The concept for anti gravity chair was actually come from or inspired by Nasa. When astronauts are launching into space, they will sit in a reclined position, where their feet will be above their hearts. This position has been known to put very little stress on the body and this is very essential when counteract the force of gravity during the launching.

Moreover, sitting in an upright position could do a lot of damage to the astronauts bones and internal organs. Scientists who studied this sitting position believe that it could also be adapted into the design of furniture.
