Transformer Furniture: iBum Hides Photocopier in Chair

And why is this on TreeHugger? We love furniture that serves multiple functions and takes up less space. Since at every Christmas party somebody in the office is going to try and sit on the old Xerox 914, why not build it into a chair, avoiding the embarrassment of breaking the glass? It also is perfect for the home office, hiding the usually ugly machine from view.

Japanese "interactive designer" Tomomi Sayuda after a streaker jumped into the moat around the Emperor's palace. She writes:

"I was interested in the principle of the news, which is showing embarrassment without big harm for fun. For me, impact means positive and humorous reaction. I decided how to represent this principle. Finally I came up with the idea of scanning people's bum."
