Keep your posterior cool even when electricty bills force raising thermostat temps. Series of small holes in leather, leading to channels in the foam padding terminating at an internal fan.

NOTE: reversable fan motor has potential for gas dissipation.

Saab offers the feature on 9-5 models, how about Herman Miller?

       Ptoddadactyle: Now *this* is an idea. Welcome to the Halfbakery. For hot climates, a small air-conditioner in the seat of your favorite reclining chair would beat whole-house climate control in energy efficiency.

       I think it'd go better in cloth, though. Leather just isn't comfortable to sit on. Cold in the winter, hot in the summer and usually sticky.

       [Ptoddadactyle] obtained their account on the day this idea was posted.   

       [Ptoddadactyle] then posted one other idea that day, one more idea three days later, and then was never heard from again.

       // All profits //   

       This being the amount remaining after you have deducted your travel expenses, subsistence allowance, accomodation costs, inconvenience payments, and a trifling sum to cover sending your children to a top-class private school ?   

       Having previously made the aquaintance of [MB], and being substantially poorer as a result, we know whereof we speak.
