A traditional milking stool served as a model for this innovative chair. The three-legged chair, with a simple appearance, comprised a wooden structure that was produced in different sizes for children and for adults. The two rear legs formed the support structure for the backrest. The concept allowed varying sitting positions and thus was an early version of a chair that considered ergonomic requirements.
