German term or phrase: Bürodrehstühle mit Sitzflächentiefe von 40cm
From a software company's marketing newsletter:

Es werden zwei Bürodrehstühle mit Sitzflächentiefe von 40cm gewünscht.

I believe "Bürodrehstühle" are "office swivel chairs," but I don't know about "Sitzflächentiefe."

Thanks!

Explanation:
Sitting in Comfort
3. Seat Depth
· Seat edge should not dig into the back of your knees.
· Full thigh and buttock support should be provided. A clenched fist should fit between the front edge of the seat and the lower part of your legs.
Seat depth is measured from the front edge of the seat to the lumbar support region of the backrest. If the seat depth is excessive, small people will not be able to sit back far enough to get the benefit of the backrest. The appropriate anthropometric dimension to consider is the buttock to popliteal length, as shown in Figure 4.
