I would recommend slowing the spinning. 1 radian per second would be an enter revolution every 6 seconds or so, which I think would not be very relaxing or luxurious. I know of some roof-top restaurants (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_revolving_restaurants) that revolve very slowly (on the order of two radians per hour seems to be typical). For a chair, perhaps a complete revolution every few minutes might be ideal??

1 r/s at 7 m diameter is a tangential speed of 3.5 m/second.  You would have to jog to get on it, and getting off could be fatal for the elderly. It would, however, be very useful for basic training of infantry troops, jumping on and off a moving vehicle, practicing parachute rolls, etc., and for demonstrating spatial disorientation to student pilots.

...the rotating chair consists of an ordinary comfortable chair ...

Better upholster it with wipe-clean fabric ,

That "problem" is easily solved; you get on and off at the middle, not the edge.

I think the big problem with patenting this is the existence of "prior art" as ChrialSPO has pointed out
Please disregard all previous signatures.

there is not a prior art, for rotating buildingS they are intuitively different , however for children rides they rotate fast which differs from a rotating platform of 0.03 to 0.1 radian/sec
