Don’t sit on your stool – you need the right tool

We have been sent some useful tips by furniture manufacturer Sedus on how to sit properly in a chair.

Some people, the company informs us, are happy sitting on an orange crate or a simple stool. Are they really? But, it warns us, ‘For your professional work you need effective tools.’ An angle grinder, perhaps? Or a power drill? No. A good office chair, of course. But that on its own will not suffice, apparently. It needs to be adjusted properly.

We don’t know about you, but our personal idea of comfort doesn’t involve a chair or an office. Why sit when you can lie down? We’d happily swap your matt black, over-engineered, anatomically correct creation for a towel and a beach. Now you’re talking.
