During everyday office work, we are used to controlling our computers with keyboard and mouse, whereas the workspace surrounding us remains largely unattended. Addressing this untapped potential, we follow an interaction approach that is based on gestural interaction with smart furniture interfaces, subtly blended into the workspace environment. Adding to existing work on peripheral interaction, we provide a case study of a novel interface design that turns a flexible office chair into a ubiquitous input device. We propose using imprecise semaphoric chair gestures to support always-available, hands-free, and eyes-free interaction with a computer.
