In the case of this chair:
When I came back to work after the holiday break, there was a new chair in the conference room used by the Office of the CTO. We lovingly refer to our CEO, Carl Bass, as our maker in chief. It turns out Carl made this chair at his shop over the holiday break. It is surprisingly comfortable — much like a hammock made of wood. Using automation Carl can make two chairs from one piece of 4' by 8' plywood in about an hour.
Sitting is alive in the lab.
