology may lead us to. In the Star Trek homage USS Callister – the first episode of the highly anticipated new series – Robert Daly (the CTO of  gaming company Callister) returns home every evening to take his seat in an Interstuhl Silver 362S High Back Executive Chair and plug into his alternative universe as Captain of the space ship USS Callister.

The space ship where Daly acts out his fantasies as heroic Captain is from his favourite retro TV show Space Fleet which he ‘accesses’ using a futuristic chip which plugs into the side of the head. As he spends so much time in this alternative reality, his chair needs to provide ultimate comfort, back support and perfect recline so the Interstuhl desk chair is a very fine choice! It’s no coincidence that the same chair also appeared in Star Trek (2009).

You may not necessarily agree with Lord Sugar’s business tactics in the BBC’s The Apprentice but you can’t fault his choice of chair – an Interstuhl Silver 362S High Back Executive Chair for himself and a Mid Back version for each of his advisors.
