Centripetal Spring Armchair: Designed over a century and a half ago, in 1849, Thomas E. Warren’s Centripetal Spring Armchair had all the hallmarks of a modern office chair: castors, a swiveling base, and—surprisingly—a tilting seat, thanks to the eight, springy steel loops on which the seat was suspended.
