New Age Seating?

Earlier posts show furniture that I like or would be fun for school. I always keep my eyes open. Staying in a hotel in London last week I was surprised to see a row of gold stools shaped as teeth. Unusual - yes, 'cool' - maybe, comfortable - not very.
Trendy and unusual seats are fun but they have to be comfortable, especially if we want people to use them. The dead straight line of stools does suggest not very heavy usage in what was an extremely busy foyer. Looks aren't everything - and I am not even sure quite how trendy they are either for that matter! I asked two young people - I won't print their reply.
