Ahem. Not exactly. Its design is at least a millennium old, in Africa. Somewhere, I had the documentation -- a photograph from an extant chair QUITE old and well within period, if not before, from some museum somewhere -- but the link doesn't work anymore. >>>
Thank you. I will add this to the chairs-msg file the next time I update it. If come across this documentation or other, please let me know and I'll add that to the file as well.
