I am designing a question-mark-shaped bench for a friend’s shop. I am a graphic designer by trade, the anal swiss-trained type, and I have researched the ergonomics of a good design.
The cushion thickness/depth for the seating/backrest has a big impact on the space required to meet ergonomic standards (the area involved is limited). I would hate to spec a thickness that does not provide the cushion maker, whoever that may be, the proper requirements for their trade. The client doesn’t have anyone lined up yet and I don’t know of any in my area.
I am thinking of speccing 3-inch thick cushions. Anyone have any experience?
