  1. Sadly this is in my country :S, I feel shame :D…. Sorry on behalf of the other Dutch Designers who do have sense (and taste :P) Jeffrey. Form Follows Function is a good saying because of situations like this…

  2. Clearly you are expected to sit at a 30-degree angle to the desk, or stand on the bed and then lower yourself into the chair (in which case, lifting yourself back out of the chair could count as your exercise for the day!)

  3. Loved the Murphy’s Law Twitter comment noting how ironic it was that a Murphy bed would rectify the situation. I also spy your fitbit, and it makes me happy.

  4. Rogier: I am not in an airport hotel, sir; I am in a nice business hotel in the heart of Leiden, the city I am visiting. But of course you are jesting in any case. A design problem is never the user’s fault.

  5. I had the exact same problem and asked at the front desk for a hot fix… and they gave me an office chair with wheels which worked quite well for the three nights in Leiden.

    Thanks for coming to Europe!

  6. Every item in this room was perfectly designed in separate facilities, each with its own usability, comfort and stress tests. This must be a case of user error.
