Kyushu University is one of Japan's leading research-oriented schools. I was looking at this shot of their facilities and was struck by these chairs:
They're so strange-looking and functional, I don't think I've ever seen anything like them. They're part of furniture manufacturer Itoki's Scrum series, designed specifically for educational institutions, and I really dig them. Plenty of space on either side to stow a bag. (Unfortunately I couldn't find any better images of them--online Japanese furniture catalogs suck.)
They strike me as a more accessible in-chair-storage solution than those Vyper Industrial shop chairs. I'd like to see the two of them mashed up, even if "Vyper Scrum" sounds vaguely like some kind of slur.
