At least that's what I thought. Coming home from Helsinki the other day, these two chairs were sitting at one of the coffee shops in the terminal. Upon closer inspection there were actually two built in speakers located on the inside top of the chair along with a plug for your laptop. My guess is that this chair was a knockoff similar to the sphere, chair but nevertheless, a much more stylish way to kill some time at the airport rather than trying to lie down in between the bench arm rests.
