Look: Texte-ile Chair Made From Discarded Laptop Keyboards!

VOICE SYSTEMS is a company that creates computer systems with integrated laptops specifically designed for users with visual disabilities, resulting in laptops with their keyboard elements removed. Designer Dante Bonuccelli took these discarded elements and fashioned his pun-ny named Texte-ile, a lounge chair that incorporates keys as both material and pattern. Quite stunning, and as noted by Mocoloco, if the keys actually retain their ability to be pressed, the lounge would provide an interesting and comfortable sensation when sat upon. Another full size image below...

We're wondering if we can fashion something similar from a DIY perspective, as the concept is brilliantly simple. Normally we have a fondness for mechanical keyboards, but perhaps in this situation the membrane-style would better suit a chair we'd sit in, for both comfort and in regards to noise. More details and photos of the Texte-ile at the link below.
