“A chair’s function is not just to provide a place to sit; it is to provide a medium for self-expression. Chairs are about status, for example. Or signalling something about oneself. That’s why the words chair, seat and bench have found themselves used to describe high status professions, from academia to Parliament to the law”.


These words above were said by an English economist (Evan Davis) and the way that we understand it, is that Evan Davis was obviously referring to all of these different types chairs because we have a lot of office chairs with different names and functions, chairs like the ones we normally see in the reception areas to the ones in CEO’s offices.
