One would imagine that humans would need to sit for as long as they have been around. Surprisingly, though, according to Wikipedia1, chairs have been around for only about 5000 years. That is relatively modern considering our forefathers have been walking about this planet for more than 3 million years2.
But for the longest part of their history, chairs were to be found in the homes of the nobility and the clergy only. It was only in the 16th century that chairs started to become more common.
And you would be even more surprised to know that chairs did not start becoming “ergonomic” till about the 90s. Now that is certainly recent.
Now that we have taken this trip down the memory lane, let us come to the present.
