Spanish furniture manufacturer Figueras has teamed up with architect Antonio Bonamusa to produce a laptop-friendly seating system for the conference market. The Megaseat has been configured to accommodate cables, microphones and lecterns, with its F-45 desk providing access to Internet, fax and telephone.
