But where are the computers???

This ad for Steelcase is from 1981 and features their top of the line office furniture. I looked at it and the first thing that came to mind was, what do these people do all day? Work???

No wonder they drank so much at lunch…

    These are pretty cool actually.

    Not sure if they ahve to share the right elbow space, though.

    But you’re right, certainly by 1981 there would be computers.

    I guess they didn’t want it to look like a computer ad.
