The chair I use in my home office. A good balance of budget friendly price and quality. And my 18 month old loves looking in the reflective surface on the back, so there's that.

Formula: BCF = concentration in organism / concentration in water

The Bioconcentration Factor (BCF) is a measure of the extent to which a chemical substance accumulates in aquatic organisms from water, relative to the concentration of the substance in the surrounding environment. The BCF is dimensionless. A higher BCF indicates that the substance is more likely to accumulate in organisms. The concentrations should be in the same unit (e.g., mg/kg) to ensure that the BCF is calculated accurately. This model is used in ecotoxicology to assess the bioaccumulation potential of substances.
