Lexus will debut the Kinetic Seat Concept at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

Lexus is reinventing the car seat. The company’s Kinetic Seat Concept, which is set to be unveiled at this year’s Paris Motor Show, is made of a cushion and back rest engineered to move with the the occupant as external forces are applied to the body.

Lexus says their seat helps stabilize head movement caused by vehicle motion, keeping the field of vision steady, thus improving comfort. In addition, the spider web-like patterned net that makes up the seating area is flexible enough to fit the contours of the body, which in turn dispersed the weight of the occupant, making it possible to remain seated comfortably for extended periods of time.

No news yet as to whether this concept will ever make it into production vehicles, but it’s an exercise in comfort that’s worth noting.
