The Briefcase Seat – Always Have A Place To Sit, As Long As You’re Carrying A Briefcase

Normally when I hear about something being stashed inside a briefcase it’s either a bomb, a machine gun or even a miniature remote-control go-kart track. This time however it’s something considerably more practical. Using a standard hard-shell briefcase and a set of nylon straps, artists Joan Korbes and Denis Oudendijk designed this briefcase which can be attached to a rail or other sturdy object and used as a seat. The pillows seem a necessary addition for making the seat a comfortable place to sit, but they unfortunately also take away from how much other stuff you can carry inside. And while the Briefcase Seat isn’t available for sale, with a little bit of engineering know-how (you might want to reinforce those hinges) you can probably just make your own.

    Fantastic! What a great idea. If only it was a tad bigger you could carry all your work essentials plus pillows for that much needed rest! Ciao –
