In today’s business environment, more and more people are spending too much time at their desks, staring at a computer screen for at least 8-9 hours a day.
But what if your job is prematurely killing you?
Long hours of uninterrupted sitting can lead to several health complications that include obesity, increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat, and unhealthy cholesterol levels.
There’s a growing body of evidence that suggests office jobs may be the silent killer of millions of people.
Researchers linked sitting for long periods with an increased risk of early death
To highlight this health crisis, a UK-based designer- Chairbox has designed coffin-shaped chairs aimed at those who spend long hours at their desks.
Aptly named ‘The Last Shift Office Chair’, it reminds you how this whole grind culture (long hours at work) is like voluntary slavery.
‘The Last Shift Office Chair’ will change the habit
The coffin chair is a wooden frame on casters. In addition, to amusing, the design of this chair also reminds you that working for long hours is slowly taking you closer to your death.
Designer Chairbox says that the inspiration for this clever design came from Chairbox’s own experience of spending long hours at his desk.
