Working with command consoles, managing everything from a control room, is a lot of work. You have to make sure that you are on top of everything to avoid mistakes, to avoid missing anything, and to do the job in the best manner possible. While this might seem easy at first, it can quickly become tiresome. This is true in all cases, but even more so for people with terrible furniture. Control room furniture has to have a certain level of comfort in order to be usable. If there is any reason why it hurts to use or why it is annoying in general, then you are not going to work at your best.
