Called Isola, the design for Italian brand Tacchini features a wide asymmetrical shell so users can shuffle about and get comfortable in public places like hotel lobbys.

Here are some more details from the designers:
“With your own private table built in to Isola's organically-shaped and generous seat shell you can relax comfortably and find new ways to work and play!”
ISOLA is a new typology of armchair. A furniture design for today, where we are constantly connected to the internet via laptops, tablets, smartphones and other portable devices.
While using these devices in many public or semi-private situations, we noticed that seating postures change. People tend to lounge around, seeking unconventional positions and generally sitting in a more relaxed fashion.
As a response to this, we designed a wide and roomy seat-shell with a gently-organic shape lacking an obvious direction. Combined with an integrated, oval tabletop, Isola moves away from other more rigid solutions and encourages more open and intuitive use.
Of course, having the small table close at hand makes for a very practical place to rest your (analogue) book, glass of wine, or a bite to eat too.
