Stools upholstered, printed, and arranged to suggest a giant numeric keypad. Totally useless, and completely delightful. Also somewhat enigmatic, at least to your shamefully monolingual correspondent. The photo appears to originate from this Japanese site called Pantograph, which, sadly, I cannot read.

    I was able to read the Pantograph site by translating the Japanese text to English using the built-in translation tool on the Google Chrome Browser. The photos that contain text, however, are not translated.
