Living Room Anthropometry
Living room anthropometry is a technique that helps designers and architects understand the human body and its function. It measures the height of chairs, sofas, and tables in relation to the human body and helps to determine optimal comfort levels. The main objective of anthropometrics is to create comfortable spaces for all people in a given space. It is also helpful for designers who want to make their living room accessible to people with disabilities or special needs.
Anthropometry involves the measurements of people based on their height, weight, and other physical characteristics. Considering this information helps designers create a perfect relationship between a user and a space. For example, a study table must be shaped to the height of the user, while a dining table needs to be designed so that it provides proper seating for all guests.
Another important concept in anthropometry concerns seating. While it is possible to purchase a sofa of any size and shape, you may want to avoid those with too many chaise ends or extra deep sofas. Although these types of couches might fit well in narrow hallways, they do not function well ergonomically.
