Furniture At Work, following research from the University of Leeds, has revealed a scary glimpse into what remote workers will look like in 70 years.
While working from home was once a rare treat, it has become the norm for millions of people following the Covid-19 pandemic.
But a grotesque new model may have you asking to go back into the office.
Furniture At Work has revealed what home-workers could look like by the year 2100 – and it’s not a pretty sight.
Their model, dubbed Anna, has a hunchback, dark, swollen eyes, and claw-like hands as a result of working from home.

‘Anna displays many physical effects because of consistent use of technology, screen exposure and poor posture, as well as highlighting potential mental health issues,’ Furniture at Work said.
The team created Anna following research from the University of Leeds which found that a third of UK home-workers have no dedicated workspace at home.
‘To visualise the effects of not having a proper place to work at home, Furniture At Work used scientific research and worked with healthcare experts to reveal what the remote worker of the future could look like,’ Furniture At Work explained.
Working from bed has taken its toll on Anna, who has a hunched back with raised shoulders, while staring at a screen all day has given her red, swollen eyes.
Long hours with her hand curled around her mouse has caused her fingers to curl into a permanent claw.
She’s also fallen victim to weight gain, a weak immune system thanks to insufficient fresh air, anxiety and depression.
Based on the findings, health experts are urging home-workers to take measures to stay healthy while working from home.
