An office chair, sometimes known as a desk chair, is a chair meant to be used at a desk in an office. It’s generally a swivel chair with wheels for mobility and height adjustment. Modern office chairs generally include a single, separate weight bearing leg (commonly referred to as a gas lift) positioned beneath the seat. This leg splits into many smaller feet near the floor, which are typically wheeled and referred to as casters. As more workers spent their shifts seated at a desk, office chairs were designed around the mid-nineteenth century, resulting in the adoption of numerous features not present on other chairs.

Naturalist Charles Darwin, who put wheels on his study chair so he could get to his specimens more quickly, is one of the earliest known inventors of the contemporary office chair.

Businesses began to grow beyond the traditional model of a family firm with minimal emphasis on administration with the introduction of rail transport in the mid-19th century. As firms extended their service regions, more administrative personnel was necessary to keep up with orders, bookkeeping, and communication. While office work expanded, a cultural focus on boosting efficiency included an awareness of workplace settingstechnology, and equipment.

As a result of this knowledge, office chairs were created particularly for these new administrative personnel. This drew the attention of Otto von Bismarck, who is credited with popularizing the office chair during his presidency by distributing them around parliament.


The Centripetal Spring Armchair was created by American inventor Thomas E. Warren (b. 1808) in 1849 and manufactured by the American Chair Company in Troy, New York. It was initially seen during the Great Exhibition in London in 1851. It wasn’t until approximately 1850 that a group of American engineers started looking into how chairs may enhance health and relaxation by emphasizing posture and movement.

The office chair was created with the goal of increasing clerical staff’ productivity by allowing them to sit at their desks for extended periods of time. Employees may sit in a swiveling chair with casters and still access a variety of positions inside their work area, saving time and energy by not having to stand. The wooden saddle seat was created to suit and support the body of a seated employee, and the slatted back and armrests added to the comfort of the employee. Many of these types, like contemporary chairs, were slightly adjustable to give optimal comfort and therefore maximum working time.

There are a variety of office chairs available to meet a variety of requirements. The task chair is the most basic, usually without lumbar support and a headrest. These chairs are typically difficult to sit in for more than a couple of hours at a time, however they do provide more room to move than higher-end seats.

Mid-back chairs provide more back support and may be seated in for up to four hours at a time with the correct ergonomic design. The Herman Miller Aeron, for example, is a high-end chair in this category that is pleasant for long periods of time.

Full-back or executive chairs provide complete back and head support. Many executive chairs are made to be sat on for eight hours or longer. The most costly office chairs are usually these.
