Charles Darwin Office Chair

ADDPMP695

An office chair is a type of chair designed for use at a desk in an office. It is usually a swivel chair, with a set of wheels for mobility and adjustable height.

The first concept of a height-adjustable, swivelling chair with castors was illustrated in 1505 by the Nuremberg (Germany) patrician Martin Löffelholz von Kolberg in his technologically-illuminated manuscript, the so-called Löffelholz Codex. Office chairs then developed around the mid-19th century as more workers spent their shifts sitting at a desk, leading to the adoption of several features not found on other chairs. One of the earliest known innovators to have created the modern office chair was English naturalist Charles Darwin (1809–1882) who put wheels on the chair in his study so he could get to his specimens more quickly.
