In researching Thoneteando I found this short video about Michael Thonet:
Via Core77 Design Blog I discovered this downloadable Chair from Turkish Student Design Collective DesigN Nobis…err When I later visited their site, it is not so clear it is a design collective..

I wasn’t aware of it, but there is an Australian Thonet company Thonet Australia Pty Ltd which I found through Infolink Com Au
Since 1979, Thonet has been bringing a proud tradition of furniture design and innovation to Australia through its distribution of Thonet bentwood chairs, produced in original factories established in 1880 by the Thonet family. Our collection extends to other leading European manufacturers such as Amat-3, Tolix and De Sede. We also carry locally produced tables and soft seating for hospitality, commercial and domestic use.
I thank the reader who entered the search term “graphic designer chair sore legs” into Google today and clicked here. That gave me the idea to post the #1 Google search result for that search term of today: KneelSit.com.
For lower back pain there are of course other solutions as the sit ball or simply following Pilates lessons as I try to do myself:-)
