Just yesterday we meditated on a similar topic over at our brother site, Jaunted. Eames chairs in airports comes with a point that applies here as well. That point: traveling often brings you into intimately close contact with extraordinary design in seemingly unextraordinary places.
Next time you enter a hotel room and have a seat at the desk in order to plug in your gadgets, but find yourself bouncing on the seat a bit in surprise at the comfort, take a moment and look at that seat. It may be an Aeron, or a Bertoia, another Eames or even an Eames and an Aarnio. The more you know!
