Description
This work offers a new perspective on one of the most common cultural artefacts, the chair, explaining the history, physiology and politics of how and why we sit the way we do. The chair, ever-present in out habitat, forcefully shapes the social and physical dimensions of our lives. Tracing the history of the chair as we know it from its crudest beginnings in the Neolithic Age to its place in the modern ergonomic office, Galen Cranz uses anecdotes, literary references and famous designs to document our ongoing love affair with the chair - despite its potentially harmful effects on our bodies.
