The Posture Chair
Harold left Cramer in 1930 to work in the office furniture industry. There he learned about posture chairs, which despite the Depression were in high demand as more American workers migrated from the fields and farms into office jobs.
While the posture chair offered adjustability and back support, Harold came to understand its shortcomings – the tools were tricky to operate, and the nuts and bolts often fell off during use. A year later, Harold returned to Cramer and there led the development of a new, improved concept in office seating.
In 1934, the Cramer Posture Chair was born, featuring an adjustable upholstered seat and back. When Harold demonstrated the chair for J.C. Hall, President of Hallmark Cards, Inc., he was greatly impressed, and Hallmark would go on to buy thousands.
The safe business was sold in 1940, and the newly-named Cramer, Inc. staked its future on product innovation – chairs designed to support the posture and comfort of every seated worker.
